Prey passes the tiger who
Sometimes merely looks,
Sometimes pounces without hesitation,
But never fails to act.
Life is a constant series of opportunities and, admittedly, there have been times in my life where the timing was wrong, but also times and situations in my life where I just simply failed to act . Not because of timing, but more out of inability, due to fear.
Still, at my age, I am reminded that we must continue to reach out for things and fight for what we want and what we believe in. If we don't, then we cannot be in harmony with the essential nature of life. We must learn to engage and participate in somehow, and to take advantage of whatever or whoever comes our way, and to not be afraid whether the timing is right or not.
Opportunites lost because the timing was wrong I can live with. The one's that have passed by due to fear ... I cannot.
