My quotes for today are focused on opportunities, I tossed around the idea of doing movie quotes today but then came across these and just knew I wanted to use them.

Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along. ~Hugh Allen

Nothing is so often irretrievably missed as a daily opportunity. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. ~Milton Berle

Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the one you miss. ~Author Unknown

A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties. ~Harry Truman

Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending. ~Author Unknown

Well these don’t really need my thoughts I don’t want to take away from them. Opportunities are wonderful things and every day of our life we have opportunities come to us but it’s really our choice whether or not we take the opportunity thrust in our path or if we try to step over it and not take it.

Do you take the opportunities that are given to you or do you let them fall by the wayside and hope an easier way may come? Not all things are meant to come easily in fact those things we work harder for will seem like more of a reward in the end (that is my own personal quote LOL)

    I try to prayerfully take the right opportunities that come my way. I don’t ever just say YES without first praying about it and seeing where this next “step” may lead…and sometimes steps that seem to be “opportunities” fail {even ones that I pray about} but, I think that the opportunities we take all lead us to where we belong eventually. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great quotes!! I especially like the one that says if no opportunity knocks, build a door!! I almost used that one myself!! It’s amazing to think of all of the missed opportunities in our lives!! Here’s to no more missing opportunities, but to seizing them instead!! I’m going to go do my Sunday Quotables post now!!!

    I’m with Jennifer. That’s an excellent quote. It leaves no room for excuses and encourages me to do what I can instead of get frustrated with my inability.

    Happy Sunday to ya!
