So long we struggle to reach a certain point, only to find the door closed and barred. Now what?
I really appreciate what Helen Keller had to say about this:
When one door of happiness closes, another opens but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
No matter how beautiful the door may be, if the way is barred, this is not a place for us to find our happiness.
Rather, it is time to look for another door.
