Don't Stop

'Begin at the beginning,' the King said gravely, 'and go till you come to the end. Then stop.'
--Lewis Carroll

Now facing weight loss I have to say that Mr Carroll was very wrong. I feel that he is wrong with this comment in every aspect of life. Think about why we begin a journey just to stop it? Why start something if you will only wind up stopping. Better yet why start something that has an end? If you are to be working towards a goal, an accomplishment, a future of something better. Once you get there stopping means a digression back to what once was. If you arrive at a destination, will you stop there in your car and not keep going? will you reach the door and not open it? What lies on the other side of this door? Is there your future of is it your dream? What will become of something that has no follow through? Where will the end eventually lead you to?

Well first off I must say that with every beginning there is supposed to be an end. Yet I feel this statement only applies to one thing life, you are born (the beginning) and eventually we die (the end). Now what about in between, for surely that was what this king intended. In between there is many adventures that have beginning but I feel that there is no ending to them. When we start a project for school, Lets say its your Master's degree thesis, Well you start your research, you compile all your information. Your write an outstanding paper about whatever it might be. Now you have all this knowledge, you go out into the working world and you continue to use this knowledge grow with it, make money because of it, and add to it. There is no where that this thesis ends and you forget about it and it no longer impacts your life.

Lets say a simpler thing as a household repair, you fix a leaky sink, took all of 20 min and $20 lets say. That saves you money and effort. But it adds to your daily standard of living you can enjoy the kitchen knowing that you do not hear a constant drip that makes you want to leave. You are able to know that your accomplishments were worth your while. You help someone else with the knowledge of what you did and how easy it was. You have passes on good vibes to help someone else and they in turn are grateful towards you and may return a favor in the future.

Now did these events ever fully end? Was there any stop to them? Have you ever came to a place where you ended something? maybe a relationship? I have ended a relationship, but it never fully ended I still have a scar above my eyebrow as a constant reminder, I have memories of reasons to never want to do certain things. I know more and grew from said relationship. Did just ending the relationship stop there. I think not. It changed me as a person and made me grow more. I unwillingly remember things and know things, do things and so forth because of this relationship. So just because it is over doesn't mean it stopped. Doesn't mean my mind stopped thinking about it or that my memories disappeared. No nothing ever just stops at the end.

And even when we die, the legacy we leave, does that end? Does it stop when we stop breathing? Does everything go black just because we no longer exist? Or do our family and friends continue what has once been because we did, remember your grandma's cooking does your mom or aunts continue the recipe?

Don't be fooled by others who think that arriving at a destination means to end your experience, to end tradition, to end learning. Continue, live, love, laugh. Never stop!
