I have it in my notes. It’s written there scheduled for the 15th, but this isn’t the 15th it’s the 4th. Opportunities!
As I focus this year on Create – every day, I have it written:
I want to create opportunities
What does that mean? We are often given opportunities, but how are they created? Is it just something that happens to happen? Can it be made to happen?
I’m not sure where I was going with that word, but it seemed right to put the word on paper. Am I going to make opportunities for my son to experience new things and to grow in wisdom and responsibility?
Do I want to give opportunities to others, to make a way for them to stretch and grow and reach in directions they haven’t turned to before?
Am I going to make opportunities for myself and this space? Will I put myself out there in a way that new things appear on the horizon that had never been there before?
Opportunity – it is a word ripe with the unknown. Will I approach it with trepidation or an eager best foot forward?
What opportunity did I just give myself by forgetting to start the timer and guesstimating how much time is left of my five minutes?
Big thanks must go out to Lisa-Jo this morning as she has given me another opportunity and prompt to create. To reach out. To connect with you. Who knows what opportunity will come just by being faithful to an exercise that takes so little time, but has such big rewards!
