As cliché as it sounds, every end has a new beginning. Emotions often get the better of us. We are human and we are fuelled by a desire to be happy. And when “happiness” is robbed from us, we spiral into a pit that is so dark, many never make it out. Dwelling on all the negativity deprives a person of the gift of being in the present.

Allow yourself to grief. Allow yourself to be angry. Allow yourself to scream and shout. But don’t stay in the shadow for a long time. No, my dear, they don’t lie. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You just need to stay on the tracks and keep going forward. Stop turning around to look for the light. It’s right up ahead.

When you’re done crying your eyes out. Or feeling bad about the whole thing, pick yourself back up and wipe the dust off your feet. There you are. You found the light. Everything is going to get better from here on out. Sure, you’ll trip and fall sometimes. If fact, you might feel like you’re in that dingy tunnel again. But the fact of the matter is, you’re not. Don’t get your imagination confused with reality.

Focus on the beauty of endings – it’s just the finality of a chapter that’s getting you ready for the next big adventure that life has to offer.

Choose joy.
And maybe a little bit of serendipity.
