This was originally posted on 12/21/2011...I was looking back at the progress in my life and could see so much growth from this post...

I'm sure you've heard the adage, "When one door closes, another door opens."  It seems this has been happening around me my entire life, but I just didn't have the insight to see them as doors.  I think I was so busy worrying about things like: how to keep money coming in for the mortgage and utilities (not to mention the 900 credit card bills), gas for the vehicles, food for my son and I, etc. 

Those of you who have followed my blog (my apologies for not keeping it up lately) know that my son and I lost our home recently and through all that trepidation still came through with so many positive things due to doors opening when others were slammed shut.  It was then that I realized that worrying does nothing but give you heartburn and indigestion, not to mention unsightly wrinkles on your face (and other places too odd to mention).  Therefore, the point in worrying became lost to me.  Why freak out about things we have no control over?  No reason I can think of.  We are all born control freaks, we can't help it.  But we can learn to let fate take the wheel and steer us where we are meant to be.  We have to stop the backseat driving (or fate will say, "Don't make me pull this car over," and we know what that means.) 

I am ever afraid of opening new doors, afraid of change and new circumstances.  It scares the hell out of me, and yet I will walk right into a "haunted" house just to see if it's haunted.   I now understand the doors and am not as leery to peek inside before I go through. Those of you who worry about EVERYTHING in your life, give fate the steering wheel or the reins and let it lead you to your destiny.  You're going to get there anywhere but maybe the journey will be a lot more fun without trying to control everything in your path.

I am really missing my mom this year, but I suspect that will be the case every year around this time (the holiday season and anniversary of her death).  I'm just so thankful for the way I was raised and for the people who took responsibility for the job.  God bless.
