Painful Ending or New Beginning?

They say new beginnings are often disguised as painful endings. Do you agree? Have you felt the numbing hurt of closing a chapter in your life; eventually realizing just how important it was to end? I like to believe there’s magic in starting something new. Yes, it’s frightening and unsettling at first, but how wonderful it can become! A fresh start isn’t a new place, it’s a new mindset…that’s when the adventure begins!

Truth is, none of us will ever have it all figured out, but lucky for us, we don’t have to! All we have to do is be willing to take the next step–and to do it scared.

I remember being 16 years old, so naive and inexperienced, and being SO obsessed with C.S. Lewis quotes! They really got me through some heartbreak and moments of desperation, I’ll tell you that. For example: “THERE ARE FAR BETTER THINGS AHEAD THAN ANY WE LEAVE BEHIND.” Ugh. Right in the feels.

I need you to be BRAVE enough to start over, take the chances, take the risks. I need you to BELIEVE in yourself enough to trust that you’ll be okay! Starting over is scary…but remember that this time you’re not starting from scratch, you’re starting from experience. That makes all the difference! Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Until next time, enjoy the beauty of becoming, darling!
