What if endings are just part of beginnings?
What if endings open up new paths?
What if endings produce the “mud”
for new lotus flowers to bloom?
Why do we fear or grieve endings so much?
We might have gotten attached to the familiar.
We might have taken the status quo for granted.
We might have identified completely with roles and functions.
Endings can be painful as they mean we need to detach,
we need to disidentify and take nothing for granted anymore.
Endings can also be hopeful,
As they mean
a new beginning,
an open door,
and a “muddy” journey
filled with growth
and new beauty.
