Life takes us around and around in circles. There is never an ending process to happy times, victories, sad times, trials, and tribulations. We are forever evolving, growing, and learning from each day and each reaction to an action. When one thing stops another begins. That’s all life is about, endings and beginnings. You never cease to go around and around. When one chapter in our lives ends, another begins. “All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time” ~ Mitch Albom.
Life, a book filled with chapters. We may not realize it because they all seem to blend together. When sorrow and death happens we are upset and hurt. It’s natural that we focus on the situation and continue to ask why, instead of understanding the cause and proceeding with the inevitable. The inevitable being life has to go on. The lessons learned, memories made, and wisdom acquired is needed and used to understand the new chapter. One memory ends but new ones begin.
When you release and let go of the old things, you create room and opportunities for the new. It’s like a woman wanting new shoes but don’t have the closet space for it. Well, if you toss out the old ones you will have plenty of space for the new ones. It’s your reaction to the situations in your life that determines the end and where you start the beginning. The groom ends life as a single man, but now begins life as a husband. A pregnant woman ends life as a child and begins life as a mother.
When one door closes another one opens. I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason. Those reasons may be known or unknown. The effects and affects of actions are what help determine those reasons.
Are you living life as a new beginning or are you still complaining about your ending?
