This weeks WordPress weekly photo challenge is Opportunity.
What is an opportunity? According to Merriam Webster; An opportunity is a favorable juncture of circumstances. A pleasing connection at a point in time where a condition or event determines another.
My mind immediately focused on the many opportunities that present themselves each and everyday… more precisely missed opportunities.
How many opportunities have I missed? I hope not too many. I do try to think of others needs before my own. I am not claiming to be a Saint but I do try to live my life with JOY! Remembering to follow Jesus first and put others before myself. A life filled with JOY doesn’t have too many missed opportunities.
I believe that I have daily opportunities to reach my hand across the chasm of the unfamiliar and make a difference in one persons life. A genuine smile, a warm handshake, an available shoulder to lean on, a listening ear, a hand to hold and a genuine heartfelt conversation.
How many times a day do I pass by someone who for the smallest random act of kindness would change their day, their week, their life?
I do not think that I can interact with every person who crosses my path in a day but I can take the time to positively interact with someone.
For this weeks photo challenge I am submitting a music video.
How many missed opportunities are there everyday? How many times do we unconsciously make a positive impact in someones day just by our random acts of kindness? I hope the random acts of kindness out weigh the missed opportunities in all of our lives.
Slow down…take your time…look for…the next opportunity…to make a difference…in someones day!
Nothing is so often irretrievably missed as a daily opportunity. ~Marie von
