I’ve always hated that expression, “when one door closes, another one opens.”
What the hell is that supposed to mean? Is it an exit or entrance? Which room does it open on – bedroom, kitchen, bathroom? That would suck.
What if you have to walk backward through it, or are trying to be nice by holding the door for everyone else, does your new opportunity go to them instead?
It’s a stupid saying…
For all I know it’s a revolving door that spits me out right where I started, while still thinking I’m in a better place.
It’s just ridiculous, all this talk about doors.
Now, if they’re talking about making your own door, that’s something else entirely. Hand me that hammer and nails, this is going to take some time and hard work.

Very cool take on the prompt. Build your own door and knock a wall down while you’re at it. Go for it!
I share your thoughts – make your own doors or remain where you are.
I’m not posting until tomorrow, but you & I are on the same wave about that revolving door. Loved your thoughts about holding the door for someone else & passed opportunities.
Love your take on the prompt! You don’t have to be a carpenter to build your own door, right? 😉
You make your own luck… nicely done.
Nice job turning the adage on its head! It’s true, too, isn’t it? Sometime’s you’ve got to make your own opportunities
I hear ya! Gorgeous photo, too.
Immediately made me think of this: http://thebloggess.com/2011/11/its-like-when-your-parents-get-on-facebook/
I always say when God closes a door he keeps a window insecurely locked!
I love this one. Especially walking backwards . . . !
This made me totally laugh out loud. I love the twist on giving your opportunity away if you let someone else walk through your newly opened door. It’s cool that you do funny snark just as well as the pretty stuff 😉
