What is this blog about?

There is no such thing as an expert on the topic of Life. We all have had our battles, our suffering, and our questions. Despite the uniqueness of our personal obstacles, we have endured them. We have endured them well enough to advise those behind us as to how to do the same. I have done the research on your behalf regarding the multitude of reasons why wisdom exists. My mission is to utilize the voices of the world's greatest thinkers and heroes to compose a guideline of life's wisdom so that you don't have to experience those trials alone.

If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @JoeSielski or email me at JJSielskiJr@comcast.net

(Please title your email with the word "Wisdom" so I know it will be for this blog.)

I will do my best to try and answer every question as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thanks.

A Moment for Opportunity

Opportunity is knocking.
Can you hear it?

During our lifetime, on the course of this journey, there are many obstacles and opportunities.   

Sometimes the opportunity is very evident.  Sometimes it takes form as a mammoth storm.  Sometimes, it's just a whisper.   However they manifest, be vigilant for them.   Even the act of you reading this very paragraph in this exact moment is part of how your path was designed.  Smile.  Pay attention to that.  How can you utilize that knowledge?  Understand that your journey is specifically yours. 

There will be times where you and a friend could view the same opportunity differently, so remain aligned with your core being to know what is your path and not that of another.   Clearly paths intersect.  People are brought into our lives with purpose.   Sometimes we need to receive, and other times we are the givers.  "Let us be grateful for the people who make us happy.  They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."  [Marcel Proust]  Along those lines, there could be a day or opportunity where it is your responsibility to be the charming gardener for another. 

Every moment, every day is an opportunity.   You have the authority to choose how you want to live and how you want to occupy your time.  Because most of what life is is the privilege to experience time, all moments become an opportunity.  A full day can be an opportunity.  An entire year can be an opportunity.  And finally, your entire lifespan is your greatest opportunity.  How will you choose to use that opportunity? 

Opportunity is all around you.   Whether from obstacles or opportunity, how you choose to spend your time defines who you are.  The signs and symbols will come and go; they will appear and reappear.

Are you paying attention?

You are on this path for a reason.
Your path is what you make of it. 

Thank you for your time.
