There are many opportunities out there. When something we have been working on does not succeed, other opportunities will appear. Often the new opportunity ends up better than the original focus. When one door closes, another opens.
This morning I completed a half marathon (21.1 kilometres) in perfect cool and overcast conditions.
Running with hundreds of other people, all sharing the same goal of reaching the finish line was joyful and motivating. Beating the challenges of a 6:30am start, running up hills and making it to the finish line is much easier when there are other people to run with.
