📅 Thought for today:
‘When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”‘
— Helen Keller

I recently had a client in this situation, and I would say it is not unusual.
The closing of one door can be very disappointing.
The loss of opportunity is a traumatic event and we need to process it.
As the old therapy adage has it, all change involves loss and all loss involves grief.
It is easy to understand how we can become blind to new opportunities whilst we are processing the old ones.
Personally, I take comfort in knowing there are a lot of opportunities, and it is not a requirement of life that we take every opportunity that comes our way.
We’ll take the ones that feel right, at the right time.
We should not expect any more of ourselves.
