How many opportunities in life do we imagine getting to reach our dreams? 1, 2 or maybe more? Sometimes the really big opportunities drift pass you without showing you all they can be. But they are there none the less. Maybe it is not always opportunities but rather a decision to change the course of your life, which you know could be painful, but is needed if you are to be happy in the long run. Every decision we make has consequences in our future, both good and bad. But one thing we can never do is be paralyzed with fear about what we feel we should do. For that just speeds us along the road to nowhere.
My father used to tell me that I should never regret anything that has happened in the past. No matter where it takes you, he would say, it was the best decision for you at the time. I try to keep that thought with me always now that I am older. After a year and a half after my business failing I feel I have emerged from a cloud, that were self induced with doubt and self pity, to see the world in a better light than even before. I also see opportunity now, not because it was not there before, but because now my eyes are open again. I am looking in the right direction, forwards rather than behind.
