All Good Things

“All good things must come to an end.” This aphorism seems to hold true to the tests of time. As much as we wish otherwise. We want those specific golden moments (minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades…) to remain for eternity, sometimes holding on to them like security blankets, until they are well past their prime. We wish for these golden moments would stay golden forever, even when we know it cannot happen.

However, there is no exclusionary clause contained in this aphorism saying we cannot mine new gold from the ever-rich earth. Excuse this extended metaphor, but there is more gold to be found, gold that is just as good as the last, if not more valuable. Just because some has been extracted does not mean the ground is not brimming with more! We must learn to stop hording those golden memories of the past and allow ourselves to cherish them, while continuing seeking new gold. Forge new relationships. Begin new adventures. Start new chapters. Coasting on past memories is not enough. All good things must end, but once one does– begin another!

While I have trouble practicing what I preach, I have a feeling that life would be more worthwhile this way.
