It was by chance I discovered this. Discovering things is what I do.

A friend once called me a "scavenger" and in doing so, finally gave me the answer I longed for when someone asked, "What do you do for a living?"

"I am a scavenger!" I now declare proudly.

Miners dig for gold and precious gems. I rummage through lives and words in search of the same thing.

Yesterday I discovered that "Happiness has two doors."

I believe it would be safe to say that everyone wants to be happy. Some want it to last forever and more realistic dreamers would appreciate even a moment or two in each day. Perhaps even, if they should be so bold as to dream so big, would like much longer periods mixed throughout the reality of life's ups and downs. Moments turn into hours and days into one greatly appreciated week. It is with this realization I discovered that there are two doors that lead to happiness.

You always enter one and leave through the other.

Some enter the door at the speed of light skipping past others in pursuit. They do anything they believe will make them happy without taking the time to understand the consequences. They gamble, they lie, they dive right into an opportunity without thinking, simply because they see it as a "chance of a lifetime," when in fact, God provides a lifetime of chances.

They step on and over others to get to the head of the line. They profit little but spend more than they have in order to give the appearance of success and the illusion of being happy.

This happiness is short lived and the door they exit leads most times to pain, depression and much longer periods of regret. Sometimes it simply leads nowhere.

The door to true happiness opens easy for those who believe that happiness is a choice.

Everything need not be perfect in their life in order to be happy. They don't need to have fancy clothes to feel properly dressed for any occasion. They don't need an expensive car to make a statement. They need a car to get them to work. How they live speaks volumes.

They may not come from a story book family or have a perfect marriage, but they see them as a mosaic portrait of God's plan for their life.

They remember the joy of playing with an old rag doll or stick of wood for hours because their parents could not afford better.

They have witnessed love in the eyes of the elderly because they stopped to say hello and share their time.

They have fallen down but their faith has never let them down.

Although at times, happiness may be short lived, the door they exit always leads them to another and another, for when God opens one door...oh, you know the rest.

You find happiness there, too, right?

Nice story.
