Opportunity to travel, meet new people, see amazing things.
Opportunity to take risks. Or not.
Life is full of them, preceding every decision is an opportunity. I'm thankful for most of the ones I've taken. I almost passed up the chance to go out with my husband for the first time, what if I had said no? My career planted when I accepted a small job opportunity the summer I graduated from high school.
I regret some opportunities I passed up. Man, I wish I would have studied abroad during college, or gone farther away at least. And I could have gone sky diving a couple years ago, before husband, before baby.
Tonight -- no party, no cake, no singing. No crazy adventure. Just my husband and I taking the opportunity to have a nice dinner together. Ringing in '29' seizing some alone time and conversation. These days I'm finding more often than not that the greatest opportunity I have is to pass up others so that I can spend time with my family. Turning down the great opportunities of old often means I get to seize the greatest moments of all. Funny how that works!
