Beginnings are exciting. We celebrate beginnings in many ways, including launches, housewarmings, anniversaries, and jubilees.
Beginnings are great. In our eagerness to celebrate and encourage beginnings, we forget they wouldn’t exist without endings.
This week, for instance, might turn out to be an excellent week to end…
… the project that isn’t going to amount to anything.
… the partnership with more negatives than positives.
… that tedious habit that you are well aware of and are desperate to break.
… those futile meetings that keep happening every week.
Every end brings a fresh beginning.
Endings lift the dead weight, release baggage, and free up mental space.
