Thankful Thursday | TheMcBaileys.com

Oh my goodness I’ve skipped a full month of Thankful Thursdays. TURRRRIBLE. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thankful the entire time. It just means I went back to work {insert long audible sigh}. Which then means I go to work, I work my butt off, I commute home, I pick up the baby, eat some dinner, put the baby to bed, and then go to bed to start the whole cycle over again. I guess I never realized {because I didn’t have a child} how days can just flash before your eyes. I realized the other day that there have been some mornings I haven’t even seen the baby before Andrew heads out to drop her off at my mother-in-law’s. Time, it stops for no one.

This may sound like a weird Thankful Thursday, but today I’m thankful for opportunity. I’ve been given/earned so many opportunities in my life. Many of those may never have been available to others. Some opportunities I worked my tail off to achieve. And others, just down right luck. I’m finding that life is all about opportunity: creating opportunity, recognizing opportunity, declining the wrong opportunities, and seizing the right ones. Our entire life is based around opportunity, something I didn’t realize until I really sat down and thought about it {as well as started thinking about the opportunities around me}.

Each day we are given opportunities – they may be small, they may be large, but they are always present. As much as I complain about the paycheck place, they’ve given me so many great opportunities in my career. But I’m wondering is it time to seize another opportunity. Should I stay at home with my daughter? Should I try a little harder with Rodan+Fields? And in our personal life, should we move to a larger home? Should we relocate? I know that I’m lucky to even have the opportunity to entertain these “choices.” And for that, I’m truly thankful.

So today, Thursday, January 23, 2014, I’m thankful for opportunity. The good ones, the bad ones, and the ones in between. Because without opportunity, life would be a little boring and predictable, and that just doesn’t sound exciting at all now does it?

What about you, what are you thankful for this Thursday?
