Embracing Endings

I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending. Fred Rogers

I know New Year’s Eve is on the horizon but, for me, the excitement of the holiday season is mostly over. Tomorrow we will head back to Florida to re-enter our life there. I’ve loved the familiar story of our holiday season as we now know it. My addition of a Unicorn Tea and Cookie Decorating Party was great fun and Christmas Eve (my favorite night of the year) was perfect (see photo below). We spent time with adult kids, grands, great-grands and, as they say, “A good time was had by all.” 

Endings are bitter sweet. Although I’ll miss our family in the coming months, I’m ready to return to our beautiful home, warm weather, Florida friends, and the activities I enjoy. 

Affirmation: I embrace the bitter sweetness of endings.

Coaching questions: What is the story of your holiday season? How are you embracing the familiar ending?

  1. Enjoy your re-entry to Florida. And I was happy to notice that there was no trauma associated with your Illinois condo this trip. That is always a plus. Peace of the season to you and yours.
