At the end of another school year, pause and ask yourself: How much of our lives do we spend preparing for and dwelling on endings? It seems like I have spent so much of my life waiting for things to end. I just wanted to get home from school, just make it to the weekend, then we couldn’t wait until summer vacation. … When we finally graduate the cycle starts over: just let me get home from work, make it to Friday, maybe a couple of measly weeks of vacation, then just make it to retirement. … In the meantime, maybe we can find some temporary relief – which only reminds you that it is all too short and quickly passing away.
