“Life holds no promises as to what will come your way. You must search for your own ideals and work toward reaching them. Life makes no guarantees as to what you’ll have. It just gives you time to make choices and to take chances and to discover whatever secrets that might come your way. If you are willing to take the opportunities you are given and utilize the abilities you have, you will constantly fill your life with special moments and unforgettable times.” – Dena Dilaconi
“If you are willing to take the opportunities you are given and utilize the abilities you have…” In some ways, I think that we could whittle down the search for a happy, fulfilling life to these words. Life gives us a great deal of opportunity, but are we willing to accept it? Are we willing to use the abilities that we have to make our lives brighter and happier? Or do we back away from using them because we might then face the unknown or the unexpected?
