The Beginning of a Happy Ending

Daily Prompt: Happy Endings Tell us about something you’ve tried to quit. Did you go cold turkey, or for gradual change? Did it stick?

Happy Endings
The Circles of my Life

My life as a compilation of circles of events shows the journey of life-stages. Each stage-of-life repeats lessons until learned, then expands/branches off into a new circle – such as infancy learns all lessons associated with it then expands, arrives at a happy ending as it branches off into a new circle – childhood.

Each stage of my life is filled with sub-circles, lessons appropriate for that particular life-stage being lived. Not every circle, or life-lesson, concludes with a happy ending, in fact, some appear to conclude as un-happy endings at the time, still necessary for evolution to the next life-stage and as a whole, contributes to each happy ending.

My circles intersect, can be traced back to the very first circle, my very first ‘happy ending’ – being born, when I ‘quit’ being a fetus. On the day of my birth, I went ‘cold turkey’ and plunged into this world headfirst and so far, being birthed has stuck.

  10. Just because an ending isn’t the one we would have chosen doesn’t automatically make it bad … and I guess that’s one of the biggest lessons life teaches us. Good piece.
