Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.

So, I googled the word ‘opportunities’ this morning and this is what it said.

“Opportunities are a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something.”

When I read this, I automatically related opportunities with making life better. And when we say that we missed an opportunity, we missed a chance to make life better. Right or right??

Looking back, especially with my work history, there are a few things I could easily label as a missed opportunity. But, looking at my life now, I can see why things worked out the way they did. At the time, of course, the reasons weren’t so clear and I felt confusion, frustration, and even a little disappointed.

Byron Katie was quoted saying, “How did I know it was meant to happen this way? Because, it did.”

So, I challenge you. Let Byron Katie’s words inspire you to accept what is. Yes, sometimes we wish things could go differently, especially if that means going in our favor vs. not. Have Faith that someday, it will make sense and you will be so happy that opportunity, was a missed one.

Happy Tuesday, all!

xo, Sarah
