Into the Next Room

You've been in one room for a long time.

For some reason you don't feel comfortable anymore.

All the furnishings are decorations look dated.

The air is stale and without circulation.

The conversations seem to be the same time after time.

The faces are so familiar they aren't interesting anymore.

Your efforts to be present and in the moment are failing.

In the doorway there is a hint of light.

A soft sound is beckoning.

Something is stirring you in the direction of the door.

Curiosity is calling.

Do you dare?

Slowly you venture there.

You tilt your head to peak around the corner and look in.

Inhaling the fresh air, the breeze captures you.

You pull your head back into the room where your feet still are.

Your heart retreats back into your body and you exhale.

Observing your current room, you realize you don't belong there anymore.

Do you stay for everyone else, all the memories, what's familiar?

The next room is big.

The next room is unfamiliar.

The next room is a level you haven't encountered.

The next room is has extended an invitation.

The next room is waiting for you.
