Amid the noise it can be difficult to locate the doorway of opportunity.
And when we do, often the doorway to opportunity is different than what we thought it might be.
A little more delicate or subtle than expected, or outright intense. Heartbreaking even.
Opportunities disguised as ‘matters of the heart’ can be tricky to navigate.
This is because it is not usually recognized or received as an “opportunity” at first. And why should it be?
We need time to feel and understand certain situations and events that arise in our lives. We need processing time.
Time to feel mad, sad, angry or scared before we can view it as an opportunity.
During emotional and mental processing, the brain doesn’t quickly shift to “opportunity”. It needs time to weigh things. Collate them. To sort through the events, the conversations. To try on the alternative ways things could have played out. To listen for how the body really feels.
And when it’s time, when the heart and mind have come to an agreement on how to proceed with the situation, with the event, then maybe, just maybe we can see it as an “opportunity” for peace of mind. Even growth. Further travel into the brave and colorful landscape of understanding and acceptance. Perhaps even gratitude.
Some of the most amazing and life-changing opportunity happens within the heart and soul.
It just takes time and a different perspective. A bird’s eye view.
There is so much adventure, more than you ever thought possible, when you travel “within”.
Getting to know who you truly are allows you to find and open the doorway to opportunity.
Sometimes it takes expert guidance to help navigate.
