Good Endings

How is it going to end? You can ask that about a lot of things in life. Books, business ventures, ball games, and… ballets? Enough of the b’s, my point is that great endings can really change the outlook of an entire event.

For example, I really enjoy watching baseball. Yeah, yeah, I know a lot of them are juiced up cheaters, but for the ones who aren’t and for the shear genius that is the game of baseball, it has very exciting moments. It also has very dull ones. The other day, I watched a game between the Nationals and Mets. It was a very boring game until the last inning. It had such a good ending that I was even glad I watched the first 2 1/2 boring hours. It made it seem worth it.

And what about a great endings? About Schmitt starring Jack Nicholson has one of the greatest endings I’ve ever seen. The majority of the movie is very dry, sad, and at times embarrassing. But what an ending. I’d like to say more but I don’t want to ruin it.

The take away from this, is that I hope whatever it is you are doing today, tomorrow, or even this year has a great ending. Put forth your best efforts and when you come out on top, it can make the gray days you experienced seem brighter. Here’s to good endings.
