Dear Diary,
Whenever I find my self facing an uninvited ending, my first impulse is to deny it then lash out at myself, my choices, my life blame myself,
yes - somehow - I then ultimately turn to EE or Christ.

EE - I buy into the false belief that there is something wrong with endings—that they are unnatural.

Christ - I take my cues from sages world wide who tell me endings are a natural part of life’s cycles of change and transformation. Bible - To everything there is a season & a purpose for everything under God's heaven. This too shall pass.

Mantra - Endings, in fact, if I let them can help me grow.

For the next 10 days I will try to focus on 10 ways to honor endings so I can open doors to new beginnings.

Day 1 - Uncovering Hidden Endings

Whether looking back or looking forward when I see an ending in my past or headed my way—no matter if it is the end of a way of thinking, a relationship, or a way of life—I will resist the temptation to greet it with disdain.

Instead, I will stand firm & know that for some reason I need to turn off the road I am on and take another pathway. Simple.

I won’t continually look back or hang my head and relive each painful moment, wondering if I am being punished somehow for some unknown, unimaginable wrong, lapse in judgement or weakness of will.

I will accept/expect that my new adventure will, in its own time, reveal its reward.
