There will always be cycles of beginnings and endings. They don't always line up like they seem to be doing today. Usually different aspects of our life are at different stages of the cycle.
Sometimes endings feel sad. We have a connection or attachment to them and wish we could have just a little more time. Other times endings are a relief and we welcome moving forward toward something else.
Sometimes beginnings are exciting and we can't wait to get started. Other times beginnings can be a little intimidating or scary as we navigate a situation that is completely new.
I don't know what beginnings or endings you are going through right now. I hope they are ones you can easily see beauty in. No matter what they are, one thing is for sure, the beginnings will eventually become endings and the endings will open paths to new beginnings. So if you find yourself at a stage of a cycle that is challenging or painful, please know it will get better. Please know you are loved and supported. And always know you can reach out and find someone who is there for you.
I'm grateful to just witness these cycles today. I'm grateful to see the flow of the cycles that are coming and those that are passing. I'm grateful to trust the process. I'm grateful for a day with my kids and my dad at swim lessons. I'm grateful to see them achieving more skills. I'm grateful to prepare to see family we have been away from for too long. I'm grateful for some balance and some normalcy.
What are you grateful for today? What cycles do you appreciate? How do you find balance in this process?
May today remind us there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. May we move with trust and find beauty in the cycles as they begin and end. Have a beautiful weekend!
