#TBT: Opportunity.

Today, my “to be thankful” focuses on opportunity. It is not something tangible or whimsical, in some ways it is not quantifiable also – because I feel like there are moments when it gently glides by without notice. 

I am thankful for all those opportunities that I missed. Weird. Getting to write this, I am a mob feels individual so I tend to see things under a different lens. A feeler’s lens. Yes. For those that I have missed. Why. Because the truth is they always come back full circle, only this time you get to recognize what you probably wouldn’t have earlier.

I am thankful for all those opportunities that I was aware of. Tehehehe, I am thankful that I got to realize them because in that moment I was present. Checked in to today. To that moment. 

Ah! Opportunity, I hear some say that you have to be created, not waited for. My secret belief is that you present yourself… Totally dressed for the occasion: whether it is overalls, the smell of coffee, the birth of an idea, the note that turns the music timeless, the toothless grin of a toddler, the appreciation of ruthless boss, the approving glance from a father, the bible verse that changed your outlook…

Be present &a recognize how opportunity has presented herself. 

#TBT: God.

No, this is not Throw Back Thursday – Lol! No, this blog’s #tbt stands for To Be Thankful. It is so easy to go through life: the ups and downs, and not take a breath to just realise where you are. Realise, who is around you. Realise where you have come from: both physically and emotionally. Realise, just how much of the journey you have already completed.

For my first #tbt, I am thankful for God.

The ever silent companion, I lie, he is not always silent, truth is he speaks but I am not to keen to listen in all the time. I just wake up when I prefer to think that it is his cue to take.

His relentless love that is told about in the scriptures and that I see in the lives of those around me. I love his reach for mercy and his outpouring of grace. I love that his wisdom can not be comprehended and also that there are times when he is abit of a rascal.

No. do not throw stones at me just yet. Let me explain:

I have found that God is in the habit of doing things his way, and that when you finally have that aha moment, you realise that he is smiling or laughing, and you just cannot help but join in with him.
