Opportunities don’t run up and hug us as we traipse down the alley of nothingness.
Opportunity has to find us doing, for it to turn up and when it does turn up, do we recognize it?
It comes in many forms and a whole lot of times, it may not come wrapped in a nice box with bows and flowers.
Do we stand in the way of our own progress with all the road blocks that we inflict on our path, waiting for an opportunity that will land in our laps while we sit on the rocking chair going back and forth and gossiping about the neighbour?
Sometimes, we have to push ourselves out of the rocking chair to get where we want to go.
