Making Things Happen

Opportunity never waits to knock until it’s convenient for you.

When things happen — or wish to happen — it’s always in the midst of the muddle of the everyday.

The dishes still need to get out of the sink, the laundry has to be folded, those emails have to be answered, and on and on.

And yet. Sometimes, it’s time to put down the everyday routine and answer the call to adventure.

If it doesn’t feel convenient, or you don’t feel ready, or you don’t know how, you’re in good company: none of the great adventurers could see the end at the beginning, either.

And the truth is, you already know how to have an adventure. Even if you don’t know what you’ll see from the next peak, you know how to lace up your boots and take a step.

And another and another, till you see what you can see.
