Five Minute Friday: Opportunity

  • Posted on May 25, 2012 at 8:29 am

On Fridays, Gypsy Mama holds a blog carnival where we all stop and write for five minutes – no editing, no over-thinking, just write. Care to join us?

This week’s topic is: Opportunity.

I fell like I miss so many opportunities.  An opportunity to tell a friend I’m sorry for their loss, missed because I can’t quite find the right words. An opportunity to teach my kids some new truth or skill, missed because I’m too caught up in the everyday chores and the business of it all.  An opportunity to connect with my husband missed because we’re both buried in our technology.  An opportunity to see friends or family missed because I don’t think I can handle the travel with the kids, or because I think it might cost too much or be too stressful.  An opportunity to call and chat with a friend because I think too much time has past, or they might be mad at me for some unknown slight.

These things weigh heavy on me once I feel like I’ve missed them.  But I still do.  How can I be better at grabbing these opportunities when I see them, at not giving into my excuses and insecurities?

    I hear you, especially on the missed moments with my man due to screens and tech.

    May God ever be shifting our thoughts so that we may see with his eyes and act accordingly.
