When you are presented with an opportunity what do you do?

A dream of mine is quietly and quickly coming true.   It is coming true based on my ability, interest, character and passion.  I know enough about myself to understand that I could easily wrap myself in this and become lost in it.  I have informed my loved ones about this and they have agreed to become spoilers when I get moving to fast or too far along (we all need spoilers.)

Hence the dilemma...  do I watch and see what becomes of this or do I grab on with both hands and become wrapped up in it  so tight that others may have to cut me loose if shit goes South.

I have weighed the pros and cons of this.  I know what is at stake.  I know what I have lost by not grabbing a hold of past opportunities. 

I also understand that my character would not have allowed success to happen in the past.  It would have been sabotaged by resentment and anger.  These are character flaws that I work through on a daily basis and thus far I feel as though I have been successful.

Life is too short not to take chances.  Especially when your character is on the line. 

I have the backing of my family on this one.  I know what I am doing and when I come across an issue I cannot resolve I also know that asking for help is not only an okay thing to do but it is expected.

I'll let you know how it goes...

  1. I generally go for opportunities. It doesn't always work out, but it works out more often than not and it keeps me moving forward. If you want to chat over coffee I would be game. I haven't seen you forever and I need to score some Girl Scout cookies.
