Life sometimes hands us opportunities. Sometimes we have to work really hard to get them. Either way, when they come along, it's exciting. Even if we don't take them. Just to know that we could have done something is enough sometimes.
I have taken many and passed many. No regrets. Sometimes, though, I think about what I might be doing now if I had not passed on a few of them.
I always feel like I am where I am supposed to be; doing what I am supposed to be doing. But it is fun to take different choices from my past and then try to play it forward.
When opportunity knocks, at least give it the consideration it deserves and then move forward with conviction, either way.
Oh, and that little voice inside you? Listen to it. It's always right.
