five minute friday: opportunity

the first five minute friday of the year.  I'm busy watching sherlock {eeeekkkk!  only one episode left!}, home alone.  ahhh, and the word is opportunity!  ironic, no?  so as always, if you want to play along, the info is on the right - just click the badge!!  I'm going to hit pause on netflix at this super scary junction...five minutes.  GO!

go.

opportunity.  I have a lot of this, but never as much as I have at the start of the year.  or at the start of a new school year for that matter.  I forget this, however, when the business of life puts me in auto-pilot.  'cause you know it does.  the mundane.  the everyday.  the driving and the sports and making lunches.  the laundry and all the other stuff that just puts us into zombie mode.

but opportunity.  fresh, new, exciting opportunities can just shock us awake.  the new year can do this.  I'm not normally big on resolutions.  in fact, this year, I'm calling them revolutions.  a chance to start again.  change the way I do life.  the opportunity to start fresh.

I can choose to waste it or embrace it.  in the past, I've wasted many, many new opportunities to start agin.  and not just in the new year, but every morning.  every sunrise is an opportunity.  to do it again.  to do it better.  I'm going to take this one.  embrace it.  change it.  and start a revolution in my heart.

stop.

oooh, zombie mode. that could be bad. tempted to run with that illustration, but I'll let it go. I hear you here....may we recognize the potential of each day as a new beginning, not simply the ones that begin with "January"...
