Expanding through new doorways…

A conversation last night with a client sparked a train of thought. He commented ‘In life, we control everything’. I, chuckling gently, said ‘We control nothing’.

If we flow; we grow.

If we embrace the changes and lean into the love, grief, joy, sadness, tears, wonder, hurt, anger and pain; we grow.

When we grow; we flow through new doorways.

    Love that painting. And your statement: If we flow: we grow. That is too true.

      mj that is one of my daughter’s paintings. Em did two sets of three and they hang in my work areas…one blue, one pink. I can see so much in them when I’m reading for folk and I feel Em very close by when I do. She was touched to know that her work helps me to work, but I think she still secretly suspects I’m up there in ‘lala’ land…xx

    Challenges are doorways to new opportunities, I reckon – an opportunity to grow. Luv and hugz to a buddy, Eric

      If we catch the colour of the opportunities, then they colour our lives – much love and hugs to you my lovely buddy xx

    I am totally signed on to this concept of yours, Jane, of “flowing” through life’s doorways! Totally brilliant (to use some UK editors’ overused term!), my girl!

    I love this, Jane. During a harsh season in my own life, I worried about what would happen if my dad got sick, or my brother lost his job, or………., well, you know. Finally, I realized that all of those things could happen with or without me, and at the same time, I realized the number of things I actually have any control over. There aren’t many although I have considerable influence over millions simply by doing what I do best. 🙂 ~ Much love, Bobbie
