There’s been a photo circulating on Facebook the past few days.
While I can really appreciate the color and patina of those doors (pretty similar to this treatment I did… FAVE!), I’m having a hard time with this quote. Let’s chat about it shall we?
I love a good encouraging quote. And I know that this one is meant to be inspirational… but if I had settled for ‘it not being my door’ …I wouldn’t have my 3 beautiful children. They simply would not exist.
The house would be quiet.
The dishes would be done.
There would be no smashed raisins in the carpet.
The tree would be beautifully decorated with delicate matchy ornaments.

If you’re not familiar with our fertility story, you can catch up here. It might also clear up your questions about why our blog name is ‘Sawdust and Embryos’.

How can we know?
I realize there’s no real answer to this question, but it’s something I ponder a lot. Surely there are those of you that think about these deep and profound things at the most random times throughout the day too?
Let’s chat about it in the comments below!
- Has there been a situation where you’re glad you didn’t give up?
- Have you found yourself wondering if a door is closing because it’s ‘not your door’ or because you’re supposed to karate-chop it down?
- Have you ever felt that a door was opening to you… only to later realize it was the wrong decision?
- Have you ever felt strongly that a certain ‘door’ was meant for you, but after exhausting all resources realized it was time to move along?
- Have you passed by a door, only to regret not FIGHTING for it down the road?
