Wishcasting Wednesday – Don’t be Afraid to Open the Door

We have doors on our homes, our offices, our cars to keep other people, animals, things (rain, wind, etc.) out, right?  Is it really that simple?

Or do doors serve another purpose?  They keep us IN.

Inside…

Insulated…

Inaccessible…

Incarcerated…

Inactive…

Infertile…

Incapacitated…

Inadequate…

Inconsequential…

Inferior…

I want to open that door and let myself OUT.

Allow myself to BE.

  19. epapaluap says:

    Funny, my first response to a door was going in (entering the unknown), not coming out (leaving the known, as possibly undesirable). Thanks for the perspective check.

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too!

    I want to open myself to others, open the social door of mine. I am such an introvert person ( in reality) and yeah, I hope I nail it soon.
