All Good Things Come to an End

27 Jun

At the moment I’m going through transitions both personally and professionally.  It’s very challenging to say the least.  Co-workers I have been friends with for years are leaving me behind for bigger and better opportunities.  New employees are coming in and I worry about the office dynamic and whether they will be a good addition or create a toxic work environment.  I worked in a department previous to this one where none of the employees got along and you could cut the tension with a knife.  It was complete misery to go into work each day and face the prospect of dealing with these people for nine hours.

On the home front, we are selling our home and downsizing to a townhouse or apartment.  We have a large home on a nice, private lot in a great area.  I thought we would live here forever but now that my husband has decided to pursue a music career full-time, we can no longer afford it.  I feel like we’re taking a big step backwards and it sucks.

Why do all good things have to come to an end?  Why cant the good times just go on forever?  Would it get boring after a while?  Do we need change to shake things up and make us appreciate the good in life?

I had it so easy when I was younger.   A normal run-of-the-mill upbringing followed by an uneventful college career and first marriage.  There were no rocky moments.  Everything was average and predictable.  Granted, my life didn’t rock the rafters, but it was easy…simple.  Now, I’m on some crazy amusement park ride that sometimes I’d just like to get off and go home.

I guess we just need to cherish the good times and value our relationships and know that there will be bumps in the road.  Life is unpredictable and at times messy, but I guess I’d rather be on the roller coaster than the Ferris wheel…well, maybe the kiddie roller coaster.
