Openings

Openings

Each day I remind myself to be open to what life brings.  Open-minded and open-hearted.

Life rarely unfolds in the same direction as what was expected.  Often I will pause and reflect with bewilderment on where I am or how I am.  I ponder the many steps that led to this particular moment and how few of those steps were planned in advance.

I recall a little picture I once created:

The Route to Happiness
The Route to Happiness

I’m obviously no artist but I’m quite pleased with the accuracy of my drawing.  Now, many years later, it still makes me smile and nod my head.

This is why I’m continuing to open my heart and mind to whatever the future brings.
