Doors #WotW

'When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.'

It probably sounds a bit weird, but I often look at life as a series of doors.  There's something serendipitous about it all.  It seems sometimes when you have young kids that doors are closed to you - or maybe we close them ourselves?  As we have doors closed in the past, often you can see the other that's opened as a result.

And if I stand in a metaphorical corridor of doors at the moment, I'm not entirely sure the doors I want open, are.  

What stops us doing what we want I wonder?  Those doors are in reach.

  1. Oh, this one has got me thinking, especially as I'm struggling to make a choice at the moment, and I'd say doors are definitely involved there. We often limit ourselves and stand in our own ways more than life doing that to us. Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  2. An amazing word. This is like an eye opener to me. I have been sad for weeks because I am feeling like I am not growing. In the blog, in life and motherhood. Maybe... just maybe I need to look deeper into whats happening and maybe I will see something is really opening up for me. #wotw
