Hello and Goodbye

We are about to to say goodbye to 2015 and say hello to 2016.

What does hello and goodbye really mean to us? It means that we have to go through painful times – that moment of saying goodbye … moment when we felt pulled apart , moment when we knew the hurt of leaving behind, moment when we felt the emptiness that comes with deep loss… before we even experience the joy of “hello”.

We have been travelling the pattern of hello- goodbye human journey.

As we reflect on our journey over the past year, we too will relieve all of the significant pains we have experienced. Why pain? Human nature tells us that we remember the ones that made us cry… the ones that made us felt lonely and isolated… the ones we thought have caused us troubles…instead of usually remembering the ones that made us joyful.  It is the agonizing pain of remembering that made us move on slowly.  But once we had braved the sadness of goodbyes and understood fully the need to be strong to endure the deep emptiness that we would be able to walk the road of total abandonement. Anytime soon we have to finally face our own agony of 2015.  It may be the agony of finally forgetting that one goodbye kiss you had from a love one who betrayed you- it is a sledgehammer affront to your ego that rips apart your heart but you have to finally bid goodbye to that experience; it could be a goodbye to your most loved job… you were just let go, you were maybe also just fired, you may have also just been apprehended; it could be the last goodbye you had with a family member whi passed away; it could be the pain of the end of a wonderful friendship or relationship; it could be the goodbye of moving to new place and of meeting new friends and of building new realtionships. However bad the experience maybe still you have to just let it go and finally say goodbye to the pain you felt that day it happened. Goodbyes may come in different forms. Some maybe be bad but some goodbyes may also be for the best.

It is in goodbye that we appreciate hello.

2016 will be our next hello. May this be a wonderful and prosperous hello for all of us.

Happy New Year Everyone.

  3. Well said Mich!
    Your visit to my blog and commenting on my Fathers death Post did touch me.
    It happens to me every-time I read that Post and think of Him. As you have said it was time for us and him too to say Good Bye to this world.
    Let us see the best coming for us in 2016.
    I think you have to edit your post in the last line and make it 2016 instead 0f 2106.
    Love to You!
