“Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity.” - Roman Philosopher.
I was just thinking that opportunity is kind of like a door that must be opened. I want my kids to see impossibilities as possibilities...that sometimes opportunity has to be fought for and won....that opportunity while a gift must be unwrapped to be fully appreciated. I took this photo two weeks ago and it speaks to me of opportunity, something I have been discussing with my kids of late. Opportunity comes to us all but we have to open the door and walk though it to fully embrace what lies behind it. What do you see? ... a closed door or one to be opened? When the door is shut do you feel like it would be amiss of you to go further or do you knock upon that door with boldness and audacity? I have been teaching my kids that sometimes life is about pushing through rather than sitting back. That life is waiting for us to enter in, open up and embrace all that we are meant to be.... yes sometimes that requires us to knock so the door can be opened for us..... and when it is...wow - opportunity, purpose and destiny awaits. So when you are faced with a shut door, I would encourage you to knock and find out what awaits you. Open it....push through and step up .....you just never know what opportunity is waiting for you!
Knock and the door shall be opened....seek and you shall find!
