Usually when we are at the end phase of something, we know it: we may have felt it coming for a long time, or we have the sense that things aren’t working and we need a change.
Or, maybe it’s as simple as we’ve mastered something: a tool, a path, an understanding, even a relationship, and we’re ready to try something new.
We’re not meant to be bored in this life.
And yet, even when we know things are changing, we often resist pretty hard: we kick and scream and cling to the little lifeboat of “the way things were” in order to do anything but step into the unknown.
This gap, this space, this unknown always shows up when we are changing. It is the moment between what we were, and what we are going to be. It can be scary, this gap, if you don’t know that a gap is natural, normal, and how it always happens.
Think back to the last time you experienced a really big change, and recall the gap or space between how it was, and how it became.
If you’re sensing endings now, and are already in the gap, just look at the gap as a friend. It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to not have a plan.
The biggest thing is to understand when something is coming to an end, is that this is normal, right, as things always are. Just accepting this, allows you to move forward to what is next.
