Closed Doors

As humans, why are we quick to find flaws in any and everything that crosses our paths good or bad? Even worse, why do we wait to realize what we had was good, when it’s already gone? Why is it so hard for us to just enjoy what we have in front of us instead we find ways to make ourselves miserable then complain about it? We need to step back and look at everything in a different lens. Instead of wishes for the love we see on TV, be happy for what you have now because tomorrow isn’t promised. Helen Keller once said “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 which has opened for us.” And in the end if you are absolutely convinced that whatever you had is better than what you can ever have go for it, just make sure you checked the other door first.
