Backwards to forwards
Whether something is the end of one thing or the beginning of another sometimes doesn't matter... it's moving forwards that counts.
Today reminded me that when you look at a new adventure you have to close the chapter on the one before and remember everything it taught you, the people that you've met along the way and how valuable even the bad things can be. These chapters and experiences shape who we are and what we will go on to become.
Just as Steve Jobs
said in his Commencement Speech in 2005...
"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life"
