The hallway

The "hallway"......

I'm sure we've all heard the phrase: "When one door closes, another door opens.

But the "HALLWAY" is a bitch!" (Pardon the language.


For me, 2017 was a year of closing doors; most of which I closed by choice. And for each door that closed, MANY doors opened. But I've been hanging out in the "hallway," unsure of what to do next.

The natural tendency is to retreat; to go back to our comfort zones. We do this for various "reasons," but the root cause is fear of the unknown.

However, retreat is NOT an option for me. I cannot "un-know" what I know nor "un-grow" my growth.

So here I stand in the "hallway," and indeed it IS the "b" word!

There are so many doors to choose from; doors that could lead me to realizing my biggest goals and wildest dreams. Yet, nothing is certain, nor will it ever be. I have grown weary of hanging out in the "hallway" of indecision. So I've decided to run, not walk, into the unknown; and give it my best shot.

I'm sure there are many of you having similar experiences. So I want to urge you, don't retreat to the familiar. It's BEHIND you for a REASON. And don't beat yourself up for hanging out in the "hallway." But when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, pick a door and run for it! If it doesn't work out, no worries!

There will always be more "hallways" and doors.

There's a BIG world out there; and it's ADVENTURE time!!

Happy Wednesday!

Thank you Kristy for letting me share such an amazing post!
