Which doors did you walk through today? Which doors might you open tomorrow?

    Opened the doors to the oral surgeon today–OUCH!! Not the best door to open! Tomorrows door is the hygenists, then Thursdays door is the orthodontist–so I think my teeth are going to be screaming on Friday if I open any more doors!!

    Funny you wrote that today-because I stood at the door today having to talk myself into opening it!! I would have run if the kids weren’t watching! 🙂

    Opened a door to a new organizational system for notes, documents, clips, info, lists. Evernote. Online plus handheld.

    Opened a door to conversation with a good friend who likes to share organizing ideas; which might support a deeper friendship.

    Closed a door to “not knowing what to do next” by brainstorming life-development ideas. Lots more dreaming, planning, visioning left to do before this turns into actionable plans though; and a big piece of that is prioritization and time-sharing planning. Wish I had someone to work with on THAT.

    Closed a door on living as the limited definition of “self” from my past. It’s really tempting to reopen that door sometimes, and when I notice it’s repeatedly cracked I shut it. Apparently I need to fix the latch; the winds of change keep blowing it open. 🙂

    Closed a door to believing that I don’t have power in my life. I have power and choice, even when circumstances are tough. I can choose to deal with what’s in front of me, until it’s done enough, and then take my freedom and choose more fun things after.

    Opened a door to big dreams. To believing their possibility enough to be willing to dream them and work for them. Started toying with ideas for what I want my intentional life to be.
