Doors open and close in our lives. I’ve always believed that. It’s painful when a door closes and things change in our lives, especially big things—when jobs are no longer there, when loved ones die, when relationships are over, when we get bad medical reports. Those are huge points in our lives, and they usually come with a lot of emotion. What do we do? Should we ignore it, push it away, cover it up, and pretend we’re not having those emotions? I don’t think so. I believe we can experience those things in our lives. Once we experience them, we can move forward.
So What Do We Do?
Those feelings cannot successfully be pushed down, covered up, or thrown away. It is when we experience the feelings, deal with them, and allow the emotions to come that we then allow them to GO away. There is a season for those unhappy thoughts—just a season, not the rest of your life. You never forget, but you do get to a place where you can focus forward and move on.
A bright opportunity is yours beyond the season of disappointment, fear, and anger. Start looking at the wonderful life that you have available to you today, tomorrow, and the next day. Count your blessings; literally, write down all the blessings in your life. Do it now! We all need to find ways to move on, live, and be thankful for the life we have.
When you are ready, let those feelings and emotions go. That season is over, and it’s time to move on. Start looking at the beautiful opportunity that is in front of you.
Think About It with Me
Here are the things that I believe are true for anyone who is experiencing the closing of a big door in life. You may not be totally here yet, but you can and will be. Consider these truths:
Here’s the “tough love” for you. Once you have given yourself time to grieve, get over it. It is time to move on to the next season in your life. You can start living the positive life that is in store for you. It is your choice. You can stay in the season of fear and anger, or you can choose to move on. Please make the choice to move on.
