Breeze of Opportunity

Hot air balloons are tricky to time just right. In order to take off the ground, the conditions for the day, hour and minute have to be perfect. It takes several people to fill this massive structure with enough air and then you have to wait until just the right moment. Sometimes, it won't even work on the day that you plan and you have to go back another time and try again.

However, when you get the chance, when you get the opportunity to ride high into the sky, boy oh boy what an adventure. The thrill of seeing the landscape below and the clouds becoming ever so closer. It is exhilarating.

While you are up on your flight, you are being tracked by a crew on the ground as to the direction the balloon is heading. Part of the fun is that your ultimate landing spot is left to be discovered.

Opportunities in this life are constantly brushing against us. They are the trade winds of this world. Not every breeze is the right one to jump on and sail away, the timing must be right, the conditions must be right. However, once we experience the leap off of the ground and start floating on our journey it is exciting, it is breathtaking. Even though our ultimate destination is unknown we try and predict to the best of our abilities, but ultimately we don't know.

Be thankful for a constant breeze, be ready to sail away and be excited for an unknown destination.
