Opportunity is all about how we look at it.
Sometimes we may feel like we’ve become stuck in a monotonous routine with our work, and we forget to take time out to play, and to enjoy the little things life has to offer.
Sometimes we think, This is it. This year I’m going to plant that garden I’ve always wanted to start. But maybe we put it on the back burner because other things seem more pressing.
Life can become overwhelming for everyone at times. It’s so easy to get caught up in our jobs, our homework, our bills, our shopping lists, our errands, our chores, and yes, even our TV programs. But how often do we get caught up in ourselves?
How often do we listen to that inner voice that says, “Hey, that sounds like it’d be a lot of fun. I’d like to try that sometime…”?
Following through with our personal goals, no matter how little they may seem, can make a big difference if we look at it from the right angle.
Think about it.
When was the last time you did something just because you wondered what it would be like?
Because you just wanted to open a new window of opportunity, unknowing what other windows may spring open as a result?
Because you just felt like you deserved a little break to relax and enjoy something new?
Because you wanted to share an interesting and rare occasion with your child, grandparent, partner, co-worker, pet, spouse, classmate, or other companion?
Because you simply couldn’t remember the last time you felt the urge to dive, carefree and head first, into a unique experience?
Because you wanted to make a new memory, or even a new friend?
Because you just needed a healthy dose of wisdom?
Or just because you knew you owed it to yourself to make sure that tomorrow, you’ll be more enlightened than you were today?
We only have so many days.
Let’s make them count.
Let’s make a vow to each other right now, and declare that from now on, when we make a list of things we have to do, we will begin them like this:
1. Embrace all the joy and wonder that awaits you.
May you always have the spirit to cross the first item off your list,
