Fact #231: Facing the right way

Some wise words to live by.
"...each time a door closes, the rest of the world opens up. All we need to do is stop pounding on the door that just closed, turn around -- which puts the door behind us -- and welcome the largeness of life that now lies open to our souls. The door closed kept us from entering a room, but what now lies before us is the rest of reality." - Parker J. Palmer
This is a lesson I think I'll have to learn over and over throughout my life. It's in my nature to keep banging on the door. Turn around, Laurel!

Til tomorrow.
