The Endless Cycle

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” —Seneca

Did you ever notice in your life that whenever you thought you were done, you weren’t?  As soon as the laundry is done, there is more.  Kids ate? Guess what, they’ll be hungry soon.  Project done?  Quickly another one starts.

One year ends and another begins.  It might be worse than the previous one (looking at YOU 2020-2022!), or it could be better.  But the year ends and the next one begins.

Spring turns to summer to fall to winter and back to spring.  You can not stop the wheel of time.

A friend leaves.  Maybe they will return, or they won’t.  Even though it hurts more than you can explain, life continues.  Maybe you have a new beginning with them.  Maybe you have a new beginning with someone else.  But you will have a new beginning, because that is the way the Universe works: the old pass and make way for the new.

When you wake up in the morning do you curse because yesterday is gone?  Or do you face the new day with expectation and hope and desire to make the most of it?  Yesterday had to end for today to occur.  Instead of weeping for the past, celebrate the new moments.
