Some quick food for thought for you on this beautiful Thursday afternoon.
As I was rushing out of my apartment today my vitamins caught my eye. I hadn’t taken them in a few days so I decided to pop a few in my mouth.
As I swallowed fish oil and Echinacea I thought to myself “the vitamins are right there, you just have to take them.”
It seems so simple, yet I take my vitamins only a couple times a week.
I think that is true about life as well. Except in life, the vitamins represent opportunity and experience.
I skip my vitamins because I am “so busy and forgot”, and lets be honest, they taste like shit. In life, I have skipped opportunities because I “didn’t have time”, because it “doesn’t seem worth it”, or because I “didn’t feel like it”.
In reality, how hard is it for me to stop for one second in the morning to open my jar of vitamins and take a few out?
Vitamins, but more importantly opportunities present themselves to us each day. We must slow down and make time to take our vitamins. To accept opportunities, in turn allowing ourselves to make the most of life.
Ask yourself. How hard is it to take one day, or even an hour out of our whole lives to swallow our vitamins, to take a chance, and to accept opportunity into our lives?
