Often I hear talk of doors being closed and another opening or how to choose the right door. But how much could our possibilities expand if we just viewed each as a doorway without a door? The truth is that new opportunities are always available to us. Those doors are open and most times, if we focus, we can have a glimpse of how that choice would look. The door comes in with fear. The what ifs or the fears of losing or missing out on something. The fear of making a wrong decision creates doors that we then have to open or close; choose or leave behind. While those fears are normal to have, it is also a choice. To me the old fear of a door closing was more about the decision I'd have to make of "what next" or the feeling that I may now be "missing out" on what was in that spot in my life. But the truth is it was never the case. In fact, every "door" that "closed" was really more like a new hallway opening at the back of that room that I chose to follow and not look back. As I lay here looking around at the main level of my house there are a few doors for a bathroom and coat closet but mostly it is open doorways. And this is how I choose to see my life; open doorways and open possibilities. I'm grateful to believe there are always beautiful possibilities open to me (and you). I'm grateful to have a vivid imagination so I can see them in my head and chose which feels right to me. I'm grateful to have a vision board to remind me of all the open doorways that I will travel through this year to reach those dreams. I'm grateful for a home that reflects this openness. I'm grateful to wake ready to boldly step into this new year and walk through some new doorways. Do you believe the doorways are already open to you? Can you see all the possibilities that await you in this new, beautiful year? How can you start this new year with a commitment to yourself? What are you grateful for today? May your year be blessed with open doorways and may you find gratitude in all your daily blessings. Happy New Year!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
