On windows & doors

In life, we walk through many doors. Some close, and lock behind us. Still others sit patiently, unchanging and open, until you discover them. People often call these doors “windows of opportunity,” but walking through a window sounds like a messy experience. So, I prefer to think there are both: the doors and the windows. Doors take you to new rooms, and windows help you see the best view along the way.

This door has been right there, in front of me for years. But even if you’d pointed it out to me, which some more observant friends have done, I wouldn’t have seen it. I was too busy wandering aimlessly, as if  blind. I wasn’t ready to see the door. I was bumping into walls; facing things only as I came to them instead of seeking them out.

I was afraid that if I opened my eyes, there would be no door to see… I was afraid of being barred entry to my dreams.

But you know what? Running into walls gets pretty painful after a while. With a headache and heartache, I finally became exhausted enough that I had to stop fumbling about and sit down. While I sat, I thought. My thoughts turned to dreams, and to doors. Finally, too tired to be scared any more, I slept. And when I woke, I opened my eyes.

There, right before me, was the door.

Here I am, stepping through.
