What are you?

Some point in my life I came across a pretty well known poem/saying that touched me. It got me thinking about ways to approach situations in my life. Some people think issues are road blocks or barriers, but I know think of them as a change of direction or hurdles to jump over.

Some people see a closed door and turn away.
Others see a closed door and turn the knob.
If it doesn’t open they turn away.
Still others see a closed door, try the knob.
If it doesn’t open they find a key.
If the key doesn’t fit they turn away.
A rare few see a closed door,try the knob.
If it doesn’t open they find a key
If the key doesn’t fit-
They make one!


I try to be a key maker in my life. What are you?

I'm usually the one who tries a key and turns away, but I've lately been trying to make one. :)

Great poem.

Very profound! I always look for a back door instead. In fact, I do that so often I am starting to miss porches!
