Wednesday Wisdom: Expect Exceptional Moments

January 4, 2023

Wednesday Wisdom, Wednesday Morning, Inspiration for Women Entrepreneurs, Female Business Owners

Twinkle lights intertwined with live greenery hung from the old rope factory beams setting the stage for the New Year’s Eve Wedding Celebration as guests gathered under these ‘stars’ finding their seats in brilliant white chairs. Right on cue the expert wedding planner directed the bridal party down the aisle in step with the processional music provided by a popular wedding disc jockey. The pastor, chosen for the occasion, waited patiently, smiling until the bride arrived in front of him unlinking arms with her father as both their matching dimples radiated the joy of the moment.

After the personal exchange of vows made the audience laugh and smile, while making the bride and groom tear up, they were proclaimed husband and wife and strolled down the aisle to begin their first dance while others joined in immediately. Afterwards exquisite passed hors d’oeuvres and the signature drink “Rosemary Manhattans” were delivered by an exceptional catering company. Food, drinks, frivolity followed until I found myself on the dance floor with my son, the groom.

Our brown eyes matching, with hands held tightly, we danced in each other’s joy to the song “How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You” by James Taylor, a song I used to dance to with him as his once tiny legs clutched around my waist on days I wasn’t working. Now my 6’4” son and I smiled with a deep and resonating love as 150 people watched in awe. I believe my heart burst on the dance floor during those three minutes.

As the reception continued with guests dancing the night away in New York City at this special New Year’s Eve Wedding, and as the Times Square Ball dropped across the East River, champagne Jello shots were distributed in time for “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra. As the last dance happened at 1 a.m. the full dance floor moaned not wanting to end the night.

Today’s first Wednesday Wisdom of 2023 is to remind you to find deep joy in what you do this year. It doesn’t take a formal wedding celebration overlooking the Manhattan skyline to feel the emotion. Sometimes all it takes is living in all our moments 100% of the time and seeking the joy from them. As a woman entrepreneur, I know for a fact stellar vendors can also make a significant difference in the lasting memories of our entrepreneurial experiences. Never short yourself on hiring the right people or company to support your efforts.

As I unwind from the thrill of this amazing event, know that I will soon be planning more events – perhaps, not as fancy or significant as my son’s wedding, to bring women in business, sports, and equality together to celebrate their own passions and joy. Happy 2023 – may it be bright!
