I found this photo when I was scanning through Google; it is supposed to be a mistake builders made when building an emergency exit. I laughed but then thought boy this is a life metaphor.
We all come to a point even when we want to escape from a situation there is no exit door; which is when we must face our fears and move through them. It takes courage and grit.
Rosa Parks said, "I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."
