October 17th is National Mulligan Day. It’s all about do-overs and celebrating the chances we get to redefine, re-evaluate and rediscover areas in our lives that hold… The Big R.
(Note: R = Regrets ….. )
Most of the time, second chances are about giving it to someone else, but what we REALLY need to master is giving ourselves a do-over… the chance to try again.
Before this get too deep, we need to shed some light on this whole Mulligan Day and how it came about. It’s a commonly used golf term that dates back to the 1920’s when one time manager of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, David Mulligan made a mistake during a game and retook his shot. To this day, not only golf, but other sports and games have adopted this phrase. Why not the game of life?
Sooo c’mon… take a Mulligan!!!
Let go of The Big R and give yourself the gift of another go, whether it’s redefining a former relationship with a friend or loved one, re-evaluating a past mistake and viewing it as an opportunity for self-growth or rediscovering a hobby or interest that didn’t go so well the first time.
Look at all your regrets with fresh eyes and curiosity to see from another vantage point…and just WATCH where it takes you.
Can you hear us cheering you onward?!?
Take the second shot.
What do you have to lose?
Nothing… but regrets…..
Laugh hard, smile no matter what you’re going through, give everyone a second chance, and don’t ever forget…rules were meant to be broken…life is too short to be anything but happy.
