I have been guilty at times of having a negative mindset around life direction. It can be so easy for us to just sit in a slump and feel like everyone else's life is looking fantastic, but ours is just, well, not so fantastic. It can feel lonely in this place, confusing and overwhelming to even think about making a change for the better. One thing I've learnt though, is that opportunities are everywhere.
Having moved cities recently, I've seen how powerful it can be to just get yourself out there and keep a look out for new opportunities. Not knowing anyone here, I was forced to get out of the house and talk to people, share what I'm doing, share my struggles, ask them questions, make new connections, try new things and just see what vibes with me and what doesn't.
We have an opportunity each morning to go out into the world with an open mind and see what it has to offer. We have an opportunity to authentically and honestly express what we are going through with others, with the high probability that someone will know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone else who can help. We have the opportunity to run head-on into our biggest fears, knowing that, right behind them, is usually where our truest desires lay waiting. We have the opportunity to seek out what we want, ask questions and discover what it is that truly brings us joy.
Within these opportunities, there are more opportunities and within those, even more.
Are your eyes open to what's around you, or are you letting your circumstances and emotions dictate your life? Your current situation is based on your own decisions, so if you're not happy right now, know that you have the power to change it and that opportunities are all around you.
