If one door closes, look for a window, then look for a new door, then another window.

if one door closes

If one door closes, look for a window… then look for a new door, then another window. There’s always lots of doors and windows. Keep your eyes open for ’em.

Bounce Back Tool: I have a single word mantra I recommend – the word FORWARD. Whenever you’re tempted to dwell in the past, repeat this single word: Forward. Also, it helps if you’re a forward thinker and brainstorm up one positive thought and/or one positive action to use to keep you moving forward. When you’re tempted to indulge in a negative thought and/or regressive behavior, consciously stop it and swap it for this positive thought or positive action that will move you forward!

    This article served as a reminder for me. I, like yourself, am an advocate of happiness. Maybe not in the same way you do but I always put Happiness as my priority. There are times when I feel lonely of course, just like everyone else. However, I realised that trying to cover my sadness with overly positive thoughts won’t really help much if I don’t release the burden first. So I’m glad to read the word “Forward” but again, I still believe that it’s important that I recognize what makes me sad and then when I am ready to release that, then it’s time to move forward.

    Thanks for this Article Karen.
    I love your posts.
