Note to Seeing the Door series:                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Wherever you go, possibilities surround you! By opening both your eyes and your heart, a door will always appear.

Have you ever noticed how many different types of doors exist in the world?  Nearly each and every door leads to an opportunity.  Some doors are physical; other doors are metaphoric.  All doors lead to opportunity.

On Facebook, my friend Deborah Grayson  Reigel posted a fantastic Coaching question of the day, she asked “What’s absolutely perfect about your life right now (no matter how small)?”

What a great question!!!  There were many answers from the simple to the more complex; each one thoughtful and each one unique.  The one response that left me in a quandary was, “Does anything else matter if you and your loved ones are healthy?”  I love when people challenge me; I love when people make me think.

Well my initial response was that good health is not enough.  So many people have good health but are crumbling inside.  I have seen ‘healthy’ people hurt.  I have had friends who seemed to have it all choose to leave EVERYTHING behind.  One of my favorite people committed suicide.  So, if I think that way, good health is not enough.

Upon further reflection I realized that in Judaism, we often pray for the healing of body and the healing of soul.  So now I am much less conflicted.  There are a lot of ways to look at being healthy.  Different doorways lead to better understanding; I am really glad I took a few minutes to ruminate on what being healthy means.

In case your curious, my answer to Deborah’s coaching question was, “Writing is a beautiful part of my daily life and sometimes my writing even touches people.”

May we all be blessed with a healthy spirit and a healthy body.
