There’s a lovely quotation ..”there’s a trick to the graceful exit. It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, a relationship is over – and to let go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance in our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving on, rather than out. It’s hard to realize life isn’t a holding action, but a process. We don’t leave the best parts of ourselves behind…we own what we learned back there. The experiences and the growth are grafted onto our lives. And when we exit, we can take ourselves along – quite gracefully.”
So, go with grace, my daughter.
