I took this photo in October of 2014 when life was at one of those points that I could not tell the difference between the smudges and the beauty of my world. I was sitting on the shore at Myrtle Beach, SC at sunset and all that I could caption the photo with was “sunsets are nature’s way of telling us that everything comes to an end.”
While I still hold this to be true, I am now able to see why so many chapters have had to end in my life. When the sun sets, when a chapter ends, we are simply preparing for the sunrise when things will start anew. Every day, we are given this beautiful opportunity. Every day something ends but something new begins. Take in each experience as if it is about to end and celebrate each moment as if it is the first time you have ever had such an experience.
We never know what the sunset will wash away but we can be certain that the sunrise will bring another day.
Take it all in. The beauty is not in the beginning or the end but rather in between!
