Attitude is everything.
Everything happens for a reason.
There are no coincidences in life.
When Opportunity knocks, She doesn't care if your house is messy, if your dishes are undone, or if your laundry is in a crumpled heap on top of your (unmade) bed. She expects you to answer, invite Her in, and make Her feel welcome. You can choose to not answer for fear of judgement, or answer in spite of your shortcomings. If you ignore Her too many times, She'll stop knocking.
I'm trying to answer in spite of myself.
I'm folding laundry, by the way.
