#AtoZChallenge : To Opportunity

Image source: Pixabay
Dear Opportunity,
When I look back on the life that I have lived so far, I’m
glad that you have been with me or at least visited me from time to time. There
are times when I wonder what if you weren’t there in my life.  My life has been a series of your visits –
some expected, some unexpected. 
It is funny what we humans think about you. When you aren’t
around we look for you and when you are there we fail to see you. They say that
you knock only once but I feel may be we don’t hear you often enough. An
opportunity to grow, an opportunity to change, and opportunity to become
better- all of us need these. But are we using enough of those? Many times we
often complain that you don’t visit us. But what about creating you? What about
using all the resources that we have to find you? When I was growing up, I felt
that I didn’t have a lot of opportunities and that I missed out on some- maybe
I did. But now when I think of it may be I didn’t work hard enough for those
opportunities, or may be those opportunities were just not meant for me because
the opportunities that I got were the best for me. May be we must all think of
it that way rather than complaining about it.
“Every morning brings new potential, but if you
dwell on the misfortunes of the day before, you tend to overlook tremendous
opportunities.”
Harvey Mackay
That quote is so
true. While we are busy looking for you, I think we should also remember that
we need to make way for you in others lives also. We need to give an
opportunity too- an opportunity to correct our mistakes, an opportunity for
improvement and opportunity to grow. How better a place the world could be if
we searched for you properly and made way for you in others lives too. I’m glad
that I have you. Thank you for all the times that you have been in my life. 
Gratefully yours,
Reema

I’m taking up the #AtoZChallenge and my theme is “A letter for a letter”. So make sure you read
all the letters from A to Z.

    So rightly said, that we often fail to hear the knocking of opportunity on our door because we are too occupied doing our own thing. Being considerate enough to gift opportunities to others we can surely make this world a more wonderful place to be.

    Loved your take on opportunity <3

    Thats beautifully put Michelle. Sometimes it's just that split second it takes to grab an opportunity for something special to come. But yes as you say making way for opportunities in others lives is something we need to look into.

    Beautifully said Reema! Sometimes even certain hard knocks are actually opportunities in disguise! Keeping an open mind to whatever comes your way is the best way ahead! Cheers

    Very true, we often ignore opportunity or are too scared to take it up. Love the quote too.

    I love this post. Opportunities are weird, it's something we've to work hard for and when they appear, we have to decide in the moment. Great post!

      Thank you Maggie 🙂

    According to me opportunity comes wrapped in a package that can only be opened by hard work. Exactly why most people refuse to see it.

    Brilliant post, Reema!

    1. reemwrites says:

      Rightly said Soumya!
      Thank you 🙂

    Yes opportunities aren't avisluable to those who simply wait, instead they are for those who creates the way for them
