FINDING CLOSURE IN YOUR LIFE
You never know when it’s going to come or if it ever will, but boy when it does, what a sense of relief and peace it brings with it! Closure in life, love and relationships is like reading the very last page of a book. You finally understand how and why it all came to the end. You enjoyed the read, but you were always excited to find out how it would play out (isn’t that why you started with it in the first place?). Once you realize it’s done, you close the book and you are ready for the next read and the next new book. Don’t get me wrong, some books leave you hanging, just like some situations in life that you just have to figure out your own made up ending.
I don’t know if It’s just that I’m finally ready to move back to California or just that I think more deeply about life, purpose and love as I get older, but I have found closure in so many ways lately. Things and people I once found joy in, I no longer do. I have run into a few former exes that I had always questioned if my decisions were correct back then… Finally I realize with one, we will never be on the same page and timing is everything. With the other, I think is just a connection that many times I thought was more, but is now obvious to me will never go anywhere. Bottom line, the person you are meant to be with will jump at the chance to be with you no matter what and won’t just shower you with compliments.
As you get older, you realize that being happy, loving where you live and surrounding yourself with people that support your dreams are truly essential. Sometimes we sacrifice our happiness for work & money, to be closer to family etc. but in reality, eventually your heart will always lead and ache for where it wants to be. I’ve waited a long time to feel a sense of closure and peace with where I am now, so that I can move on. This last couple of months, I finally see it, feel it and for some reason know it in my gut, there’s some good things waiting ahead for me when I take this leap of faith.
Closure comes in so many forms, whether it be “chance” encounters that show you, closed doors that teach you, and gut instincts that guide you. Pay attention, because these things are part of the journey in leading you to where you need to be. It might take time, but I think we always end up just where we are supposed to be.
