“Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.”
Opportunities in life are like the flip of a coin that can either land on heads or tails. Whether it lands on what we wanted or not, there is a consequence given for both sides of the coin. Similarly, in life, things may land favorably or they may not. Either way, there’s an outcome.
This quote comes Eric Roth who wrote the screenplay for the movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where the quote appears. The quote helps us view the things that don’t land favorably as opportunities. Because whenever something we wanted to happen doesn’t happen, it creates the opportunity for something else.
