Do we get second chances for the things we truly want? What if we blew the chance of a lifetime, does that mean it wasn’t meant to be? We all have been threw moments in life that the very thing that we truly want is right in front of us and we let it slip from our hands. Whether it was the school we always wanted to get into, the job we always dreamed of or the person that was the perfect partner, somehow it just didn't seem to work out as you had planned. Is a missed chance really a blown shot or maybe the timing was just simple off? Ever hear the saying "timing means everything" ? Timing can also be thought of as fate. Sometimes the things that we think are right for us at that moment, are just not meant to happen yet. We may come so close to our dreams and fail, because we are simply not ready or the circumstances are not ready for us. Although we may think that most of life is under our control, it actually is not. There are always going to be circumstance that are not within our power to control no matter how hard we plan for them. We just may simply not be ready for what we want or may not have learned enough lessons in life to be ready for that type of success. Nothing in life is given to us until we are truly ready. If we miss a chance on something great because we were not ready, we then have to think about what was missing within us that the chance we took did not work out. Once we do some self-examination we can realize that it was just not right yet and most likely the timing was very off. If what we want in life is meant to happen, it will be back to us when we have bettered ourselves and our mindset is very positive. Second chances do not come to those who don’t believe in what they want, and have not worked to better themselves to prepare for it. The overall point is that if we blew a chance that we are meant to have, it will come back around as long we are being our best selves and the timing is right. Second chances only come to those that earn them and believe they deserve it. And sometimes, you may even get something better that what you tried for the first time around. Always, stay positive, work to be better than you were before, let go of regrets, give thanks for your current life and good things will come to you on your life path.
