Out the Window

Since I can remember, I’ve had a fancy for windows. No idea where it comes from, maybe from that old adage that says: “when a door closes, a window opens”. It’s a symbol of hope, I guess. There is an alternative, an escape route, a way out. It’s comforting.

Throughout the years I have looked at windows every where I go, some times I take pictures, comment on them. There are such beautiful examples of them and very few pay attention. I do and will continue to do so. Here are some observations and some conclusions about this rambling.

On any given day, we are all presented with small and big crises. They come at us and there is no way to step aside, we must face them and deal with them. How we do it depends on our mood, our personality, our circumstances. Each one of us, in our own way, get past them. That is as it should be.

Now, there are times when we are so overwhelmed that we just cannot handle them. Then is when the window comes in handy. Yes, the window. Not always another way out, but a way to rid ourselves of whatever is keeping us from acting, from making a decision, from moving forward.

What I am saying is: throw all those doubts, all those conflicting feelings, all those negative thoughts out the window!!! Gather your strength and just do it. It is the only way some times and the feeling after doing it is unbelievable. Liberation, lightness, an absolute realization that starting again with a different perspective is the way to go. OUT THE WINDOW, it is!!!

  1. I love your post on windows. So relevant as we get older & face new obstacles/problems/situations almost every day! Thank you

    1. It is what inspired me, the changes coming at us, the many different situations we are dealing with. It seems we are suddenly struggling with things which did not bother us before.
