This popped up on my newsfeed in FB yesterday.....

(The endings in our lives are just doorways through which we pass in our ever expanding journey through eternity into greater and more magnificent love.

In human form, we cling to the familiar. That is the way our brain wires itself. Still, the unknown offers adventure, growth, new possibility!

What is ending in your life right now? What promise of new beginning does it hold?

Rather than looking back, and clinging to what was, far more joyful to look at the rich possibilities as we stand in the doorways of transition and transformation. Love you all)


I love this Ann. I became a widow 124 days ago. I'm navigating through unknown territory, but I know he's with me as I move forward on this new journey of mine,,,I see him as my doorman, holding the doors open for me as I step through ❤ I know he's guiding me along..I feel him and I see the signs.....

Hi Andrea....I've been saying I'm riding the winds of change for some time...I just assumed Jim was going to be riding them with me.....we ren ted. So, 3 weeks after his death I moved from the island we called home together for the last 10 years and move in with my son and his family. This is temporary. Im ready to find a place of my state, new home, new start. I know he's guiding me and helping me you, it's exciting and scary at the same time.

Yes, I can relate to this. I'm coming to the realization that I'm going to eventually have to sell our house. It's an old house and needs a lot of work and I can't see myself trying to keep up with it. My husband was a diy'r and there are a lot of unfinished projects. I thought about trying to find a handyman/contractor, but then I said, do I really want to stay here with all these reminders, or do I want to start off a new chapter? I don't want to end up in a situation where I'm forced to make a decision. The prospect of starting over is exciting but scary as hell. But as my Dad used to say, "The only constant in life is change."
