Opportunity Came Knocking
I came across a blog I wrote just over a year ago. Reading through it, I saw it was somewhat prophetic, though unintended. Thus, I couldn’t resist reprinting the more relevant content.
Sometimes life presents us with an opportunity. It may not be the opportunity we hoped for or wanted or would have made us happy. Sometimes, we may just need to take a risk. How willing are we to take that risk? How do we know? What helps us decide? Doubt and uncertainty are part of the process. Perhaps we need to accept that sometimes we don’t and cannot know. Perhaps we need to embrace uncertainty in order to get comfortable in its presence. Perhaps it’s about having an acceptance between knowing and not knowing. Then we don’t fear and agonize over the choice when we come to a fork in the road. Perhaps it’s about learning to perceive the world and our lives as a blessing unfolding.
Every day is a series of moments . Each one presents an opportunity – an opportunity to be kind; an opportunity to be thankful; an opportunity for laughter; an opportunity to be of service; an opportunity to try something new. The moments of opportunities are infinite. All opportunities can be life changers whether they are the kind that affect family, work, living situations or the multitude of moments throughout our day. What choices will we make? What risks will we take? What will lead us towards flourishing? Each one of us has to find our own answers, find our own path. If we find ourselves immobilized by uncertainty or fear, the solution is to take action , even the smallest of actions, do what we can do and let go of the outcome. We may not be able to control the outcome, but we can control and choose to enjoy the process.
