Hello 2015, Goodbye 2014

This morning as I awaken to a brand new year, I find myself humming the words to an old Beatles song, “Hello, Goodbye” – “You say goodbye and I say hello – hello, hello – I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello…”

I think The Beatles understood that in life, goodbyes are a gift.  When certain people walk away from you, and certain opportunities close their doors on you, there is no need to hold onto them or pray to keep them present in your life.  If they close you out, take it as a sign that these people, circumstances and opportunities are not part of the plan for the next step of your life.  It’s an indication that your personal growth requires something different or something more, and life is simply making room for it.  So embrace your goodbyes, because every “goodbye” you receive sets you up for an even better “hello.”
