Door Number One Please

Ever see a door and wonder what’s behind it?  Sometimes there are doors you just don’t want to open and other times there are doors that scream, “Open me, please”.  Funny thing is though, you’ll never know what’s inside until you open it.  One of my favorite sayings came from Chris McCandless, the young man who left everything behind to experience living in the wild; Alaska. He said, “The core of man’s spirit comes from new experiences”.  I believe that. But to experience something new you have to open a door and accept what’s behind it.  Unfortunately for Chris, after discovering that the wild door to Alaska wasn’t what he wanted, it closed and locked behind him and he never came back.


I’m pretty sure Chris would be the first to tell you that he didn’t regret opening that door.  He just made the mistake of running across the threshold a little too quickly.  Lesson learned.  Be prepared for new experiences and open those doors, but step inside carefully.

    And did you open the door?
    I’m sure there are lots of stories behind that old door.

    I tried. It was locked. I would love to see what was on the other side.

    Of course I did. It was dark. I couldn’t see anything but a bunch of ghosts levitating. 😉
