The Opportunist

To seize the moment. To grab life by the horns. To make lemonade out of lemons.

To eat ice cream because it’s good, and tumble and fumble and play because I can.

To LIVE — doggonit.

Because out of the countless of stars and billions of people out there, there is me.

There I am. And simply because I am, I must live — Live like no one is watching and also as if everyone were.

I must.

Be the star.

Fill the space.

Achieve my full brilliance.

So when my time has come and I begin to fade,

I am comfortable and pleased with the contribution I made.


— Opportunity is not quite the right word for it.
