Leaving the Door Open

by Josh Billings on January 22, 2015

Lately I’ve been practicing the vibration of “leaving the door open to pleasant surprises.” That vibration is all about leaving the door open; it’s not about keeping score of what comes or doesn’t come through the door.

My job is to keep it open. To keep looking for opportunities to open it wider. That may involve saying “maybe” instead of “no.” Or throwing an idea out there instead of assuming it won’t lead to anything. Or, when I find myself shutting the door, realizing what thoughts led me to shutting it and softening or shifting them.

Ultimately it’s about realizing that I have the power to keep that door open. It’s not about chance or personality or genetic predisposition, it’s about my current attitude, my mood in this very moment. How I feel tells me how open that door is. And that guidance is the doorman to all things.

This message is only for a rare few of you. Or maybe a rare part in all of us that often goes untapped. It is a message about our capacity to stay connected even when others around us are disconnected. It is a reminder that we don’t need to give our attention to where something [...]

Mastering Your Own Expectations

August 27, 2014

My girlfriend and I had been fighting — the frustrating kind, that doesn’t really get anywhere in the moment but stokes your desires for change even more — but we had errands to run that had to be done in the next few hours. I knew we had to switch gears from fighting with each [...]
