Too true.
They don't drop in one's lap either - but they are all around to see if one is alert.
I hope I'm forgiven for having got the letter wrong this week!

Love it!

Very true. In fact, Opportunity seems to go around wearing one of those fake Groucho Marx glasses/nose/mustache things.

Nice opportunity :)

I'm sure it doesn't hurt if you get off your butt and look for them, although I rarely do. (get off my butt)

Ouch...I'm not used to having to think about anything. I have the summer blahs, now I will have to ponder your quote.

It's a good thing they aren't labeled as my eyes would have to get up close and squint to read them...lol! I'd much rather have them come knocking on my door.

I'm in a silly mood tonight...tee hee! :0)

Very true! I wish opportunities were labeled. It would make life so much easier!

That must be why some people have such a hard time recognizing them.~Ames

So true - if I had been more aware of opportunities...so many I just didn't recognize.

Gattina said...

True ! in fact I can't remember to have seen a labelled opportunity !

Cathy Kennedy said...

What a true statement! You have to look closely to see that an opportunity has presented itself most often, usually if it announces itself then I'm usually like this is too good to be true kind of thing, you know. lol.

By the way, be sure to check out my very first post link. I've passed something on to you....=D

So true! We have to really keep our eyes open for them.

Definitely something to think about.

Love your quote you shared on opportunity and everyone's comments on opportunity too. I have an opportunity that's presented itself to me...now I have to decide if I run with it :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
