There’s wealth in endings.

I can see everything I am leaving behind before I step through the door into the next room – all the old comforts. But today is the day to turn fully toward the new, the day to step into the new. I don’t know what is on the other side of this door, but I do know that The Gift Must Move, that wealth is mobile, that abundance doesn’t stagnate. I am a facet of the Universe and thus, I am wealth and abundance, and I too must keep moving to keep the energy flowing.

I must trust enough to step through death into growth.
