An ending makes the beginning possible. That is, after all, the order of nature? Leaves change and fall from the trees in the autumn only to have new leaves in the spring.
One day everything seems to be falling apart. And the next day, life goes on as usual. Every change has an ending that prepares us for new growth, new activities, and new beginnings.
New beginnings are like new energy released in a new direction. You will notice that you are making new beginnings in your life when you:
- Spend more energy on the future than the past, or even the present.
- Shift your focus to something new, and your productivity increases in that area.
- Feel your motivation and excitement increasing, as you look forward to something new.
There is a rhythm to the whole process of shedding your old identity and being renewed into a new identity and purpose. It’s a new opportunity waiting for us.
