The ones you start with

The ones you start with are rarely the ones you finish with.

The ones you start with catch the vision, but they tire of situations (even good ones) quickly.

The ones you start with always challenge the status quo, which makes them perfect for starting but not so perfect for maintaining.

The ones you start with are easy to love. (The trials of starting something bond you quickly.) And when they go, you question if work and love should ever meet.

(In my opinion, they should.)

The ones you start with have dreams of their own. Whether they know it or not, they’re with you to learn—to protect their future selves from making the mistakes you make.

The ones you start with are rarely the ones you finish with. But they need you as much as as you need them. So, start. And when the time is right, let them go. And when they go, share one last lesson—that the ones they start with will rarely be the ones they finish with.
