Opportunity

I read a good book years ago that included the phrase ‘Everybody, everything, and all the events in your life are there because you have put them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you’.

Faith aside, this phrase and the book’s overarching message got me thinking… a lot. Those around us, what we do, who we interact with, outcomes of our actions, everything, is an action result of cause and effect. Whether it be ‘self’ free will, or bestowed free will, we have choices in our lives that will work to shape an outcome.

Let me bring this to the here and now. What choices am I going to make today to help shape a desirable outcome? Now, focus that same question to yourself. The desirable outcome doesn’t always need to be for ourselves, and it shouldn’t be anyway. We have the opportunity to help and serve others, each and every day. That alone is exciting.

Everybody, everything, and all the events in your life are there because you have put them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
