Journal Entry from 12/27/11
My life is a hallway.
I walk down the hallway, enjoying the halls, learning, growing, enjoying the walk. I am pushing myself to improve, taking the small steps daily to move forward.
Then, without really even expecting it, I walk through a door. Without any conscious effort, without much immediate work, I walk through a door to arrive at an even better hallway. This hallway is shinier, there is more action, there is more. And I keep walking. I get used to the hallway, it’s great. I love the walk, I love being in the hallway.
But then, just as unexpectedly as before, I walk through another door to an even greater walkway that is completely different, better, clearer, more interesting.
This happened quickly at first. It seems like every 5 books I was through a new door. But the huge, transformational growth started happening less and less frequently. But, when it did happen, it is with more intensity, more power, more.
I assume these doors will be there for the rest of my life, further and further apart. I will keep walking, one foot in front of the other, enjoying the hallways not really waiting for the next door because I don’t know what that hallway will look like, but expecting…
Walk. Door. Cool.
