Our lives are an epic novel, the people we meet are characters. Some characters stay for a sentence. Some stay for a chapter, or many chapters. Some characters appear solely to move the story along, or change its course. Some characters are recurring. Some remembered fondly, others, quickly forgotten. Some are heroes. Sometimes villains are written in to make us stronger.
When you find yourself in the midst of stagnation, or sudden change, it means a chapter is ending and thus, a new one must begin for your story to continue.
The beginning of a new chapter can be energizing or terrifying.
Often the end of a chapter can be heartbreaking.
Thankfully there a times when the end of a chapter is a relief.
