I just remember feeling b r o k e n. I felt so betrayed by God and just confused, mad, and probably every single negative emotion that you can think of under the sun.
We’ve all heard the famous saying “When one door closes another opens”. Well there’s a REASON why it’s one of the single most popular, and at times, worn out sayings in history. It’s because its 100% true. It might as well be living and breathing and walking amongst us. That’s how real it is. ESPECIALLY for creatives and entrepeneaurs. Personally, I’ve had MORE than my fair share of doors slammed in my face. Like when I first moved to LA. I bought a brand new car and it was paid in full which was love, considering the fact that my rent was about to quadruple. I bought the car in Chicago so I had to ship it to my LA address. It would get to LA a week after me. So after a full and very Uber-filled week of being in LA w/o a car, you can only imagine my excitement when It finally got here. Life was compete. So I thought. On my 5th day of being a newborn LA transplant, my car had finally made it.. And then just like that, ‘Mr. Door’ decided it was the perfect time to make an appearance. Two days after my car arrived, I got into a terrible car accident. My new car was totaled. I just remember feeling b r o k e n. I felt so betrayed by God and just confused, mad, and probably every single negative emotion that you can think of under the sun. I wanted to leave and move back right then and there. But instead, I decided to keep going. Doors come in so many different shapes and sizes. They love opening and closing at their own leisure. But the key thing to takeaway is that they truly are either a lesson or a blessing. We can learn just as much, if not more, from closed doors than we can from the open ones. It’s all about perspective. So let’s rename closed doors. They have a bad rep that they don’t deserve. After all, without the closed ones, we’d probably never get the chance to even lock eyes with the open ones.
