When One Door Opens

Posted on: September 22nd, 2015 by Madison Lake 2 Comments


When one door opens, they all start to open. It’s exciting, exhilarating, overwhelming. The trouble is, which one(s) do you enter?

Have you ever felt you have too many options, that there is so much to do and you want to do it all? But it’s difficult to do it all really well. We might feel we are good at many things but what is it we are great at, that gives us the most pleasure, what seems to be our natural gift?

It was always easy (at least for me) to think or say “hey, I can do that” or “sure, I’ll get involved, I’m really good at doing that”. My right brain and I just love doing all things creative. But too many times I felt overcome with the possibilities.

Over the years I have learned to rein myself in, or maybe I just finally found my thing. Sure, I am capable of doing many things but I’m not talking about hobbies and extracurricular activities, I’m talking about the gold nugget, the one thing that makes sense.

Many people know what it is from early on in life; being a doctor, dentist, photographer, chef, explorer, singer. Decision made. I had to open many doors to find my way to the write room, even though it was there all along.
