"If opportunity doesn't knock build a door."- Milton Berle
I thought I was intelligent.
After 30 years of earthly existence, only then I realized I was not. For a few measures, YES, maybe. But mostly, I don't think so. Looking back and counting my blessings, the few measures I was wise enough are decisions that are more than good enough. So yeah, I was happy.
But then there's these not good enough. The things that ripped off my confidence and made me struggle more than I should have. No, I'm not blaming anyone. It was me. My unwise decisions. Letting go of opportunities, which I had in many ways. So lucky the heavens thread my path with chances. But fool that I am, lost them instead.
Am not saying that I no longer have my chances now. Still have many of them. Then, only now did I realize that I was not so good in looking out for opportunities, or counting my blessings. I don't know it's a good one until it was gone. It was hard enough when you're not really intelligent as you think you are, but with self esteem below where it should be - disaster.
So I thought I'd remind myself that if I think there was no opportunity for me... I'll build one.
What do I really want to say here?
It's THAT - no matter, whatever, as long as I know where I am going, even when the road's not clear, even when I do not have the resources, even when I'm alone, even when I'm stripped off of everything - I can do it. I must do it. I must FIND a WAY.
