When One Door Closes
Sometimes our focus, or vision is so fixated on one dream, goal or outcome, that one can’t see it is time for a change. We can’t see our that envisioned outcomes are actually paralyzing us. In our peripheral another door has opened, but we are too stubborn to see.
I was fired some time ago from a job I swore was mine. Underhandedly, I was let go. Instead of rejoicing in being able to explore other opportunities, I started to panic. I thought of the embarrassment I would face. Now, in this time of Thanksgiving I am extremely grateful that I have moved on; that I have been released to walk through a new door. A good number of projects have come my way that I am extremely proud to be working on. They feed me as an Artist and I get to work with people I respect.
This wasn’t the first, nor will it be the last time that my envisioned outcome will have to take a back seat to a greater plan. Instead of panicking, I will remind myself to be thankful that a new door is about to open.
