This time of year brings us experiences of beginnings and endings. We enjoy the fun of graduations, the loveliness of weddings, the excitement of leaving on summer trips. We anticipate new schools, moving on to the next grade, and looking forward to college experiences or maybe starting a new career. When you really look closely…you see that beginnings and endings are really the same. At both intersections you are moving on to a new place in your life. With a beginning- you fling the door open and have a new chance to create whatever you want your life to look like. With an ending- you close the door behind you and step bravely into new possibilities. Both take courage, both take faith. Embrace your beginnings, embrace your endings….there is a treasure to discover in each one.
