The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity. – Lewis Grizzard
Today I was on the phone with one of my friends and she was talking about a situation that is going on in her life. It’s not an easy situation but as she was talking to me I told her there was an opportunity there for her in the midst of it all and she needed to take the opportunity.
Who knows why things happen the way it does, but when you can get an opportunity out of a sticky situation then I see it as a sign. As I’ve said before I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason. And when an opportunity comes I believe there’s an absolute reason for it.
The last piece of advice my cousin Lori gave me before she passed away was to “take the chances while they come.” I hold on to this advice and think about it often. I thought it was awesome advice before she passed away but when she passed away shortly after telling me that it gave it all a new meaning.
We only get this one life here on Earth and my cousin dying at a young age proved to me that we can’t waste our lives away not taking opportunities. My friend was telling me about her opportunity to make a change in her life while in the midst she has been going through a lot. And I just kept thinking that she owed herself that opportunity. She has been going through so much and for her to receive this opportunity seemed like it was in Gods plan and that’s what I told her too.
Every single one of us has opportunities out there, but so many people are scared to take them. We even stay in crappy situations just because we are scared to take the plunge. We are scared to leave our comfort. It’s hard not knowing the future and what will happen when you take up an opportunity, but trust me it’s so much better than staying in a miserable situation and thinking “what if?” all the time.
I’m telling you take amazing opportunities when you get a chance because you deserve it. You may think you don’t, but you do. You deserve to better your life and live it to the absolute fullest! You might be sitting here reading this thinking about an opportunity in your life and I just want to tell you if you have no one else encouraging you, I am! You got this! You are absolutely amazing and are going to do great things with the opportunities you take. So I dare you all to go out and make it happen!
Thanks for reading!
