Opportunities (Almost Wordless Wednesday)


“We are so attached to our way of life that we turn down wonderful opportunities simply because don’t know what to do.”

          – Paulo Coehlo

I almost didn’t go on the Camino. The fears almost beat me a dozen times, and they succeeded in delaying me for years. I didn’t know how to pack, how to travel in another country, how to speak another language. I couldn’t imagine sleeping in a room full of people, or how my cat would survive at home without me.

But eventually, the need to go was stronger than the gravity that kept me in place. And when it was time, I figured out what to do. And it was, indeed, wonderful.

What opportunities are calling you in 2017? Where will your own arrows point you?
