Here’s what’s posted today on PeauxeticExpressions.com #ForesightFriday
Yesterday I was having a conversation with a female coworker and friend about expectations of dating. She was recounting a conversation she had with a man the night before. He said that it’s the woman’s role to somehow “trap” the man and his attention to get him to commit to her. She feels like the woman’s job is to bat her eyes, switch her hips or whatever subtle hints to gain the man’s attention or active pursuit. But it’s ultimately up to the man to “trap” her. Although the context of the “trap” was used loosely in their conversation, the gist of the idea is so true. Just like dating, we have to catch those “trapping hints” in every facet of life.
Maybe it is that special woman or man you’ve been wanting for so long. But what about that new job we want? That new business we procrastinate to start up? The chance to further our education? The opportunity for spiritual enhancement? Or even something as simple as the chance to truly relax and enjoy your own company (I know, strange concept….)? Honestly, there are many hints being dropped along the way to capture these desires and make them our own. But are we paying close enough attention? Sometimes we miss the boat to get us to our destination because we’re waiting on the titanic sized cruise ship to wisk us away. For some of us, we realize that as time continues to pass so do our opportunities. It may seem as if everyone around us is getting what they want out of life, except for us. But could it be that we had that same invitation but abruptly declined it?
Chances go round for all of us. The tricky part is we never know when that destined chance will come back again. Or, even more frightening, if it ever will. There are times where we only have one shot and if we miss it then it’s just another “sorry for your bad luck” moment. Nothing in life comes freely and even those things that do have a hidden cost that most people are probably not willing to pay. It is free to be alert though and pay attention to your surroundings to set your “trap” for life. Paying attention has to then be couple with action or it’s useless.
So what opportunities are being thrown your way? Are you letting them wiz by your head without attempting to get them? You may miss the mark at times or not grasp them all at once. But one thing is for sure…..you’ll never “trap” (and keep) what you’re not willing to put in the work for to catch.
