Opportunities knock very lightly

On a recent early morning run I realised that we are all surrounded by possibilities all the time, whether from ideas that pop up whilst running, from possible interactions with others, from hearing something, reading something, seeing something or feeling something.

We tend to miss most of these possibilities either from being too busy thinking, worrying or agonising over something else that's wirring around in our heads or because our minds are not tuned to receive possibilities.

Sometimes when we're hoping for something positive to happen, we already have a preconception of exactly what we want them to look like, and we therefore don't notice when they present themselves in a different guise, and they pass us by.

The best place to be to notice possibilities is in a place that's called openness and curiosity.

It's a bit like letting the clouds clear on a dark night to notice the amazing stars that litter the night sky. They're always there, it's just that most of the time we don't see them.
