Opportunity

4 Jan

Lisa-Jo took a break from her 5 minute Fridays in December….but, now she’s back! Five minute Fridays are always fun, so why not jump in and tell us what you have to say?

The Gypsy Mama

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:

Opportunity…

**************************************************************************

Opportunity…a chance to do something.

Sometimes opportunity knocks and I am too blind to see it, or too busy.

I need to be more aware of the faint tapping.

Opportunity can open up a whole new world, one that I might never have known had I not opened that door.

Taking a chance can be scary, but not taking it might be worse.

Missed opportunity is a huge regret.

Don’t let it get away…

English: Ahem! Road sign and tree at Kirkbuddo.

    Good thoughts, Dawn.
    I did 5 minute Fridays for months, but, dropped it awhile back. I enjoyed the spontaneity practice. As a newspaper reporter I got lots of practice with insane deadlines. I’m praying about whether to take advantage of that opportunity this year.
