"There is no beginning. There is no end. There is only change." ~ Robert Monroe
It is comforting to think of life as a continual process of change. Resolutions do not have to have sharp edges of beginning (This year I will always ...) or ending (I pledge to never . . .) . We live through a series of letting go - Change always involves a form of grief. Looking at change as a normal part of life is a peaceful and gentler way of grieving.
Last year we had to say goodbye to Suki. Her death was not the end of our relationship, it was a change. Our memories strengthen our connection to Suki and loving her has created a space for more love. This year we are preparing for a beginning- somewhere in this pile of puppies is a Marotta. *We know he will have his own spirit and his own tale (tail) to tell (wag). Soften the edges of change this week.
I can accept change with peacefulness.
*Naming and more photos will be forthcoming in February.
