To my children a closed door is meant to be opened.
There are no inhibitions
They just turn the knob and push it open.
It made me think...
as adults we have been taught to tread lightly around closed doors.
Closed doors are meant to stay closed until someone welcomes us in.
And don't we use this same thinking when it comes to people and relationships
Some issues we just stand and wait to be welcomed in.
We see them as closed doors that we have to rap gingerly/timidly at .
What if we adopt a childlike attitude to closed doors and other situations like them
Instead of seeing the closed door as a blocked opportunity or relationship
We work on finding a way to open it!
May 2011 be the year that we all see the wonderful possibilities that lay behind those doors.
