“William Blake once wrote: “There are things that are known and things that are unknown. And in between, there are doors.”


There will be hundreds, if not thousands of opportunities that will come your way in your lifetime. Whether or not you choose to accept these opportunities is up to you. I have come to learn that opportunities don’t always come to you, sometimes you have to make your own opportunities. If you stand around waiting for things to happen, life is gonna fly by and for all you know, you could be missing out on the extraordinary. Now, this isn’t to say not to believe in fate & chance, because I too believe that what is meant to be will be. But, on the other hand, I believe that fate & chance need the influence of “effort” from you, in order to happen… because I believe in hard work. Life isn’t just going to hand you everything you need, you need to put a little work into it, and then it can reward you greatly.

Take chances and opportunities, while you are still young enough to take them… Because one day you could forget what its like to be the age you are now; and you never want to wonder “what if.” You want to look back and have stories to tell, have pictures become old photographs, and have dreams become your reality. So right now, if you are waiting for something…is there anything you can do to make it happen? Don’t wait for the universe or fate or chance or whatever you believe in, to grant your every wish. If you want something go after it because right now, these moments are happening and life…it is happening too.





So, if opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.

  1. Kelly! These are so great, this is just what I needed to read to help me get through a long night of studying, papers and 2 big projects! ❤

  2. Kelly, i am so proud of you. You are an amazing, beautiful young lady. i know you think I have to say that because I am your mom but you have such special gifts in your writing, your personality and in who you are. You have always been so loving and compassionate to people especially less fortunate. You are also very optimistic something I wish I was more of.

    I have something for you to think about…..think of all the opportunities as stepping stones. Each time you step on one or follow a path, you are creating your life’s events. Each stone you step on or the path that you take creates more of the person you are. I am who I am thanks to all the wonderful people who have come in and out of my life. I don’t regret one relationship or heartbreak because I have been touched in some way by that person or relationship. Obviously, the positive relationships are more powerful and meaningful to me. I still have many stepping stones to “jump on” ahead of me and I intend to keep pushing forward no matter what. I hope you will do the same. I am so blessed to have you along side of me as I “jump” onto the next stone. Remember, I am always here to help get you get back onto the right path or back on your “stone” if you fall off. 🙂
    Love you! Mom
