In life, good-byes are a gift.

When people walk away from you and opportunities close their doors on you, there is no need to hold onto them or pray to keep them present in your life.

If they close you out, take it as a direct indication that these people, circumstances and opportunities are not part of the plan for the next step of your life.

It's a hint that your personal growth requires someone different and something more.

Life is simply making room.

So embrace your good-byes, because every "good-bye" you receive sets you up for an even better "hello."
