it's a quote I heard the other day. "Life is not a series of endings but a series of moments."
it's true. Life never ends. There are things, pieces of your life, relationships, jobs, vacations, who knows what else that are not really a start or end to your life, they are simply a moment in your life. None of them have the power on their own to end our life, only the power we give them.
Some moments are harder, more fun, longer, more important than others, but our lives are made up of all of them. Maybe if we stopped looking at certain hard things as "the end of it all" and instead as simply a moment that is both occurring yet passing things won't bother us so much.
Just a thought.
