Missed Opportunities

Missed Opportunties

This morning, the Full Moon was setting over the mountains that were just getting the first rays of morning sun illuminate their tops.  It was amazing.  I had a beautiful view just as I was ready to pull out from our neighborhood onto the highway but there were power lines on the other side that I didn’t want in the photo and if I drove into that neighborhood to take the photo I might get stuck waiting for traffic as I would have to turn left across the oncoming traffic.

I decided to venture further as I felt that I would find a better spot somewhere along the route into the office.  I kept looking around the next turn to see if it would again show it’s glory that I could capture on camera.  It never happened.  Had I been able to share, it would have looked somewhat like:

It was a simple reminder that we don’t always get second opportunities and it may take effort, but to not make the effort could result in missing the chance.

Don't get same moment twice


So today I took a chance to see if I could possibly get one of the airlines to possibly provide me and airline ticket.  I found you can apply for ‘sponsorship’ from an airline.  I sent my proposal to Qantas and New Zealand Air.  The worst that can happen is that they say no and I still have to purchase a ticket somehow.

I’ve already said I would work out every day. I have.  I felt I should start a blog.  Did that and blogging. I need a ticket to get to the race:  It will happen.

astound ourselves

I will not miss this opportunity unless I am stopped by something bigger than my desire.


Wilma,  Had to run errands at lunch.  I did walk the dogs when I got home, did planks, squats, upright rows and presses and push ups.

Love Betty

  1. I think it’s impressive that you took on the challenges – offering to train long distance, considering Raw Challenge as a viable option, pursuing sponsorship, and sticking with it every day. As the Aussies would say, “good on you, mate”. Looking forward to doing the obstacles with you, and to the drinks afterwards. Miss those margaritas
