New Beginnings Monday

Often when we think of change we get sidetracked by the pain that may (or may not) occur as we go through the process. Then we say things like, "I would rather die than go without meat."

'Meat' could be replaced with 'two cars', or 'fast food', or a '3000 square foot house', or a number of other luxuries to which we have become accustomed.

With any impending change we tend to concentrate on The End rather than what forms after la petite mort.

But when one way of life closes, another opens. We can choose to focus on the beauty, freshness, and potential of a new beginning with joy. We can welcome changes.

When we do, we find that the change doesn't kill us, and more often than not we find new ways better than the old.

Here's to the power of acknowledging that as we change, exciting new beginnings always follow painful endings.
