The In-Between


the ‘gray area’…that place of the unclear. the undefined.

black and white are clearly defined.

but when the two become one, gray appears.

Funny, Isn’t it?

that this is where some people choose to live their lives

the in-between…

but is this where we really want to lead our future generation?

7 Tips to Recognizing Opportunity


When opportunities come knocking on your door, do you answer? Or are you trying too hard to open a closed door, when it’s not yours to open?

How sad it would be to miss an opportunity that could have changed your life for the better. As I get older I am learning to take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way. Sometimes they don’t always turn out the way I expected but at least I know and move on to the next.

But how do we know when it’s a good opportunity or when to pass it up?

There are some people who just seem to attract opportunity like a magnet. And then there are others who can never catch a break. Opportunities are like a glove. When a good one comes along and you try it out for size, it will feel like a perfect fit.

Below are a few pointers which might help in recognizing a good opportunity.

It will help you grow personally in your ethics.

With every opportunity comes challenges. If a particular opportunity will help you grow in your principles and values, it might be a good fit. Nothing should ever come between you and personal core values of life.

It will promote more ideas.

Many opportunities can leave you stuck in a rut with nowhere to go. Look for those opportunities that can lead you to more ideas and growth. If it has no room for improvement and moving forward to bigger and better ideas, it might not be the right one for you.

It boosts your confidence.

A great opportunity will leave you with an energy for a better productive you. Great opportunities can be identified by a defined purpose.  It shows promise and becomes personal.

It continues to present itself to you often.

If an opportunity continues to show up at your door, take notice. Take advantage of it and see where it takes you. It may be one of your many answered prayers.

Your gut feeling is ‘regret’ if the opportunity is passed up.

Sometimes we are faced with making decisions with a mixed feelings and emotions. If you feel you would regret not taking the opportunity, then it might be worth the risk and stepping out of your comfort zone.

If the door is difficult to open.

Many times we may see an opportunity and think it is open for the taking. If it’s difficult getting your foot in the door no matter how many attempts is made, or if the door is difficult to open; it might not be your time. And it might not be your opportunity. Just move on to the next door.

You must be avid in your pursuit.

God will supply you with the opportunity but it’s your decision on what you do with it. You must have the desire and enthusiasm to be looking for every opportunity and passionate about getting results.

I hope these are helpful when looking for that next opportunity.

Just remember these two important questions.

Is it the right time?

Does it agree with my core principles and values?

Every day given is a

day of opportunity.

To Spike or Not to Spike


When I was in high school, I played volleyball.

Professional volleyball players are able to spike the ball at a speed of 75 miles per hour.

Me? Not  so much.
