When you acknowledge that some paths truly are dead ends – regardless of how appealing they may look. It’s time to close the door.
Naturally, I’m disappointed. Nobody likes to invest time and energy into a project and then realize it was really just a learning experience. A growing opportunity.
But, as a wise man once said:
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney
We saw an awesome movie on Saturday: Meet the Robinsons. What a great flick. I HIGHLY recommend it for parents with young(er) children that tire of the same old Shrek potty humor or understated innuendo. This is fun movie.
Anyway, back to closed doors – it’s not like he isn’t a terrific guy. He is. Just not for me. Sure, parts of our romance fit together just great but you can’t build a long-term thing on parts. It’s got to be a mutual agreement of compatibility, investment, team-building and cooperation. It’s HARD work to pull off a successful partnership, no matter if it’s business or personal. And I just didn’t see our goals lining up. It has to be built on trust, faith, prayer and time together.
So, it was time to close the door. Here’s to opening new doors and boldly walking through them, feeling secure in the promise of God’s blessing.
