30 day journey journal - endings
"New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings." Lao Tzu.
How true! Sometimes, for one thing to begin, another has to end. It's okay to grieve over the thing that is ending, but eventually you have to move on and make room for new beginnings. And sometimes those new things grow to be so much better than you thought when you were consumed with the pain of the ending.
The seed has to break open to become the new plant, otherwise all the potential sits curled inside, slowly drying out and losing its chance to live. And before the seed breaks open, it is buried in the earth, in the dark and damp. At the time when it may feel that everything has ended, that's when it is just beginning.
