When something ends another begins.

We all experience beginnings and endings in our lives, from back to back zoom meetings, life, seasons to relationships, from development courses to careers. There is an important role that endings have. When we finish a meeting and move to the next, when we close a relationship and open the door to self love and acceptance, when we say goodbye perhaps for the last time. Endings give us completion. A way to close out one conversation and move on with clarity and commitment. However, if we move through these moments too quickly, there is a chance that we can feel incomplete, that tasks pile up or our interpretations keep running in our mind. This could be a result of the door being ajar.

Having something clearly end can support a smoother transition. The transition becomes a way to empty our thoughts so that we have room for what’s to follow. These can be moments when we step into the car, play loud tunes on the highway. The moments we stand up, stretch, grab a fresh coffee. Not feeling waves crash repeatedly over our heads without catching our breath. Let’s be ready for the waves.

Where there are endings, there are also beginnings.

Create fulfilling moments, where you leave feeling present, engaged and ready to pour your greatest effort into life.

When you’re ready, dive into each experience open hearted, all in, with two feet this can be transformative.

Journaling prompts:

What must end so something else can begin?

What do you need throughout each transition you make?

How will you honour the endings + welcome the beginnings today?

May we always be all in.


ps. Inspired by my dear friend who led a meditation focused on honouring endings. Thank you @alifilmore.
