Embrace Endings and New Beginnings

There’s an old saying about one door closing and another opening. Many people don’t recognize their newly opened doors until much later, but the truth is that there are always open doors. It’s easy to see them in hindsight. Since so many people fail to see what purpose a closed door has to offer, it’s easy to miss an open door. You don’t have to miss opportunities anymore. Learn how to turn your endings into new beginnings, which makes finding your open doors much easier.

Let Go of What You Cannot Control

If you don’t want something to be a part of your life anymore, stop thinking about it. That’s all there is to it. You cannot control the weather no matter how many times you check your weather app or complain to your spouse. Stop thinking about the bad weather and think about finding a way to make it work for you.

Embrace Your Own Reality

Here’s the thing; everything in your life is yours and yours alone. You will not be a 5’10 supermodel if you are only 5’3 (trust me, I know). You need to learn to accept that being vertically challenged is your reality and embrace it. You can’t change it, so what’s the point of being upset about it?

Make Changes

Once something in your life comes to an end, make some changes. Did you lose a job that you love because your performance wasn’t up to par? Change that! Did you lose a job because the company you worked for closed down? Use this opportunity to find a new career path. Making changes, deciding you don’t like where you are and that you’d rather be somewhere else is a fact of life that you can control. If you want to make changes in your life, make them.
