Like every play, your life has its own story. You don't really
know how it's going to end, or even what's coming up next.
The best thing you can do is keep up with what's going on
and steer it in the direction you would like it to go. The
rest will play out as it will.
Everything has its beginning. For it to be a good beginning,
whatever came before had to prepare for that beginning. It
may have been some other beginning, or it may have been some
ending that started this beginning. Be prepared.
Beginnings usually take up more energy
than something in the middle. It's the "ramp up"
time… the "0 to 60" that gets you pushed in
your direction. If you are beginning something, it's important
to remember that, so you don't think it's always going to
be tough or unfamiliar. It gets better as you get going.
What begins also has to end. It's part of the cycle of Life.
If you can become accepting of this, and non-fearful of it,
you'll have a chance to be braver during the lifespan of whatever
it is you're doing. Don't live for the ending, but don't avoid
There are going to be people and things that come into the
story of your Life. You need to make room for them, if you
want them to be a part of your life. That means time and space.
If you shift the direction of your life for another, it shows
you care (and they should shift for you, or else it sets everything
off balance, which is a bad thing).
Exits are the endings of others. People and things go away.
You need to adjust to that as well, or else you just leave
an empty space where they were. The adjustment is a form of
grieving, and it's all natural. Think of it as filling up
with new possibilities.
This is the big ending. The one that "caps" your
life… puts the period at the end of your sentence. So
what do you want that sentence to say?
