You are so right! This is a wonderful way to look at things and I am willing to commit to shift my perspective this way. Instead of lamenting (as I have done) the sadness of an ending friendship, I should think of it as an opening to invite new experiences and new people in my life!
Scary thought, but new and exciting always has an element of unknown!
Thanks for saying this, I really needed to hear this.
