A couple of weeks ago, a friend mentioned the difficulty she was having dealing with things coming to an end.
I told her 'Some things must end for some things to begin.'
It's funny how we naturally feel like the end of the world has befallen us when something ends unexpectedly.
Someone's life doesn't count. I can never measure the value of a life so let's not go there.
However excluding death of a loved one, some of us can go as far as falling apart completely, feeling as if our life is over when something changes drastically.
In knowing that time is of the essence and we must make the most of it, why not accept the end, move on and seek new beginnings? Make it an opportune time to explore, discover, experience something that you never would have if your circumstances remained the same?
Know that it is a transition phase and it is a matter of time before a new door opens.
There was a time that I was going through a break up, not feeling too great and in need of a feel good factor. At that moment, the following words of a song emitted from the radio.
'If you just seek then you shall find, the door will open up in time, just hold on to his [God's] hand you know that there is a master plan.'
I had never heard the song before, and I have no idea who sings it but the words resonated with me and helped me to put things into perspective regarding change and the essence of patiently waiting things out.
I am fully aware that regardless of the positivity we may have within, life's changes can feel insurmountable. Nevertheless just apply my mantra 'acceptance and go with the flow.' Get your mojo back. Fall in love with you and your life's potential.
Each door that closes is a cue to walk forward and open the next door of opportunity. Life is filled with quid pro quos. You do tend to get something back when something is taken from you.
Therefore a potentially bleak present can give way to an exciting future.
