O is for Opportunity

I’m not a risk taker. I’m a stickler for the rules. I’m also very very wary of trying new things. So there’s many missed opportunities that I have passed by. I have the opportunity to learn new things at home, gather new skills and improve on the ones I do have, then try to get a better job somewhere that I will enjoy more. Do I do it? No. Am I lazy? Maybe. As an individual I guess during our life we have the opportunity to do a lot of things, but I stick to the rules I have learned from my parents, I feel I can’t leave responsibilities behind on others, so I don’t move out and get a place of my own. An opportunity in itself to increase my confidence, meet new people, get some real life friends and socialise. Do I do it? No. Even when i’m at work, or out with friends. “Miss your usual bus, stay here for a bit longer?” Do I do it? No. I need to stick to a routine schedule. Or so I tell myself. Do I need to? No again. So there’s the opportunity for a lot of things, and I don’t take them. Maybe I just need to learn to change, one small step at a time.
