Sometimes They Come Back
I was watching this movie about a couple of kids who died and had an opportunity to come back to life. They had no ambition and no ideas for a future when they died. When they came back they had ambition, they had an agenda, but it wasn’t good. They decided that since they had one more shot at life they would torture and create havoc to all of the people they didn’t like before. What a horrible way to use a second chance. In real life, people have actually died and have gotten another chance at life. People have in one way
or another missed opportunity but got a chance at revisiting that missed chance. Some opportunities come only once, like winning that last basketball game that would get you historically recognized, or a chance to make a situation right before going to that final destination. But there are times when opportunities come back…Yes, sometimes they come back. I read a story about a lady who as a young girl who had gotten the opportunity to go to college. This was an exciting time for her; but after a few semesters, her father demanded that she stop attending because of his disapproval of what she might become and his idea of her ruining her chance of having the life “he dreamed of” for her. She ended up getting married, having children, and then divorcing. After about 60 years she embraced the chance to go back to the college at which she originally started. She went on to earn a BA degree in 2002 at the age of 87 and was honored with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. She was the oldest graduate in the history of the college. Her name was Anne C. Martindell. At the age of 90, she went on to write a book called “Never Too Late: A Memoir”. <—–Click the image to the left to get a copy of it She got involved in politics and did many other things she wanted to do. You can read more about Anne Martindell here. Never let anyone tell you that opportunities only come once. If you are determined, and full of ambition, go after what you want, go hard after your dreams. If you ever feel like you’ve missed an opportunity, remember that “sometimes they come back”. Just don’t give up. Thank you for reading my post. Hope you enjoyed it. Please like, Tweet, & repeat. Come back for more on The Daily Grind.
