Life is about as many firsts as it is lasts. Both can be scary. Both can be intimidating. Both can be sad. But, most importantly, both can be full of energy and life. We can choose to view the "last time" as a loss of some kind. OR we can choose to view it as the transition to our next next. It's OK to grieve over a last time, but don't dwell in the grief. If whatever we experience for the last time wasn't happening, we'd be dead. We'd be standing still. We'd be stagnant. We'd be missing out on life.
