"It's your chance, embrace it."- CHANEL CHANCE Perfume
It's 11:00 pm on Tuesday. I'm at a local restaurant reading the March edition of Vogue magazine with Beyonce on the cover. I've been waiting for it to hit shelves and finally my local Barnes and Nobel had it in stock. As I'm flipping through its pages, an advertisement for Chanel CHANCE perfume catches my attention. The words "It's Your Chance. Embrace It" resonates.
I believe God sends messages in various forms. After the day I had, I couldn't help but to believe this was a message intended for me.
I know I'm not the only woman in the world to over analyze a thought, second guess a decision, or think of every possible worse case scenario before arriving at the "best" decision. If it was possible, my head would probably explode due to the unnecessary mind drama I impose upon myself. Don't get me wrong, being critical or analytical at times is beneficial. I'm living a pretty blessed life as a result. I've avoided many obstacles because of my thoughtful decisions; yet, I can't say I'm living my BEST life or expressing my BEST self to the world because of the barriers that come along with being an over thinker. My best will be expressed when I'm able to take CHANCES,risk more, and fear less. I'm 31 years old and still learning how to trust myself and the decisions I make without hesitation. It's not an easy task. I'm use to controlling and planning every facet of my life; however, a situation today challenged me to take a CHANCE and embrace what was being presented to me at that very moment. I'm still asking myself subtle questions in my head:) However, knowing I'm stepping out of my confront zone and attempting to discover my true self is fulfilling enough. As the advertisement states, "It's your CHANCE. Embrace it."
Surprise yourself, Take a CHANCE today!
