“Close Some Doors. Not Because of Pride, Incapacity or Arrogance, but Simply Because They No Longer Lead Somewhere” – Paulo Coelho

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life

“Knock, Knock.”
“Who’s there?”
“It’s Me.”
“Me, who?”
“The road to nowhere.”

Would you open the door? Would you give your time to this, “road to nowhere?” 
And what if you have already invited it in? Would you continue to sit at the table with it? Pouring it another cup of coffee and wondering when the conversation will lead you somewhere?

And while you wait for that “somewhere” to arrive, there may be other knocks on that door to life. Are you available to answer or are you too distracted by the waiting of a conversation to start? Are you encouraged to go on more adventures, or are you weighed down by the current baggage? Standing at the door of a barren road, do you see a better person in the mirror, or do you go unrecognized by your own self? 

Time does not wait for our realizations. Time wasted, is time we will never get back. Close the doors to desolate roads and open the ones calling to experience life and encourage personal growth. There are many places awaiting.
