Just like the old saying goes...when one door closes...even if it is a beautiful door, and one you didn't really want to close...
You have to be ready for the one that opens. Because the door that opens may take you to places you never imagined, and lead to opportunities you never knew existed.
A place where you can spread your wings and fly, or simply sit and rest awhile.
You may have noticed that I have not one, but 2 of my galleries now set up on my sidebar with flash. Mr. Tide decided that it was time I spread my wings to fly and after lots of discussions where I said things like, "but that seems pushy, and in your face," I think I am finally ready to close the door on being afraid to put my photography out there, and instead, to embrace this new venture fully by promoting myself.
I am also thrilled to now be represented by a wonderful gallery, and extremely supportive man named John Zaccheo! John is an internationally acclaimed artist and has become a wonderful mentor for my fine art photography. Thanks to my dear friend Mary Beth, who introduced me to John, I am now shutting one door and leaving behind the comforts of the "known" world, and stepping through another door in search of new and exciting adventures.
Sometimes it is scary to put yourself out there in the world, but if you don't then you will never know how high you can fly.
When one door closes, do you bang on it and hope that it will reopen? Or do you go in search of the next door, hoping and knowing that what lies beyond it may be far better than you ever though possible? I dare you to swing that next door wide open and walk inside. You may be the only one who knows you stepped inside, but do it anyway, do it for you!!!
