The saying goes… One door closes and another one opens. That door closing can pertain to a lot of different things. Love, jobs, opportunities in general.
Well, I know that in my life that has happened quite a bit and when it does, you forget that the other door will open. It’s hard to remember that. When you depend so heavily on one thing, it can be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s scary. It’s scary to be alone. It’s scary to not have a paycheck. It can feel like you’re wandering through a swamp. Murky water and detritus everywhere you turn. The giant trees obscuring any sunlight and at night, the dangers that live there become more prevalent. It’s scary to wonder how you will ever get out of the hole you’re in, but you will. The sun rises the next morning, breaking through a clearing in those mossy, great trees. The grayness around you starts to burn off allowing the rays of the sun to warm your face and you can find a way to land and solid ground. We all have to remember that hope will once again sprout before you like an orchid. A beautiful flower growing in the darkest, dankest place.
Hope is that orchid. A beautiful bright flower. Most people think that they are delicate, but in reality they are a hardy flower that never really dies, but only goes dormant. You just have to wait for the bloom to come back. Sometimes it takes a few months, but it will return. Hold on to knowledge that the bloom will return, just like good fortune. When we lose something or someone that is extremely important to us, it can feel like we will never have that joy ever again, but it comes back and most of the time it’s better than before. Don’t let the bad things that happen make you lose faith, because when our days are the darkest, it will be faith that gets us through. Faith in family, friends and the knowledge that a small flower will bloom in darkness.
We need to remember that in the midst of despair, when that door closes in our face, that we have to start looking around. The reason is because the door doesn’t always open itself. Sometimes we have to open it. One of those other doors is unlocked and waiting to be opened…. and on the other side is a meadow full of flowers and sunshine. It’s full of hope and promise. So don’t forget to check every door… an new adventure is waiting for you on the other side.
I know this was so geared towards my situation. It made me cry tears of joy~hope and definitely faith!! I love your words and you!! XOXO
It’s all I can do at the moment… but I love you… just wanted you to know ❤ ❤
It means the world to me!! ♥
Very powerful words of wisdom. I think it is relevant to many… like me, who fight with health issues daily, like those in an immediate crisis. Hope is something we often forget to hold on to.
