Sometimes life is all about taking chances, big and small. I think about how many things in my life that wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for going out on a limb, and it makes me hopeful. Hopeful for the scary and difficult decisions that are ahead in life, that they may result in blessed and joyful experiences. Hopeful for friends who struggle to find the happiness they so desperately want, that they may find the courage to take chances and witness the beauty of the reward. Hopeful for the sadness and grief in life, that they may never disappear, but rather heal and leave us stronger. Hopeful for the unknown, that life may surprise us with the unexpected, the extraordinary, and plain and simple happiness.
This song makes me think of all of this, and more. When opportunity knocks, answer the door. Take chances. Take charge. Don't let your dreams pass you by. Have faith. And prepare to have the ride of your life.
