The Semi-Sonic Song Closing Time states “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”
What is truly an end? There’s a means to an end, the end of sporting events and games, end of a day, month, year, etc.
Time is measured more quickly now. The end of a news cycle used to be 24 hours. Now news cycles don’t usually last more than a few hours (if that).
Throughout out life we begin and end relationships. If we are lucky at some point we find the person we want to spend the rest of our life with. That either ends our pursuit of a meaningful relationship and end of dating or the marriage might end in divorce.
When we say something is ending we frequently view this as a negative. As Semisonic stated each ending can merely be the start of something.
We all lament things ending in our life. We might miss our childhood house and neighborhood, a job, a group of friends we used to see more often or a past partner.
All of these endings provided us with new opportunity.
