The boundaries of where one thing finishes and another thing starts are endings and beginnings respectively. On some level they just identify the outskirts of one thing and another and we like to call them different names. Today we are all coming to the end of a calendar year and the beginning of another. Some of us may also find ourselves involved in endings & beginnings in relationships and other assorted human activities. I call it transitioning, just like vacationing but possibly a little more challenging! What is most difficult for the majority of us is letting go of one thing and waiting or jumping into the next thing. Then again there are some of us who leap easily and forget about the past readily. There is a middle path somewhere between the two, knowing that the flow of movement and change are part of our human lot and that if things remain the same they are also liable to become stagnant i.e. lose their life & smell pretty bad (just like stagnant water)!
