Within Without Advice endings


Here we are at the end of our stay in Spain so it seems only fitting that my Word of the Week is endings.

It’s been tough, the last few days have been triggering for me and I am in the midst of a depressive episode because of our imminent return ‘home.’ All good things must come to an end though, isn’t that what they say? So this week has been about packing and last times and now, endings.

Of course it’s not only my holiday that has come to an end, but the month of March and, with it, the Within Without Advice Tarot challenge too. While I haven’t taken part every day, I have found the within, without, advice spread to be a very interesting one that goes a lot deeper than one might expect.Within Without Advice endings

I was thinking about taking part in a new Tarot challenge on Instagram in April but I think I’ll take a break from it, especially as for 4 days I’ll be in the car, travelling.

Endings are hard, I think most of us would agree with that, and often finding the courage to turn the page, to start a new chapter, is equally hard. For me it always is, change and I, in general, do not get on. Endings and I certainly don’t. But life keeps reminding me that things end, all things, but one day I hope I’ll deal with it much better than I do now. Practice makes perfect and all that!

Maybe I need to look on it less as an ending and more as a new beginning. Not going back to the old, but heading forward to the new.

How do you deal with things ending? Do you look forward in hope and expectation, awaiting the next challenge or amazing event? Or are you more like me and struggle with endings?

    Sorry to hear you’re struggling. I like change myself, as I do see endings as new beginnings and am usually quite keen to turn the page, though I suppose like anything, it depends on exactly what’s ending. I hope you do manage to see it as a new prospect and you have a safe journey home x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    It’s hard when you’ve been looking forward to something then it’s over. I like to have something to focus on and tick off the days
    Hope you’ve had a lovely time xx #wotw

    Sorry to hear you are not too good at the moment. Sending hugs!
    I don’t like change and things to end but new beginnings are good….Stay positive. x

    Sending hugs and best wishes for the new beginning, but if I’m honest I wouldn’t be relishing four days in the car either. Hope it’s not too tortuous #wotw

    I know how endings can be so sad to think about. But I love your idea or turning it into something positive by looking at it as a new beginning. A new chapter. #wotw
