Look for the open door

“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 been opened for us.” These words of Helen Keller are a good message for the beginning of the new year. Keller, whose many accomplishments, despite her blindness, are renowned, knew how to go forward even when there appeared to be no doors at all—open or closed.

Such individuals can inspire us in these times of uncertainty, particularly in the face of the world’s troubled finances, fear of terrorism, and instability. Keller’s words also apply in more personal matters, such as the need for a job, the passing of a loved one, challenges with one’s health—or some other adverse condition.
