Weekly Mindfulness Support Blog - When One Door Closes

Hello and welcome to this glorious Friday, July 2, 2021. Today is a rare and precious day that will never come again. Please stay safe this weekend and do you best to protect the welfare of animals from loud fireworks.

We live in a land of opportunity. Some people have too many opportunities and others have too few. Those who have too many opportunities often become ungrateful and take for granted what so many others are denied. And, well, those who have too few are often victims of an oppressive society. While this is an unfortunate fact, most of us seem to have an abundance of opportunities. Sometimes, we refer to these as doors.

Most of us have heard the saying, “When one door closes, another door opens.” Though this is usually the case, what we don’t often realize is that when one door closes, we’re actually standing in the hallway.

If we reflect on our lives, we will likely agree that we spend an extraordinary amount of time looking for the next door. Though we may find and eventually walk through a door, even if we are initially experiencing excitement, it’s not long before we are in search of the next opportunity.
