An Unexpected Ending -> A New Beginning

An Unexpected Ending -> A New Beginning

When we see that our plans, relationships or assets have been swept away by some crisis, we normally feel worried, overwhelmed, disappointed and even go into depression.

When we attach ourselves to things, ideals, fantasies and other people's expectations, we are bound to feel like it’s the end of the world when disaster strikes.




Unexpected Endings: Be Aware, And Let Go

  • We all have a past that may have moments of anger, sadness, frustration, regret and other painful emotions, but we can either delve into it and feel bad, or can watch it closely, being aware of the same, and learn to let go of it, living in the present moment instead.
  • We are not victims, but barely witnesses to the tragedy that happened.
  • Accept reality, being in the present moment, and let go of the past.



Focus On Love And Hope

Whatever miserable situations have arisen due to the ongoing pandemic and the resulting hardships like disease, loneliness, loss of job, or loss of a loved one, is not a reason to give up, or to cloud your vision.

There is love, hope and self-care that is still there. If you are alive and healthy, that is a big reason to celebrate right now.



Relive A Bad Situation And Review It

Revisiting our past for a specific bad situation can sound like something that will stir your negative emotions. Even if it does, one can see that there has been undue self-blame, and other feelings bottled up in that memory, which need to be released.

We need to think better about our past and present circumstances, and live on. Everybody has scars.



Embracing Your Grief

Grief, especially when it concerns losing a loved one, is a burden that is devastating, but can be an anchor for our self-healing and growth in the long run.

One can slowly get over the pain of the loved one and use constant memory as a driver towards a better life.



Respond In A New Way

Life will only get better when we respond to it in a better way.

We need to respond better towards our life situations, as that is also part of our growth, learning, and the wisdom we have attained. Life is not static, and neither should be our response towards it. Our weapons are our ability to pause and witness life, and the choice we have over our response.

Creativity And Awareness

The practical application of creativity requires the help of our logical left side of the brain.

Although we perceive that our creative right side of the brain is solely responsible for all of our creative ideas, it is not. Creativity requires a particular level of understanding of the knowledge at hand. Our logical side analyzes the situation, defines the problem, and hands over the data to be expressed by the creative right brain.

Confidence And Creativity

Being creative requires you to do things you've never done before or seek the unknown. It is a risk in itself and a lot of people are not willing to accept the risk that comes with the creative process or are just afraid.

Confidence is the key. Having confidence in yourself and your ideas will allow yourself to accept the risks, calculated or not.
