How many times have I been in the right place at the exact right time and had the opportunity to do something great and missed it?  Maybe I should have gone over and sat with someone, or overheard a conversation, or ordered the right kind of smoothie from the man behind the counter, or worn red, or just not be so damned introverted. How many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities have I missed?  What if my life will be ordinary because I missed them?

But what if realizing this is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Maybe from here on out I will be brave, and do the incredibly difficult small things that we are challenged with everyday.  My life will be great because of all the opportunities I missed, not in spite of them.  The opportunities I don’t take are more important than the opportunities that I do.

My life will be memorable.  My life will be great.
