Beauty Beyond the Gates



Sometimes all we see in front of us are the closed gates, but oh how much more beauty lies beyond the gates that we allow to hold us back.

The picture is as beautiful as the quote below it...I am happy to say that I and my husband are passing through those gates...As we buy a new home out side the city.
Lovely post Melly!

So true! I'm guilty too! LOL It's just that when you are in that moment, it is hard to see and look forward as to what is beyond. Then again, how would I know if i don't open those doors :-) I guess, it just takes me a little time to have the courage - - - eeeekkkkkkkkkkk I am such a coward. I do wish to be a bit more courageous (not too much, just a bit :-) )

Nice to see you had a beautiful vacation and safe trip. By the way, I love those flowers almost covering a part of your cousin's home. I think it is just beautiful with a touch of whimsy, don't you think?

I love this picture and this quote. It's so true. I am working on not being held back by others or situations. It's a work in progress though. Thanks for inspiring me!
