Crisis and Opportunity…

Opportunity is always present in the midst of crisis

The Chinese word for crisis carries two elements, danger and opportunity. No matter the difficulty of the circumstances, no matter how dangerous the situation, … at the heart of each crisis lies a tremendous opportunity. Great Blessings lie ahead for the one who knows the secret of finding opportunity within each crisis.

I read this last week and have found it very interesting to think about and share in conversation. I have been thinking about scenes from my own story and considering where and how times of crisis were perhaps also filled with opportunity. Some of those I had been aware of, but some are coming clear as I reconsider those situations….

I wonder about your scenes of crisis. Are you able to identify the opportunities that lie within? Perhaps you are living out something today that feels more bleak than hopeful. Consider taking a look at the situation from a new angle, perhaps could there be some hidden blessings of opportunity? I do believe that there are times when we may not see that opportunity for a very long time….

I really like this Chinese symbol…and IF I was up for a second tattoo, I might consider this as a reminder, but I am not, so I will just come back to my blog to read it when I need a reminder!
