Endings are usually sad. It does not matter if its between co-workers, school mates, lovers or parents and their children. And today is an ending like this yet there is something we all forget. Everything in life is in motion and so are the endings. Endings mean that we have ended a chapter in our life but it also means that we can move forward, upgraded and create that kind of beginnings we have always wished for the minutes after a finished project, a separation or someones death. The important part is that we are still here. We can still thrive, inspire. move forward using our past experiences to enhance our future, the future of our friends, neighbours and children.

And to me that kind of ending took place today but even, days,months or years ago. The fascinating thing about endings is that we did not actually got an ending. We had definitely experienced setbacks but we are still in the initiation phase of our new beginning. Today as the course Challenge-driven Innovation with Design Thinking is over I have gathered so many insights after so many reflections on various types of subjects. Today I know things which I did not know yesterday and I know that life is like a huge kinder surprise egg. You never know what you get. All you know is that you either repeat getting the same kind of experieces or get a completely new experience you’ve never imagined you could get like ever in your life. The important thing is to evaulate everything, to add meanings, to reflect, question our actions and how these are connected to the final results and how could we do differently, is something is missing ?

But the question I find most important one should ask themselves is :

Do I like the outcome of it and how it shaped me as a colleague, parent, individual?

If not how do I change these things ? How do I make my new beginnings more fulfilling? Had I really given myself a chance to be the brand new me ?

See you tommorow with a new post !
