“Look on every exit as being
an entrance somewhere else.”
It seems most people think of an exit as an ending but surely it is more than that. There can be no beginnings without endings. It starts with birth. We leave the womb and enter this life apart from the place where we were brought into being. Beginnings and endings go on and on all through life.
We continue to exit from where we are and find ourselves at the entrance to new experiences and lessons. Some look at these doorways with fear and foreboding, others with happiness and excitement . I have stood at my doorways with both attitudes and feelings at different times and places in my life.
I have found that things are rarely as bad as I think they will be and usually much better than I imagined. It has a lot to do with mindset. If you think the worst will happen you will be miserable and miss out on the wonder of exploring the world while on your journey and that would just be too sad.

When God shuts a door…he opens a window. Loved this, s usual. 🙂
We just have to be willing to see the opening whatever it may be and to sometimes take the less comfortable more unconventional way.
A lesson alright. Like navigating in the dark with hope as your guide.
So agree with you, I have always looked for openings and that endings are not endings but transitional doorways, love Stoppard’s work too.
The key to those doorways is being open to the new and often unexpected and trusting that whatever the transition may be it is meant to make us whole and one day, perfect.
Lovely advice to start the week with – thanks!
Thanks for visiting. Stop by anytime…the door is always open.
Awww on the kitties. I linked this post to Awww Mondays.
I agree with your assessment. If you look on the positive more than the negative you’ll view the world differently.
Have a fabulous day. ♥
Thanks, Sandee, for visiting and doing the Awww link.
Wise words, Patricia! Thank you for the enlightening start to the week.
Thank you for visiting. The door is always open even if I am not home which seems to be the case most often lately.
Getting out and around is a good thing! 🙂
Mindset is everything
