Welcome to week 12 of The Weekly Well! Here is where you will find weekly inspiration to live your best life. This week I want to provide some inspiration and support to those of you out there that have a hard time embracing endings. It is oh so common to let our fear and uncomfortable feelings lead us down the long road of commas. What I mean friends, is we get to a juncture in our lives where we should place a period, but instead, our stinkin thinkin tricks us into placing a comma.
Am I talking to you?! Do you struggle with cutting the strings and just calling it a day? Do you chug along like a choo-choo train even though you know the end of tracks may be near?!
Well look, friends, there are plenty of times in life when perseverance is necessary and just putting one damn foot in front of the other is all we can manage. I am not talking about those times right now.
Let's talk about the times in life we know...I mean we really know that we have come to the ending of a sentence. We can feel that there should be a period, but we keep trying to change it to a comma. I promise you though, that there are moments, times, even chapters in our lives when the period is in place for a reason. This could be because:
- We have reached the ending of something that is no longer serving our best interests
- The universe, or God, is telling us, "ENOUGH."
- There is something significant waiting for us, but it is on another pathway
I Am Pretty Sure I know When My Endings Should Be
A lot of times our stinkin thinkin tells us that we know what is best and to fight like hell to turn that period into a comma. Friends, that is the fear of endings talking. Let me tell you what will happen if you ignore your intuition and keep adding those commas.
Your body will react.
It could start with a stomachache, then a headache, and eventually lead to insomnia, rapid heartbeat, and some terrible monkey brain that just won't shut off. Your body and soul will let you know what is up!
Let me reiterate what is important here:
If you reach a juncture in life where you are not meant to continue, but you choose to anyway, then your body is going to react.
Your job on this earth is so important! Stop, and hear what your soul is trying to tell you. If you were meant to continue on that path, then your body would not be having such a visceral reaction!
But. I am scared.
Of course, you are! Getting to any ending in life can be painful and scary, maybe even paralyzing. What I want to be frank about is that you shouldn't mistake those feelings as an indication to place a comma and trudge onward. Don't put a comma just because you are uncomfortable. Pay attention to your inner north star that is guiding you!
Just to be clear, these endings could be due to a relationship, career, or entire stage in our lives. It doesn't really matter the "what," it matters how we handle the punctuation! When you are coming up to the close of a chapter, please give yourself the grace to pause long enough to recognize if in fact there should be a period or a comma.
Do you want the good news now? Once you move past the period and uncomfortable feelings, there is going to be a phenomenal opening in your whole being. You will look back with confidence and know the reason and that you made the right choice.
Wrap It Up
Please know that I am with you and know without a shadow of a doubt that endings are hard to process. But. Also, remember that YOU, my friend are strong enough to forge right through any ending. Don't put a comma just because you are scared. Know that within you lies a whole ocean of strength, and you can put a period and move on!
Sometimes endings spark starting over. Often this is triggered by exciting and positive reasons, but sometimes because of less desirable ones. For some inspiration and advice for starting over, head on over to my blog post, Starting Over.
Without Further Ado, Here is the Twelfth Edition:
Before I leave you until next week, please don't add a comma just because you feel uncomfortable. Know that once you embrace the period, you will open up to all kinds of amazing potential. You got this, and I got you!
