As one door closes another door opens. As a child, I never thought about that. My life had been mapped out for me from the minute I was born. I was to get married and have a family. Creating a website and writing a book weren’t something open to me, if the thought had crossed my mind, it would have been a pipe dream for me, a reality for someone else.
But opening new doors, means we must make sure we close the old doors first and that takes courage, but just think how much better you’ll feel once you’re through the new door. It’s apprehension that holds us back.
But that’s the thing about life. We’re open to change, our circumstances change, and things happen. Not always something we’re consciously aware of, or something we think about, but it’s there. Our job is to keep an open mind. Perhaps not think about it too much but continue to live our life.
As a child I could never have foreseen what I am today, or what I have achieved. All I know is that my thoughts were based on hope and I didn’t aim big. I believe doors open when it’s the right time, when we’re mentally prepared and when the universe believes we’re also prepared. It also knows our struggles.
We must have hope, continue to be patient, and learn to recognise the signs. The sign came for me when my mum told me it was a difficult birth. Recognising the universal signs is something we can all do.
