A new beginning

A new notebook 

As I embark on a new adventure 

A new beginning 

A new phase in my life

 

Venturing south

Seeking the sun

Looking for community 

Looking for camaraderie

 

As my children begin to fly away

It’s time for me to look around

Assess things

And start new ventures as well

 

There is sadness in loss

But joy in new possibilities 

 

It’s time to give in a different way

To be of service in a different way

 

I see the open road in front of me

And I’m ready to embark on this journey

Change

Ends are beginnings
Beginnings that will end
So, I welcome the ends
As I do the beginnings
Because therein lies serenity

Seasons change
Routines change
Responsibilities change
Opportunities change
The only constant in life
Seems to be change

Don’t mourn the loss of what was
Too long
Look for opportunity
In what’s to come

The state we are in
Is temporary anyway
It won’t be long
Before it changes again!
