The End Is Only the Beginning
All things, good or bad, come to an end. Whether we’re experiencing the darkest moments of our life, or experiencing joy in its truest form, both find a way to their ending. However, what does an end mean? Does an end mean completely vanishing, or do endings have another meaning?
Endings are truly new beginnings; the kind of beginnings you truly need to function properly in your life, because if you didn’t see things ending, you wouldn’t find new things to start or take on. Then again, some endings like death cannot be explained easily. Death is the ultimate parting of humans from this world. Religiously, the thoughts of many would disagree on what happens after that parting, but this is one ending many of us don’t like to think about.
The idea of death is scary because we only see it as an end, but in reality, it’s not. Death is a force that should make us enjoy life while we still have the chance to live it. We’re constantly thinking about our difficulties and things falling out of place, when sometimes all we need to do is not to think about the hardships. There is no guarantee of how long we have on this earth, but as someone once told me, “Live in the present so that you can make your future better.” We certainly can’t change the past, but we can live in the moment and allow such moments to add up and make this life worth the while; so that when death finally finds its way to us, we have no regrets and leave this world with peace, and a heart that’s content.
Let’s try making death a beginning that makes us want to do more in this life. To live and let live. To make memories that make us want to look back at our lives with a smile on our face. We all have to leave this world, but how we depart completely depends on us. We can either leave by creating a legacy, or without making any noise. “The end is only the beginning”; the thought of leaving the world without creating an imprint is the end that makes us want to modify our beginnings, and live in the present, so that our marks won’t fade away even when we aren’t here anymore.
