Last week, on Monday, a door that had been opened to me for about 12 years was closed. I did not lament for very long the end of something wonderful - I smiled that it had ever happened. Sorry to be vague, but this is a business matter and the names must be kept secret to protect the guilty! Haha.
Anyway, I learned many years ago about how to handle endings with grace. You smile. You say thank you. You say "all the best". And you mean it.
Then, you get busy with the knowledge that other opportunities will come along.
Well, wouldn't you know it. The very next day, opportunity knocked and I answered... with a vigor. Now, everything is heading in a new, exciting and much more prosperous direction.
Never ever give up. Not ever. And keep an open and active mind for what might come next and for what you can do proactively to bring about a new possibility. Always remain receptive to what it could be.
Of course, this applies in business, love, personal development, living location, education and more... Don't sweat any setbacks - keep on rolling. Serendipity happens if you let it.
