Missed Opportunities

There’s nothing that I dislike more than a missed opportunity. Let’s make a pact, shall we? Let’s both commit to making the most of those open doors in our lives. Sometimes, they’re a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, others, an annual challenge (like NaNoWriMo).

They can also come disguised as a single moment in time – like the option to let someone get in front of you at the on-ramp of the highway.

Let’s promise to be kinder people, more open to change, and willing to lay aside all the distractions in our lives to pursue our better, more noble selves. Embrace the challenge to grow. It’s worth it.
