Another door open

When one door closes another opens. But we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door
that we fail to see the one that has opened for us.

Lingering in our regret is self-defeating. When we loose an opportunity or it becomes clear that a certain plan will not work, it's disappointing but we need not be consumed by the loss. There are other possibilities. Perhaps we've overlooked an option. Perhaps someone we know has a great idea. We can

take all that energy we might have given to disappointment and use it to begin searching for the other open door. We will notice it sooner if our gaze is up and our attitude expectant.

It's fine to feel disappointed when something doesn't work out, but you need to keep your antenna up and alert to alternatives.
