Frequently when we have to, or feel we have to, say goodbye to someone or something we feel sad and bereft, as if life will never be the same again. Whether we continue on our way or not life will never be the same in any case; time marches on and we must do so also. But leaving or parting does not, and generally is not, a permanent thing. Rather than weeping oceans of tear, feeling sorry for ourselves at parting, or stamping the ground in anger for more than a few minutes it is better allow that quick expression of feelings, then move on to the next piece of life or person ahead of us, knowing that we have not said a final goodbye, but merely said sometime again, so long, or ’til next time. This offers us yet another chance at anticipation and positive planning, a brighter look at the future. And who wouldn’t want that?
