There is Always a Good-bye!

New Normal

“Goodbyes make you think.  They make you realize what you’ve had, what you’ve lost, and what you’ve taken for granted.”

            ~ Ritu Ghatourey


“It’s sad, but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life, starts with goodbye.”

            ~ Carrie Underwood


“Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.”

            ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

            ~ Walt Disney


There is always a good-bye!  And not always a good-bye to a person or persons.  There are many types of good-byes and so many in the past few years, and not always our choice.  Good-bye to habits, traditions, relationships, family, friends, colleagues, favourite food, favourite places, to name a few.  Everyone has different good-byes for different reasons.

Every and all good-byes have important practices.  Whether big or small, good, or bad, easy, or hard, a good-bye is significant, and is important to acknowledge and accept and then move ourselves along.  A good-bye allows reflection and time to recognize the value of our lived experiences.  Good-byes are part of who we are!  Don’t overlook the gifts of a good-bye that will hold you steady in a new beginning as you welcome a new hello!
