The last day you do something could be one of the most important days of your life. It could be the difference between weakness and strength. Faith and security. Never again and always. Truth and denial. The last day means something. It means you made a choice. You decided to act. You decided that something had to end. Something needed to stop. A limit had been reached. A boundary had been set. It was time for an ending. An end. A last day.
I feel like new beginnings get all the glitz and glamour. All the fanfare. The endings seem to come and go so quickly when we all know that they don’t, do they? It takes a long time to have a last day. How many months, years, decades do we spend not quite getting to the end of something. We delay, we deny, we excuse and we explain but we do not stop. Last days are too hard. So much time and effort goes into preventing them, even when we’re hurting. Even when things have gone too far.
I want to argue that last days are just as important as first ones. It takes courage. It takes self-respect. It takes guts to stop. To end. To let go. To walk away. Last days are not for the faint heart. They are for bold souls and strong hearts. The last day is the doorway from the past into your future. You have to be ready for a last day. You have to get ready for a last day because there is no turning back. It is your rite of passage. Created by you. You counted the countdown. The last day is worth celebrating, no new beginning has ever come without one.
Light & Love,
