We are as blind as we want to be.Maya Angelou
Some of us love their room to be dark and therefore closes the curtains so that no lights can enter in but some love their room to be bright and therefore open the curtains. Now there is nothing wrong with either, it is just your preference on how much light you want in your room. However, I learn something here, though it is just common sense but often times we can take it for granted.
You see, just as how when we close the curtains, the light will not enter, so much so in our life as well, each time we close our hearts and mind, ideas and visions cannot enter. We have put a mental block on what life has to offer. We sometimes no longer have interest to the advise given from our parents. Other times, when things around us are changing for the better, we somehow refuse to accept change and prefer sticking to the old ways. Therefore, we have narrow our vision in life each time we close the curtains. In the end, we may missed the calling of our destiny.
It is essential sometimes, we got to open the curtains and let the light enter in, we got to open our mindset to new things, open our hearts to accept the new opportunity. Sometimes, we need to learn how to be humble, knowing that we don’t know everything. The reason why some of us close our minds is because of our ego and pride. However, it is not the way how we can improve ourselves.
When we live with an open heart, unexpected joyful things happen.Oprah
Hence, we got to learn how to open the curtains in our life, to be expose to as many things as we can, read many kind of books, hang out with people that push you to be your best, listen to advises from those who are much more experience and one day, you are able to see things will start changing for the better, favour starts pouring in, a promotion may take place and dreams fulfilled.
