Transitions often comes with big occasions like birthdays, weddings, and graduation. On this occasions, we are forced to grow up, to take on bigger challenges, and be more accountable for greater responsibilities. Sometimes, changes occur over a duration of time. It can be during a trip, over summer, or through days and days of walking between menial tasks.
But, sometimes, the biggest transitions are the subtle ones- the ones that happen in the middle of nowhere. Some of them occur in a skip of a heartbeat, a mid-sentence pause, or when you just suddenly realise “i cant be living my life this way anymore.” The thing is, changes are a part and parcel of life. You see, it’s nature’s way of ensuring balance as every person paves their own path. Imagine, a million people playing the musical chairs of life.
However, the saddest thing is when you are not around to see any of these changes. Suddenly, at the blink of an eye, everything changes and the things which used to be there are now gone. We cannot blame anyone for this. Sometimes, the clock just ticks and things just change. It’s a natural phenomena. Sometimes, the turn over is as clear as turning the page of a book to the next chapter. Or, perhaps, the confusing system of the massive social networking world somehow misses you on the litany of people to “update”.
But the important thing to remember is that, every ending is a new beginning. So, fret not. Cry just a drop. and, believe that every change, every movement, is meant to be. And, no matter how many mirror cracks you are stepping on now, eventually, every thing will fall into place. After all, if things change for the worse, it also implies that thing CAN change for the better. My dear friend, all’s well and ends well, one page at a time.
