How to make an “Ending” a new and fresh and life giving “Beginning”

November 2015

What kind of Ending? An ending of a relationship, a life status, a career.  The ones that make you wake up at night or bring on tailspins of panic or worry about whether or not you can life with or live without.

Endings are really beginnings even if you don’t think it right away, see it right away, embrace it right away, live it right away, love it right away.  Endings are really the only way you can start fresh, up level, and move forward.  What is an Ending? A chapter coming to an end.

I’m a writer. I am a reader.  An English Major. A lover of books.  I’ve loved books, stories and chapters….all of it, my whole life.  I am also an Athlete and a Coach, I love endings, especially finish line endings – nothing feels as good as a finish line crossing or a goal accomplishment.

However, why when it comes to my own life?  It’s so different. It’s almost as if I run away from the finish line.  I keep trying to imprint the belief that my relationships and stations in life are all but chapters in my big book of life.  Let’s talk about the real life, the inner one, not just the outward show, why are those chapters so so hard for me to close?  Why do I fight it so much? So stubbornly fight it so much? Resistance is there. Like a concrete wall, solid with no cracks.

RESISTANCE.  After being a triathlete, cyclist and runner and even a personal trainer for decades and more, resistance is great.  It is the magic, the secret ingredient to make the results and the change happen. But for the body!

BUT not in personal life.  In the heart.  More specifically the matters of the heart.

I am in transition right now. I know it with every part of me.  I am stepping into acceptance of this closing chapter.

What ending are you resisting today? What needs to complete or end in your life – so that you can open yourself up to Bigger and better things?  What relationship?  What job?  What pattern? What belief?

Let’s agree, let’s make a pinky promise, a handshake, a secret pack, to make endings the opportunity to a bright new shiny beginning.

 

Health, belief and growth,

In the healing journey,

Meredith
