A Runner’s Alphabet—O Is for Opportunity
is for opportunity.
How easy is it to spot an opportunity?
Sometimes opportunities are pretty obvious. I’m taking advantage of a little time to squeeze in this blog between all my pre-holiday chores and before the Christmas Eve baking frenzy.
Sometimes we don’t even recognize an opportunity till after it’s vanished over the horizon. Or we recognize one but get scared.
Fear of opportunities was my special habit for a long time. I was afraid to try new things that would have made my life richer or more rewarding. It just seemed safer to hang back and stay with what was familiar, even if it made me unhappy in the long run.
O can also stand for open. Let your heart soften and be open to opportunities. I can tell you it does take practice, but I’m slowly gaining insight and finding a gentleness that maybe was there all the time. I encourage you to give it a try, in whatever part of your life needs to be livelier.
O can stand for a lot of other things: obvious, onward, outward. I encourage you to explore your own ideas.
Please feel free to send me any questions you might have. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
