"If you’re looking for a happy ending and can’t seem to find one, maybe it’s time you start looking for a new beginning instead.” — Unknown
In life, we seek what we think will bring us a happy ending. When it doesn't go in that direction and we really know in our hearts it isn’t going to, we tend to stay where we are because it’s easier to remain in a comfortable situation instead of venturing out into the unknown. And to make us feel better about staying where we are, we make excuses or justify why we’re settling for something or someone that isn’t the best for us hoping that things will get better. But if we really don’t feel there will ever be a happy ending with what we’re doing or with whom we share a relationship with, then it’s really time to bring things to an end. Though hard to do, it's necessary in order to have a new beginning and a fresh start.
We are the author of our own life story and are responsible for our own happiness. Beginnings and endings are the cycle of life and if we follow our hearts and have closure with what’s not working, then we open ourselves to new beginnings with the potential for a happily ever after. We need to have the courage to venture out and seek that new beginning and new experience. If we find one and it doesn't end up working out, we need to think of it as more experience that we've acquired on the way to finding true love, joy and happiness. ~ © 2014 T. A. Garcia
