Opportunities abound, what can you achieve?

Opportunities come and opportunities go, but what do you do with them?

Maybe you think too much? Should I? Shouldn’t I? What if this? What if that?

Then the door is closed and you missed out!

What if you just leapt and said yes? It would save all that time wondering, thinking, over-thinking!

If you think back to something you decided against – like for example getting on a plane with someone you just met, all expenses paid, to see their country, because your head said that was irresponsible; or turning down travelling with a band as their route didn’t coincide with yours and that couldn’t be their real job… how long did you spend afterwards thinking about it? Okay these are far fetched examples, but just imagine what if!

Wondering how life would have turned out, places you would have been, people you would have met, more opportunities that would have presented themselves. Opportunities which you let slip away, but could have changed your future. Things like this, were great opportunities.

Treat every opportunity with excitement as it could always lead to bigger things!

Be careful with your time though – saying yes to everything and burning yourself out would be rash … but likewise, don’t say no because of someone or something you think might be in your way!

Go for it!

seize opportunity

    Love her or loathe her, Margaret Thatcher said never miss an opportunity but i think she mainly meant loo breaks lol?
    I try not to dwell too much on ” should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” but i have a long way to go! By the way, I love magnolia trees (re the quote at the end)?

      Eva! Lol at loo breaks! 😛 Tell me one of your should’ve, would’ve, could’ves?! … oh and while we’re talking about opportunities, where’s your clinical aromatherapy update! 😛

      Strange you only get the quote at the end, not the beginning.. although I guessed some people might which is why I added it again! 😛 Oh and I’m with you on the magnolia 😀

    There are too many to mention lol but the main ones are where I’ve trusted people who then let me down or I was a bit too naive… On a more comical note, my pancakes ended up looking like scrambled eggs- it was a bit of a fail this year?
    Re the course, I’ve seen it’s around £500 so I’ll have to start saving up (but tricky as I’m not working at the moment lol). I thought I was going to start working at a local salon in January but that didn’t go to plan… x

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 6th March 2019 at 20:43

      ?????oh no! How did they taste? We had pancakes for breakfast AND again after dinner! Ah, first rule – trust no-one!? Naivety comes from lack of experience… a.k.a. missed opportunities and we’re back we’re we started!?!? Well, how about everytime hubby wants a meal out you cook instead and he donates the money into your course fund!?✔️

    Thanks Laurena, life is always a learning curve☺ Re the pancakes I think I used too much soya spread and not enough batter to start with which may have given me that scrambled egg effect lol (it was a bit weird eating that with sugar and lemon!), hubby said the second one looked like a thick omelette but at least it was an improvement from there haha. That’s a good idea about the course fund, thanks?

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 7th March 2019 at 19:21

      Oh no Eva… how did you get from pancake batter to scrambled egg! ? What recipe did you use? Egg and lemon yum! 😛 ?

    It was an old Morrison’s one, now in the bin?
