Doors swinging, ever evolving:  ages, stages, never dull.

Door number one your past opens to memories gone by; the  good  bad or ugly.  
Focus on the now. Constant motion, smiles and frowns, leaving behind scars, smiling as I slam the door.

Door number 2 is where you are this moment;  do you have your car keys, your phone, your wallet and mask, feed the animals, answer the phone…..  No don’t:  It might be important but I almost don’t want to know.

I’m late….. again. I’ll get better, I promise Oh come on  now;  tell the truth.  You’re your mother’s daughter and product of your father.  One more poem to write, story to be told;  never mind the grammar, press send and be bold.  The list goes on and on.  

Door Number 3 is our future:  Where are we going anyway and what was so important? What’s the rush, Have a seat;  there are stories to be told.  Some we’ll never know the answer to, so rest your weary bones and  have a lemonade.

One comes, one goes, a changing of the guards, long hair, short hair, long legs, stubby, bald, furry friends of different sizes, doors slamming finders keepers.

But now the wind has blown doors open for spring cleaning, airing dirty laundry.  I have to use the Liu.  One more call, the door is knocking, I’m really hungry……work?
Oh tell them they can wait.  At this point I’m canceling all and may as well stay home, it’s spring cleaning after all.  

But as I sit, the hammers pound, the chain saw’s are grinding, the jack hammer taking out concrete all day long.  

I grab my ear plugs, down a shot and bury myself under the covers and scream “I live in nature, in this beautiful environment but still I get no peace”.  I guess their’s no utopia after all. 

I have to grab my coffee and water, slam the door and get in the car and celebrate:

I’M NOT LATE!!!!

Have a great day whatever door you walk in or out of today! Life has been anything but dull and I gotta say I’m TIRED. There’s been so much great news and sad news too and it’s a lot to keep up with but onward forward. It’s not spring cleaning but rather making up for the cleaning I never got to in summer but eh… I’ll get to it. I do live in a beautiful area and I kid you not when I say that there are 4 neighbors to my right, left and down below that have been building for 2 years and it’s sooooo LOUD! Maybe I’m just jealous since all of the back bedrooms are falling apart and I’m falling through my tub. There’s literally a crack in it that’s getting worse. Dry rot, termites who us? Yes, siree! But I’m not complaining …. much. hahahaaha. 🤣

I have been working on being on time to my clients I’m traveling to and I’m actually succeeding… YAY!❣️ I have a big clock in front of me and hell or high water I dart out the door and have been making it on time.

Have a great day and always know you can change your routine and ways but you’ve gotta do something different to make it happen.

Blessings of Abundance and Love,

💖

Cindy

Woah! Relatable, unfortunately. I always think I can do more than I can and must carry my to-do list over. It’s OK. Life is not boring, and I do get the important things done! You, Cindy, are a super-achiever, even though your life may seem a little chaotic sometimes.

I hope your neighbors’ construction noise ends soon. So annoying! We live in dread of the day the empty lots around us start construction. We just lived through construction of a new house across the street from our old place. They hauled in tons and tons of soil and moved it around for a couple of years, sending our soil mold allergies into the stratosphere!

I hope Santa gets you a new tub. You deserve it! <3

I love the door metaphor. Also, I think it’s important to remember that we shears have options even after all doors slam shut tight. Indeed, closed doors are a mixed blessing, because they can help redirect our energy where it’s needed most. ✌️

No argument from me. Perhaps, the people who benefit most from shut doors are those who’ve enjoyed privilege all their lives.

That’s kind of interesting door philosophy. Every door opens a different environment and different you.

Just a past week, got my finger between my room door. So, I choose not to cross that door for a while 😅

Cindy, are you channeling an inner Jim Morrison? I love the trilogy of doors. I also feel Wayne Brady is offering us which door we want – the past, the present, or the future. Maybe a loved one died and we want to go back to that time – like Peggy Sue did when she could not speak to her now alive grandmother when she called. Or, maybe the present is so blissful with your children all at the perfect ages, where they need you so much and their eyes are wide open. Or, the future as you finish your degree and say yes (or offer such) to a proposal to a burgeoning love. Which door shall it be? And, where are those car keys? Keith

Wow, Cindy, I had to pant the whole way through this post just to keep up! Whew! I think slamming doors might be a good thing! I’ve been missing you recently and had to ask myself whose fault that was. (mine – I concluded.) I’m slamming the door on my injury slow down. I hope this post is partly fiction. 🙂 It’s fun. Love you much. Take care. Breathe.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little wand to wave over our friends. When they tell us something troubling, we wouldn’t have to say a thing, just wave our magic wand and their troublesome situation would start to to heal. I’m waving my magic wand – I call it prayer – over your situation over which I have no control or desire to control, but anything troubling you at this moment – even just the busyness of life. I had a wonderful PAIN-FREE massage this morning, so someone’s or many someone’s prayers are working on my behalf. Have a great rest of your week, my lovely friend.

Hi Cindy,
So many doors, so little time. And let’s not forget the windows…;-)
I can only imagine how busy you are with celebrations to plan, clients to see, animals to take care of, etc, etc. I am glad you are succeeding at being on time.
At this moment I also have constructions all around me, so I sympathize with that.
You reminded me of a secret fear I have. I live on the 7th floor of a 7th story building. Every time I am in the shower, in the tub, I wonder if the floor can hold the weight of the tub. I fear that the floor will give in and I will end up on the first floor naked. I don’t think of dying, but of being found naked. I guess my fear of being seen naked is worst than my fear of dying. lol
Blessings to you, and good luck with the multiple doors! ♥♥
