I never really cared for that saying, “when one door closes another one opens.” Now don’t get me wrong, I totally get the saying, it’s very inspiring and it gives you lots of hope. Who doesn’t want to feel hopeful? . Me, me, me! I want to be hopeful. So, what’s my problem?
I guess one, I believe that what suppose to be for me, will be for me and nothing or no one can stand in the way of what’s truly mine.
Secondly, what’s behind them anyway?What’s behind a closed door, is something or someone that’s not a part of my journey. So, why do we give so much energy to it?
Thirdly, I believe that everything in my life serves my highest good, so a “closed door “, has a purpose. Let’s say, for instance, it’s there to teach me about what I am truly desiring. What is it I really want? Perhaps it’s there to teach me perseverance, discipline, or look at what could be getting in the way of me reaching my goals.
The greatest thing I have learned about this, is to focus my attention on the purpose of the journey of the “closed door “, instead of the door itself. I have learned to look for the doors that God has open for me. The places in my life that I have walked through and received what belong divinely to me. Yes, I am grateful for closed doors, because they keep things out, but they aren’t my greatest focus. Hope this opens up your mind in a new way. Stay open my friends.
