DOES THE END OF A MATTER MEAN IT'S OVER?
It Aint Over 'Til It's Over.
Do we know what the other side of the end hold for us? Yet, we go all out to reach it, as though we do. We assume anyplace is better than where we are. Not so fast! Storybook endings only happen in storybooks. 'Happily Everafter' doesn't last forever. Not in this life.
So what does it mean to end a friendship, a marriage, a relationship or, a job? Does it mean, " I'll never do that again"? Not at all. One friendship ends, another begins; We go from one job to another; Divorce can bring out the worst in us, yet, we'll do it again. We go from relationship to relationship, and always think the next one will be better than the last. I've just described life, as we know it.
Remember the children of Israel when Moses led them out of Egypt? When they got far enough away from Egypt they began to feel safe and comfortable. That's when the mumbling and complaining began. They shouted at Moses, "did you bring us out here in the wilderness so we could die"? They were hungry. They said, " take us back to Egypt, at least we had food." Israel was quick to go back to what they were most familiar with. And that's what we do when things get rough. We pretty much rely on 'The Expected' end of faimiliar things. There are very few surprises, and the ending is pretty much the same.
It's ok to be daring, taking risks. Isn't it time we got out of our comfort zone and do something. I think it's harder doing the same thing day in and day out, rather than trying something different. What do you think?
