When one door closes, another door opens

Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where things don’t go ahead as planned. Maybe you were applying for your dream job and you didn’t get it; maybe your heart just got broken by your partner or you booked your amazing holiday but then it got cancelled because of external other reasons you couldn’t control. These are typical situations where a door is closing. We get disappointed and wonder why this happened. We are sad.

But hey, remember, everything happens for a reason. The job you were hoping to get, did not work out for you because a better one is waiting for you just around the corner. The partner who broke your heart wasn’t loving you, so why would you want to waste your time. Maybe your soul mate is waiting for you but you need to be free for him. Maybe your dream holiday wasn’t such a great choice and you are getting a better deal for less money now.

Keep in mind, where one door closes, another door opens. We need to free up our mind and believe in ‘everything happens for a reason’. Your mind will be open and suddenly you can see things clearly. New ways will show up just in front of you. It may take some time but at the end of your journey you will realise and learn why the first option was not a good one for you
