OK, so it’s Tuesday, but I still wanted to play along with this week’s Sunday Scribblings writing meme. You can play along too by linking up through the image.
This week the word is “opportunity” and who can resist the opportunity to write about it? So many directions one could go with this, so many thoughts come to mind, so many opportunities to put words together and make something fun, interesting, thoughtful, insightful, whatever!
I’ve had this word in my vocabulary a lot the last few months, thinking about the future, wondering what God is preparing for me and me for. What opportunity will I choose, what chances will I be presented with and which one will be the best choice for me? With the state of our nation, it seems there are fewer opportunities to be found and fewer still that will actually be viable. I’m trying not to panic at the limitations and be hopeful that the right thing will indeed be there at the right time.
In the meantime, I’m writing here, trying to re-sharpen my skills and renew my sense of purpose. Maybe this will be important. Maybe it will lead to something. We’ll see! For now, I’m posting a new acrostic poem. This time I’m opening up the flow and going with phrases instead of just limiting myself to a single word per letter. Here goes:
Open your eyes
Plan for success
Put your best foot forward
Optimism is essential
Realize your true full potential
Take life by the horns
Unleash your wildest dreams
Never mind the nay-sayers
Intensify your effort
Teach by example
