I’ve long said, “Life is a series of ‘Hellos’ and ‘Goodbyes’, and the sooner we learn to do it gracefully, the better”. How do you handle the transitions of people coming and going in your life? Is it smooth and easy, hard and bumpy, or an emotional “white-knuckle” express? We tend to think of “Hellos” and “Goodbyes” in absolute terms, but it’s not that black-and-white. We’ve all had those brand-new relationships where the “Goodbye” at night felt like the end of the world, even though we knew the next “Hello” was only hours away in the morning. We say “Hello” and “Goodbye” to the various phases of life, and to the coming and going developmental stages of children as they grow. See how that works? Every “Hello” leads to a “Goodbye”, and I believe that every “Goodbye” leads to a new “Hello”, eventually, and that’s hope! Simple Encouragement® is graceful and hopeful as life ebbs and flows. Go ahead and jump in the stream! The water is just fine.
