It’s natural to feel sad when something good comes to an end. Practically no one sees a good thing come to an end and says glad that’s over. Whether it’s a great experience, a good book or movie, or the life of a loved one, the more common response is to wish it weren’t over.
This quote, by Dr. Seuss (a.k.a Theodor Seuss “Ted” Geisel), can perhaps help us feel a little better when good things come to an end. Perhaps it’s easier said than done. Perhaps a good bout of tears is in order. But maybe after that, a smile can eventually surface as we begin to look back in gratitude that it happened.
