Doors

When a door seems to be opening…a door you’ve been wishing would open but never expected it to…shouldn’t you take that step?  Wouldn’t it be foolish to ignore it?  How much would you kick yourself later if you don’t?  If not now, when?  And what if, besides that door, other doors…and windows, show signs of movement…and it’s all lining up the way you have wished it would…and still you hold back…unsure…because what if?  What if it’s not what it seems?  Or what if – what if you fail?  What then?  Especially when you are not just "you" but also an important part of other peoples’ lives too…people to whom you are responsible…people you must consider when deciding anything momentous (sp?)…because you can’t be completely selfish when there are mouths to feed and a mortgage…and yet…what is the cost of regret?

Just something to think about….isn’t it?

  1. A couple quotes:
    Dr. Joyce: “The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy , inevitable part of the process of getting to the top.”
    Sir Winston Churchill: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”
    Bill Cosby: “I don’t know the key to success but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
    And my favorite:
    Truman Capote: ” Failure is the condiment that give success it’s flavor.”

  2. ELL,

    I’m sorry – I’m not trying to tease – I just am in the middle of some possibilities that I just can’t TALK about yet because nothing is set and I don’t want to jinx anything and I don’t want to get too carried away with just hopefulness. So I have to just leave it at that for the moment. Which is very hard for me.

    Thank you for the quotes – I can’t pick a favorite – they’re all accurate. And bolstering. Is that a word?
