The Door

I began to walk to the door. This was the door to change my life. My mother told me the answers were all behind the door. I couldn’t possibly believe all the answers were in one place, one time, one person.

Yet here I am. Looking at the door, contemplating what lies beyond, my heart races.

She didn’t say I should, she said I could. The power of choice. Do I look behind the door, change my life or walk on. It’s tempting to know more, but do I want the information? There is a limit on what I’m willing to know, isn’t there?

“SHHHHH!” I hear a voice from the other side of the door. Muffled laughter followed.

Now I needed to know. Reaching out, I gently squeezed the handle, took a deep breath, and with a quick shove, pushed the door wide.

“Surprise! Happy Birthday!” yelled my family in unison. Everyone together again – that is life changing.
