Sunday Story…Take a chance
Today. And take a chance every day, if you can. We often say when our ship comes in we will do this or that. We will finally have the space, the time, the permission to do all those things we want to do. The chances we want to take.
The fact is your ship may or may not ever come in. The planets may not align. Mr. or Mrs. Right may never appear. The stuff that really changes you, that shifts your life is rarely the stuff you plan for, study for or schedule.
No, the stuff that really makes a difference arises out of the not knowing, the spaces between, and the time when it has no chance but to appear.
At that moment your job is to take the ball and run with it. Seize the moment and make it because you are ready for it. Waiting for the next opportunity is silly. The opportunity is presenting itself because you are ready for it.
It is said when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. When you are ready the opportunity will appear. Shrink and so will it. Be bold and go forth, courageously and you will be rewarded.
Fortune favors the bold…Virgil
