Thanks to technology there are so many more opportunities available for us today. For example, being a blogger gives me the opportunity to reach out to any English reading person on the planet with access to the internet. That’s a lot of people.
When I started this blog on April 8th of this year, I didn’t tell anyone about it. I was in the middle of figuring out the features and wanted to wait until I clearer on what I was doing before sharing my news. Well, people I didn’t know, living in countries I’ve never visited, read my blog while I was experimenting. That was an eye opener and it was an amazing feeling to know that I, a woman, who has left middle-age behind and living in a small town in the United States, have the ability to attract an international following. I’m in awe.
It works both ways. I am following like-minded bloggers from around the globe. People I have never met in person and probably will never meet. It’s easy to sit at home thinking you are alone in your way of thinking, but thanks to the internet you can find like-minded folks to have a connection. I have more confidence in myself, my ideas and my beliefs. This is an unexpected bonus.
Thanks to recent technology we have the ability to connect the world. Thinking about this stops me in my tracks for a moment or so while I absorb this information. The whole world is wide open to us; like it never has been open in known history. Isn’t it amazing to be part of this phenomenon?
The word opportunity is the key here. A person can remain the same, do the same-old-same-old, or they can seek out new challenges. Opportunity is what we personally make of it.
Your opportunity doesn’t have to be as simple as mine – starting a blog. We are all faced with different opportunities; the question is “Do we take it?” If you want to expand your horizons and the opportunity before you is a positive step toward your ultimate goal – go for it…if you dare.
If you are willing to share, I would love to hear about the opportunities in your life that you have chosen to take on or ignore.
Life is good! God is great! All is right in my world!
