It’s such an interesting concept…completing something.
Whatever goal or accomplishment you aspire to finish, there’s so many directions or outcomes that can follow.
We often believe completing something should be celebrated, but that’s not always the case.
A woman or man can be a terrible cook. So when the meal is done, the response might be calling for take out. Pleased by the attempt, but not brave enough to consume it.
Finishing a degree is impressive. But, how many people do you know that are working in a field that has zero to do with their education?
Celebrating the end of a marriage has become a newer practice. As a child of divorce, I still don’t get that.
My husband made a dining room table fifteen years ago and it’s where we have had so many celebrations and good talks. I’m grateful he completed that.
I can easily finish a sleeve of thin mint girl scout cookies (I’m no quitter), but sometimes guilt follows…or, a big glass of milk. 🙂
I muse about how finishing a goal is often the beginning of something else. I’m not sure we ever cross a “finish line.”
Life seems to be much more about beginnings.
I like those better.
Have a great weekend, friends!! I love you! ❤
