A happy part of my life ended this week.Posted: April 2, 2014
“Celebrate endings, for they precede new beginnings.” ~Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Regular readers know that for the better part of nineteen years I have worked in multiple capacities at KBEK 95.5 FM, the radio station my sister owns here in East Central Minnesota. (Longer, actually. I was involved with the pre-broadcast planning for the station, for several years before that.) In fact, anyone who has had more than a five-minute conversation with me knows how much I’ve always loved radio, and how much I derive from being part of it. As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m never as happy as I am when I’m on-the-air.
Sadly, that chapter has ended. The station ended broadcast operations effective midnight, March 31st.
I concur with this difficult decision. Having said that, though, I’m sad that it has to end.
So this is just another loss in the scheme of things. Change happens. Things can and will be different from how they are now. Circumstances will not turn out the way we want, and it’s perfectly all right. Ride the wave. Lean into it. Let it inform you. Stay present. Make it worth something.
And when you find something that you love to do, that makes your heart glad, and that you excel at – DO IT. Don’t let anything stop you.
