Monty! What's Behind Door Number 2?!!

What if life was like a Let’s Make a Deal show?

You remember Monty Hall telling us what was behind some of the doors and then asking the contestant, “Which door will you choose, Number 1, Number 2 or Number 3?”

Life’s kinda like that. You broadly know what might be behind some of the choices you could make but let’s be honest, you don’t rrrreeeaaallllyyyy know…now, do you?

I’m running into a time like that. Lack of clarity is creating some anxiety and I’m confused about doors. Serendipitously, I’ve just taught a couple of classes on goal-setting.

Ha! The blind leading the blind!

Also, it just happened—or did it—that my devotions for the first few days of this month have been about clarity, focus and purpose. Hmmmm, when the student is ready the teacher shall appear.

Once we’re clear on our purpose, on where we want to go, the path is often self-evident. Finding or deciding on the purpose is often a struggle, though.

But, if you don’t define your purpose, goal, direction, then you’re just floating. As the Cheshire Cat said to Alice in the Wonderland, “If you don’t care where you’re going it doesn’t much matter which road you take.”

I don’t know if I’m tired of floating, anxious about lack of direction or feel that I’m wasting precious energy walking in circles.

Whatever the reason, it’s gettin’ close to time for me to look at the audience, look at Monty, look up at heaven and point. “Monty, I’ll take door Number……..”

There’s something in life you’re trying to make a choice about. What door will you choose?

Have a great weekend. Keep me in mind, I may be skydiving on Sunday. See you Monday.
