Life can be generous by offering what you did not look or ask for. It can bring to your door what others have to constantly hunt, and ease the path on the mere rhythm of your footsteps. However, it can also be challenging by requiring you to find existing opportunities by yourself. And if once guided by the perfume of a temporary occasion, the passing fish will be for you to catch.
Life can also be inspiring by asking you to generate what is apparently nonexistent, and create opportunities with what is practically available. Provided with a random set of circumstances, it will be up to you to make the best out of them. After all, the best puzzled pictures were basically scattered pieces of no particular use, waiting to be combined in a constructive way.
Whenever you miss an opportunity, do not waste your time grieving, you will miss the following one. Whenever you feel that life has closed its doors on you, think of yourself as water and find a way to keep the circuit moving. And whenever you look forward to see things coming, remember to focus enough on the present and seize the opportunity.
Paul M. Klimos
