Necessary Endings...

"Holding on is believing that there's only a past; letting go is knowing that there's a future." -Daphne Rose Kingma

"All endings are inexorably tied to new beginnings. That's the nature of the journey. It continues to unfold.  It builds on itself.  It can't help itself from doing that. Cherish the moments, all of them. You have seen and felt much in life so far.  But still, the best is yet to come." -Melody Beattie

"Letting go means letting be, not throwing things away. Letting go implies letting things come and go, and opening to the wisdom of simply allowing, which is called nonattachment." -Lama Surya Das

"People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar." -Thich Nhat Hanh

"Every morning, when we wake up, we have twenty-four brand-new hours to live. What a precious gift! We have the capacity to live in a way that these twenty-four hours will bring peace, joy, and happiness to ourselves and others."
 -Thich Nhat Hanh

"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." -C.S. Lewis.

"I simply cannot imagine what my life would look like if I continually held onto the past...fearing to let go and missing out on what the future holds."
