Beauty and opportunity abounds if we are open to it. Usually, opportunity takes work, but we need to spot one before going after it.
And if we're blinded by whatever we're busy with at the moment or what we're planning to achieve later, that's going to be difficult.
Also, we need to be mindful of people around us. Taking charge of your life will turn you into a dynamic person. And certain people will try to use you as a free ride of some sort. Although I'm all for helping people, there's also a point at which we need to say no. (But that's for tomorrow's post.)
Keep your mind open, though. Help where and when you can. But only when you know you can help.
Mainly though, open eyes are tools to get you through life. You'll see who of your loved ones need you. Or what you need to go to get to the next phase in your life. They show us the lessons we need to learn from mistakes. They help us live consciously doing things for a reason. Things that add value to our lives.
Without them, we'd be stuck wasting our time on the meaningless again.
Please let me see what You want me to see. Help me to see the opportunities you send my way. Help me to see at least a little bit of Your plan so that I know where You want me to go next.
I pray this in Jesus's name.
