Gratitude Friday: Doors to Wherever...


I love wrought iron doors like this one.  While it may be closed, you can see through it and have a glimpse of what's on the other side.  It's intriguing (well, especially one that leads up into a big villa like this!).  But my point is, even if a door is closed, it doesn't mean that opportunity is.  Peak inside, see what's on the other side.  And if the door doesn't open, find another that does.

I've lived by this motto all my life (thank you Dad) and I've found many doors unlocked.  I'm grateful that I can see the opportunity beyond a closed door.  It's why I am where I am today.

I love your photo Megan and I love this post. What a great thought and that's great that you've lived by that motto.

I love that door! I also have always loved doors and windows -- and Italy has some of the most beautiful and intriguing ones in the world for me! I posted a lengthy post on my blog with several photos of just a mere few of some from Italy!

I need to take a page from your playbook. I definitely let closed doors stop me in my tracks, rather than taking action to find the other one around the corner. Thanks for the reminder.

Gorgeous photo.
