“How beautiful life would be if only we lived every day with the hope of a chance meeting, a possible opportunity, or a serendipitous moment of gratitude.” Every day in our lives, there exists innumerable possibilities, numerous chances that may come at once and turn around the direction of our lives. Chances come in the form of opportunities, thoughts, work, people, events, memories, and so much more. They can be good, bad, or anything in between. But one thing is certain; chances play a vital role in the journey of our lives.
As you look back on your journey, how many times can you remember when something happened just by chance, and today, it has become a defining factor in your life? Our lives can never be completely predicted. But that is also the beauty of these chances — they leave room for surprise and allow us to be excited as we take on this roller coaster ride called life.
Life gives us umpteen chances, but sometimes, we need to be the ones giving life a chance as well. Maybe you want to start your own business, or perhaps wish to become a writer, aspire to travel the world, or want to start a new relationship — whatever it is that you dream of, it always deserves a chance. And in that uncertain moment, where your heart is racing, and you have the energy to take over the world, lies your opportunity to give life a chance.
Yet chances can be negative sometimes. They may bring pain and trauma. In such situations, we may feel bogged down and restless, and it may leave a scar on our lives forever. While this happens, it is important to care for ourselves, seek support whenever possible, and try to give life another chance to turn the situation around. Here are some chance quotes that may inspire you.
