When One Door Closes, Another One Opens (I Hope)

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about an unexpected curve-ball.

The curve-ball was confirmed yesterday. While I won’t go into details, I will say that the curve-ball was not as shocking as I thought it would be.

It has been said that when one door closes, another opens. I hope that is the case.

Change is scary, period. I don’t know about anyone else, but I thrive on the familiar and the comfortable. I need that schedule and that routine to get me through the day. But the reality is that we don’t grow until we step out of our comfort zone.

I am a believer in fate, that everything happens for a reason. I also know the value of hard work.

This curve-ball creates an opportunity. Though to be honest, the curve-ball is anxiety inducing, I know that I will come out of this stronger and better than I was before.

I am aware of the opportunity before me.

I could go back to where I was, but that is up in the air as of right now.

But if that does not pan out, I have to force myself to look at my present situation as a challenge and an opportunity.

I know it won’t be easy. I will make a few mistakes along the way. Where and when I will end up is a mystery.

But life is a mystery and a challenge.  Nothing is guaranteed.

I put my faith and my hope in the hands of my creator, the one who watches over me and everyone else in the world.

I know that everything in life happens for a reason. The hard times I’ve been through have made me the person I am today.

I know I am stronger than my fears and my insecurities.

Doris Day once sang the following lyrics: que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future is not ours to see.

Tomorrow is a new day, a new chance and a new opportunity.
