Opportunity

Opportunity is usually a matter of choosing to see events as such. Yesterday, as I was walking to work, I thought to myself, "Self, what a great opportunity this project has been for giving me a chance to walk nearly an hour a day instead of driving to commute." As I was reaching to pat myself on the back, another voice in my head chimed in.

It said, "How exactly have you not had the opportunity to park your car a mile or 2 from every place you've worked in the last 15 years and walk the rest of the way? You've ALWAYS had the opportunity to walk PART of the way to work. You just didn't see that as an opportunity."

Sufficiently chastised and humbled, I leaned forward and picked up the pace.
