Element of Surprise

 That old saying - when a door closes a window opens - sort of reminds me of inconveniences. Sometimes they see like the closing of a door. Not a BIG deal, but irritating at times. I have not had things I consider inconveniences for a long time. I think it is because I have chosen to think about what there is to be grateful for. I have been practicing that strategy for 6 years now - amazing how the approach changes things. I hope I continue to look at life this way. The difficult part is choosing to go with gratitude when it is MORE than an inconvenience. Baby steps, I guess - hopefully I will get there eventually for the bigger issues.
