I am generally pretty optimistic and into seeing beauty and spiritual connections everywhere. Other times, I am a Cynical Cindy. Nothing gets my eyes rolling like meaningless platitudes.
I recently came across this quote:
“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye.
Life will reward you with a new hello.”
– Paulo Coelho
Ugh. Nope. Sorry. I don't think so. Not how that works.
Sometimes you say goodbye and are left with nothing but an empty hole in your guts, because that's just reality.
You might argue that, in this case, the "hello" the universe is rewarding you with is yourself.
That mayyyyyybe there was no external hello, but the act of bravely saying goodbye introduces you to a new side of yourself that you are delighted to meet. Sure, if that happens that's nice. It also doesn't always happen and it's not really the same thing.
Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Come on! Cynical Cindy is rolling her eyes SO MUCH!
