Endings, beginnings, life

Endings

Why are endings so hard?

We should be masters

Everything ends.

Baby

First the womb

Then the breast

Or bottle, depending

Diapers

Soother

Stroller

Midnight snuggles

Elementary

Innocent imagination

Friendship without agenda

Playing with toys

Middle

Budding breasts

First period

First boyfriend

Hormone fights

This is the end of the beginning.

High school

Independence

Attitude

Virginity???

First view of future

Twenties

High school without boundaries

Knowing everything without knowing you know nothing

Veil lifting

First job

First love

First orgasm – don’t lie

Marriage

Wedding- so much planning, over so fast

Honeymoon

First house

Children

Births – miraculous torture

First steps

First words

Preschool

School years

Empty nest

Sad freedom

First view of legacy

Nostalgia

It all went so fast

Retirement

Adventure, at first

Money, an issue

Health, sneaks up

Full circle

Decisions

Confusion

Hand over

The end.

Beginnings are endings. Endings are beginnings.

Endings, beginnings, life

  2. WOW…😳 WHAT a post… This one took my breath away AND helped me clarify a ‘feeling’ I have had lately but couldn’t put into words. I am happily in my (now-going-on-late) 50s and was lately trying to formulate why I would NEVER go back to my twenties. You NAILED it: “Knowing everything without knowing you know nothing”. I loved every single word of this post…thank you…

    1. Thank you, Patti. I’m so glad it resonated with you. It made me feel better to write it out, which is why we all do this writing thing right? Ugh, I would never want to go back to my 20s either, my oldest is just entering that phase. 🤭

      1. My two are smack-dab in the middle of it…😳 Nothing you can do but stand back and let them ‘become’. And be there, when they deign to ask for your advice or support…😊❤️ Yes, you and I appear to be on similar paths with regard to writing. Can’t believe I waited this long…😊😊😊

      2. Oh boy, fun times for you. That’s generally been my philosophy with my kids, to take the cue from them. It is fascinating to watch the transformation as they become. I say that to myself about writing my all the time, but at least we got there, right? 😊💕
