If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.

April 20th - Be an opener of doors

Often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.

Helen Keller 

They say that when one door closes another will open for you, but sometimes that door isn't meant to be ours.  We need to accept what’s not meant to be and see what is there for you.  What’s meant for another is not ours to receive.  

What is meant for us will come to us and what isn’t won’t.   We’ll open many doors n our lives and sometimes will discover lives and loves that enhance our lives and somethings we we open o door that we would have been better not to cross the the threshold of.  

Maybe our wrong doors weren’t wrong at the time.  Perhaps they propelled us down a new path where we would make new choice or an opportunity to choose different in the future.  What’s meant for us will happen.  Whet’s not meant will never be ours.  But we won’t know that unless we try.  If we are learning and growing , one day were going to find the doors we need.

We can be equally grateful for the doors that close.  When we dont get what we desire it can be because there is something better coming our way.  Sometimes we just have to surrender the need to know and trust that things happen not on my timeline and will be for the higher good.   So don’t look with reqret at whatever door was closed, but remember that miracles do happen.  The best may be yet to come.

Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.

Sounds so much like my mother. She always said "if it's meant to be it will be." Definitely need to remember this now.

In looking back, I'm glad some doors never opened or rapidly closed in my life. Glad God knew those things better than I did and kept me away from some of them!

So true! There have been times in my life I forced doors open and regretted having done so. Que sera sera!

I think sometimes when doors have closed in my life there is not another door that opens immediately...sometimes it comes in the form of a 'window'of opportunity.
Blessings and stay safe- xo Diana

You just cannot beat Helen Keller as an example......
I have always found the 'open and closed doors' applications interesting. They are easier to see looking aft. I do not dwell there, but you see the wisdom of That closing, later.
Take care and be safe.
