Life In General

Don’t Miss An Opportunity

My grandmother always said, be careful what you wish for, because it could come true. Well, she was completely right.

I have been given the opportunity to make a significant change in my life, do whatever I want to do and try something new. Many people see the negative in big life changes. But there is no greater time in my life to grab life by the horns and take advantage of new opportunities.

When one door closes, a window opens. Sometimes it’s a big window, sometimes it’s a small window, some times, it’s a whole new door. You just have to look for it. Nine times out of ten, your opportunity will not come racing to you. Keep your eyes open!

I’m not going to go into details, just to reflect on the fact that I’ve been given a lot of great opportunities over the years, met so many people, and have seen both the up sides and down sides of life. I am infinitely lucky right now to have Andy and his daughter in my life. I am grateful for the multiple small businesses that we run (NH Vinyl Guys, Seacoast Photo Booths, and My Country Story), even if a week ago I was complaining that we were doing too many things to think. I am grateful for my family who is always supportive and stays calm in rough situations. I am grateful for my friends who within minutes of learning the big changes in my life were there for me. I love you all.

My head is full of so many thoughts right now, but I think the most important one is that things could be so much worse than how they are right now.

I’ll leave you with this.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
– Winston Churchill
