…somewhere in a life, at some place and time along the road, when it is time for closure.
Recently I have had some closure in my life. Because I needed to. Because I was once taught by a friend that life deserves that you do that, find closure, now and then. That you deserve that. That I deserve that. And that you, to be able to open new doors might need to close some others. To find closure and to close down. In order to open up. Something else.
And I have opened many new doors lately. I sometimes wonder if there have been a few too many in a bit too short a time. But that is just the way I am. And lately (and in time for God’s sake!) I have learned to live with that side of me too. The side that turns my life in to a constantly ongoing circus. I like circuses. I’m beginning to think I might even need them.
Anyway – I was offered some new keys, and wanted to try them all. I have found a lot of fantastic things behind those doors. Things I was longing for, things I didn’t know I was longing for before I found them, and things that were missing in my life and that I was actively searching for.
Some of my keys fitted right in, were easy to turn and immediately gave me a view of what was hiding on the other side of that door. Others were a bit hard to turn, the lock was fighting me and needed special treatment. Some are still unopened and waiting.
And I keep on collecting keys, realizing that, that is actually what I have been doing all my life. Collecting keys. Saving them. One by one. Cause you never know when you’ll find the door to where the key fits.
And at this point I am closing this door, the door to this blog. It is not without a certain amount of pain. It is not without a feeling that I might change my mind. In about five minutes. So if it is fine with the person who once gave me the key, I will keep it, along with the rest of my collection. Because you never know what is waiting around the corner. Isn’t that amazing?
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu.
It’s been a pleasure.
