It's About Time To
Celebrate The Snubs. . .
Maybe this post title and its theme came to mind because I know the nominations for the Academy Awards are scheduled to be announced February 8. Yes, it's a week from today but it's an important reminder that it's now February. I mean this month is not just about groundhogs, presidents and valentines, right?
I am well-aware this announcement will be a non-event for Punxsutawney Phil and others who seem to place their attention elsewhere. After all, it's not the Super Bowl. And it's just the nominations not the actual awards presentation ceremony.
Even as a movie-goer, it doesn’t matter to me except it usually means some films I have missed but wanted to see may get a return engagement at the local cineplex because of the nominations.
I am also fairly certain that the announcement will lead to celebrating those who have been chosen yet will be quickly followed by sharing news of those who have been overlooked for one reason or another.
Reasons for a snub just like anything else in life are countless. Hey, haven’t each of us experienced such a moment? Likely not for a performance on screen but we’re all on stage in daily life in one way or another, right?
In real estate you may experience losing a listing. Or a buyer misses that chance to win in a multiple offer situation. Perhaps more real life than real estate you may lose a dream job or some other opportunity of a lifetime.
There are reasons why things happen. And don’t happen. There are those who say it's an honor to be nominated. So, isn't finding the thrill of participating each and every day an important part of life?
We’ve likely been in a situation where something good happens even as the curtain seems to close and the screen goes dark. It’s not the end. . . Far from it. There's still more to come.
Happy February. It will likely be gone before many know it has started. Once again. Enjoy the many moments of this second month of 2022.
