Happy Humpday Pic: Doors and Windows


This is an alleyway in downtown Seattle, which the businesses creatively addressed the blank walls by painting doors and windows. You can see the trash bags ready to be picked up.

What a great visual for people wandering around Seattle, looking for art. Create your own ‘door of opportunity’ or ‘open your own window when a door shuts’.  Goes along with my favorite saying: If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.

Throughout life, we have all seen opportunities shut before our eyes. Maybe we need to look around and open our own window of opportunity.  During this non-second-great-depression, when jobs are scarce, take this time to do something for yourself.  Start working out! Many community gyms, like YMCA, have scholarships for people of low-income. There are many ways to enjoy the gym: join one of the myriad of classes they offer.  Cycling, Swimming, Tennis, Yoga, Zumba to just name a few.

Volunteering is a boon these days, but many are turning people away. Think of other, less popular organizations that need help: trash cleanup, mentoring prisoners, nursing homes or delivering meals on wheels. Nothing in your community? Create and organize something!  These are items you can place on your resume during this time.  Plus, your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being will be much better for it.

There is so much to do, just create and open that window.
