Nothing good comes from going backwards. Life is not meant to be lived in repeat mode.
Let go, search for happiness or let happiness find you, explore who you are – every inch of you.
Feel the pain, the fear, the grief and the sadness. Feel empty, lost, alone and scared. Feel it until you do not feel it anymore. Do what you have to, but never go backwards.
Nothing good comes from looking backwards.
“The past is like using your rear-view mirror in the car, it’s good to glance back and see how far you’ve come, but if you stare too long you’ll miss what’s right in front of you.”
Just keep going on your new journey and let your intuition guide you.
You see, if something ends, whether it be a job, a friendship or relationship, its because it was meant to. That is the way the Universe scripted it. If we don’t let it end, the lesson isn’t learned and we will keep experiencing the same pain, frustration or anxiety until we finally learn the lesson. To avoid this – move on and let go.
Nothing good comes from staying in the past.
Cycles repeat, people get hurt, the pain gets dragged out, the cuts get deeper and the wounds heal slower. Why prolong the inevitable. Why hold on to something that causes you pain. The same goes with holding on to anger or resentment.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
Letting go can be magical, if you allow it to be. Once you have grieved and then healed, once you have felt your pain and accepted your fate, you can move on with grace and even a little bit of excitement knowing that your life truly is a blank slate. You can start over and make this life whatever you want it to be.
You can start fresh, welcome new friendships and relationships, learn about yourself..who you are and what you like and desire (check out How well do you know yourself). You can choose to keep or let go of your friends, choose who you spend your precious time with, choose how people treat you. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
You are the writer of your own story. What will Chapter One look like?
Think of all your friends and family who are living a life they are not happy in but are too afraid to change it. I pity them, seriously I do. Life is so short, why be anything but happy.
So I encourage you to be that person who doesn’t let fear guide them.
Start writing your new story, now.
I can’t wait to read it.
