Endings and New Beginnings: Accept and Let Go

Look at life mindfully and it becomes clear that every ending is a beginning and every beginning an ending. 
We celebrate many new year days - solar, lunar, Jewish, Asian, etc. But really, every day is the beginning of a new year, a time for resting in the present, reflecting on the past and looking at what lies ahead. Remembering this helps to avoid the pain of change by accepting what was and what is, and skillfully letting go into doing what you can do to influence the future. Accept that while you may have some influence you do not control the future.
