Behind the Blog 33: Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning's End


Behind The Blog is a meme to help bloggers connect their life and interests to the content showcased on their blog. The co-hosts Faye Kathe and Melissa will provide a different topic, idea, or question every week that bloggers can relate to themselves and the books, films, or media they find interesting!


As we approach the end of this year, we want to talk about the year which has passed. Did you learn anything this year? Do you have any days or moments that will stay with you forever? And finally, how does it feel to finally say goodbye to one year and hello to another?

In relation to media, are there any books or filns that had powerful endings that will stick with you forever? Or are there any sequels that you're looking forward to starting in 2013?

This year I learned that you can never be fully prepared for the things that life has to throw at you. Things can be humming along, same old, same old,  and the next thing you know life has thrown a curve ball and things will never be the same. This year has also reinforced the fact that you should never take anything, or anyone, for granted. If you have things to say to someone, say them.  You never know what may happen and if you don't, you'll be left wondering what they would have thought if you had said or did something to let that person know how you felt.

If there are things you want to do, do them. You don't want to go through life wondeirng, "What if?"

There are a few moments of this year that will stay with me forever. Some good, some, not so great. Such is life, though. It's the bad times that really make you appreciate the times of happiness. The sad days are the hardest to get through, but the good days are worth it, when it all comes down to it.

I must say that I will not be at all sad to see 2012 go in a few days. This year certainly did not turn out the way I thought it might, at all. I truly hope that 2013 will bring better things, for myself, and for all those around me as well.

Books and Movies:

One movie ending that always sticks with me is the end of Godfather III. Michael is at the end of his life, alone, remembering all the things he had, and ultimately, because of his business, lost. 

Another one is Rocky IV. Rocky is the ultimate series for the underdog, and it shows that if you try hard enough, you can come out  on top. And the end in particular is a proponent for change, which is always good with the start of a new year.

What books and movie endings have stuck with you? Which sequels are you looking forward to in 2013?
