Sometimes in life, goodbyes are a gift! – By Jane Oma


Sometimes in life, goodbyes are a gift! Yes, you heard me right.

There will be times when people will walk away from you, and opportunities will close their doors on you.

You might think it hurts, and sometimes, it will, but the truth is that when people walk away from you, you should know to let them go.

Sometimes, there is absolutely no need to hold on to them or pray to keep them present in your life.

Certain people will make the choice to shut you out.

Certain doors will be banged in your face.

Some opportunities will slip through your fingers.

Years will come and go. And with them, you will have to count your losses and your gains.

And when this happen, because it will, understand and take it as possibly a direct indication that these people, circumstances and opportunities might not be part of the plan for the next step of your life.

Understand that if these people hadn’t gone, if those opportunities hadn’t been missed, the choices you would have made, would have been different. Not necessarily better or worse. Just different.

Understand that it might be a hint that your personal growth requires someone different and something more, and life is simply making room.

So quit whining about your losses.

Embrace your changes as they happen.

Make room for better happenstance.

Because, you see every “goodbye” you give or receive leaves the doors open for an even better “hello.”

So, when you need to, just say “goodbye” so you are able to say “hello”!

P.S: When you do find the ones worth holding on to. Also know to position yourself well, so as not to ever have to say goodbye.

Please feel free to share with me your personal experiences, inspirations and motivations.
