“Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.” -William Arthur Ward
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” -Milton Berle
This morning, my day off, I woke up early and was wide awake. I has a choice, go back to bed and most likely just lay there or get up and take advantage of an opportunity to enjoy a long morning. I got up and it felt great, not only for me but for my dog Luna as well. The first thing I did was make fresh coffee and then Luna and I went on a nice walk to start off the morning. I came back got some house chores done and now I’m starting on my to-do list when normally I would still be sleeping. One last shoutout to my new creation of an over-easy omelet I made for breakfast this morning, two eggs inside a blanket of egg whites and veggies, yum!
This wasn’t life changing but it still felt great and it’s a good reminder to make the most of opportunities. This can come up in my different aspects of your life whether it’s a new job, hobby or lifestyle. There is never a good time to be stagnant. No matter how my life is going, it is important to still be open to and desire growth and possible change in my life. An ever adapting mind and body will help in the good times and the bad. So whether an opportunity presents itself to you or you go and build that door as the quote above says, go for it and try to live a most meaningful life.
Item 106 of 360+
Today’s item is my Jake from State Farm khakis. These bad boys served me well but they are thinning out a bit and I have to watch out for catastrophic failure. When I was in high school, I had similar pants and one day I bent over at my locker and ripped my pants. This wasn’t just any rip either, it was a HUGE rip, so embarrassing lol. My Dad or Mom came and picked me up from school and went with me to get pants. Once again, some of life’s biggest embarrassments really are funny stories later on. I still remember awkwardly sitting in the Dean’s office with no crotch left in my pants… You can’t make this stuff up lol. Enjoy your Friday everybody!
