Doors – they hold the promise of something new, curiosity, adventure, fresh starts, mystery. They all stand just on the other side of that door. So close yet so far away. Bringing two worlds together, yet part of the same. Inches apart yet so divided.
Doors separate rooms, tones, themes, experiences, activities. They have their own distinct space and worlds yet that one door brings them together when open. Blending the visual and energy of two different spaces. As you step through one to the other, the new environment is usually in deep contrast to the other, leaving traces of the old to the new. The door symbolizes a gateway to something different.
The metaphor of a door captures the moment in time when we’re on the precipice of a movement, decision, opportunity. We stand in the familiar, with the vision of what’s on the other side right before us. We can choose to walk through it, we can choose to stand in the doorway till we’re ready, we can turn back and never cross that threshold.
Doors offer a glimpse into the future.. what’s next. The option to indulge in it are yours. Is it freedom or confinement? Future or regression? Stand still or Reinvent your life? These defining moments, whether small or large are the doorways of your life that offer you opportunity or confine you. The choice is always yours.
I always walk through those doorways, usually I run thru them, excitedly approaching what’s next. What do you do? How do you live your life?
And what does your doorway look like? Big, small. simple, ornate? Wood, iron? With windows, without? How do the doors that present themselves in your life show up? And when? Are they barriers for you? Do they stop you or invite you?
There’s a saying that when one door closes, another opens. Do you believe this?
What’s your interpretation of the doors in your life?
