This is common knowledge. We're used to everyday items having expiration dates. That's why you don't grab the first carton of milk on the grocers shelf. You go a row or two back. It's ok, I've done it too. What we tend to forget is that opportunities can have expirations dates as well.
I've had the good fortune to learn from some exceptional individuals over the years. Recounting the experiences with friends would usually illicit responses like "I wish I could do that", or "someday....". For a lot of them, someday never came.
The world lost one of its truly unique individuals a month or so ago. I only was in his company a couple of times, and it was mere happenstance that I entered his orbit in the first place. I could have probably come up with 100 reasons not to attend the gathering that was our first meeting. What I didn't know was that when we met next we would have a conversation that I will never forget.
Take a chance now and again. Say yes. Don't let what could be great experiences expire on the shelf.
This weeks YouTube video was all about bikes for Christmas. I still believe it's the most memorable present that a child (or adult in some cases) can receive. If you'd like to check it out, click here. If you like the content please give the video a thumbs up, and consider subscribing. I do appreciate it.
Friday is Christmas. If you're lucky enough to be able to spend some time with family, or friends enjoy the heck out of it.
However you celebrate I hope you and yours are Merry and Bright.
