Life can change at any moment. Transitions are changes, shifts, movements in some new direction. You say goodbye to something and hello to something else.
Sometimes you are prepared and ready to say goodbye. Sometimes you are unprepared and you are blindsided. So, some hellos and goodbyes are calm and some are stormy.
Transitions can cause heartbreak or bring joy and reasons to celebrate. Transitions can be hard on you.
