Free Yourself by Delina Hill-Brooker

We just adopted a dog. He was used to being locked in his crate for the majority of the day, and we’ve been transitioning him out of it. I thought that we were being successful however, whenever he gets scared (of the vacuum mostly) he will literally open the crate from the outside and get in. Last night we didn’t lock his crate and this morning when we got up he stood there waiting for us to open it. It was already wide open. He just sat there anxious and eager to get out.

This led me to realize, that sometimes we can be our own worse enemy. There’s nothing stopping us BUT ourselves. We use our previous situations and mentally locked doors as excuses to stay in a rut or hinder our own progress and possibly keeping us from fulfilling our destiny.

Furthermore, if the doors in your life just so happen to be locked, find a way to either unlock them or knock them down.
