I truly believe that sometimes a door in our life is closed for a reason we can’t see. And yet still we bang it, kick it, jimmie the locks – or sit out front of that door crying because we couldn’t get in. What we don’t see, because we are so darned focused on that closed door, is that there is another door at that very moment being blown wide open – just for us. And it’s perfect, and we don’t have to work as hard. And it just makes sense. But first we have to see it and walk through it with courage. And once we do, we realize that it’s a perfect fit. And we may even find that this door was much better than the one we had picked out! My life is a testament to this – that closed doors are often hidden blessings – and closed in order that you may pass through one that is even better.
So if this is you – if you are still banging on that door and letting it control your life – then I ask you to pause, take a breath, and look around. And I mean take a good look around. Read the signs that might be flashing right in front of you. And you may find yourself walking away from that closed door once and for all. And never looking back.
Just another word of encouragement from your motivational speaker who has spent a lot of time and energy banging on the closed doors – and is finally ready to walk away.
How about you?
