Thoughts on Moving On


Things don't always work the way we want it to be.

Because life was never meant to be perfect. Shit happens. There will always be those days in your life when you have been wronged or have made decisions you regret. Days when you've poured too much of your time, effort, and invested a lot of emotion on something - a relationship, a job, or anything you've committed yourself into - and yet, things don't come your way. There are days you'd feel down, disappointed, or devastated. And days when slumping into the dumps felt more comforting than anything else.

But no matter what you do, there is no way you can ever change those days that happened in your life. You can only linger for too long on the pain, and that's just about it. Pain will always be part of who we are. What defines us, however, is how to see the way things are and how we react on them. So, you can either choose to stay down in deep shit, or just look on the brighter side, stand up, and move on. Because either way, you will eventually get out, and you would certainly be not the same person anymore. So choose to be the better one.

Someday, all the things that happened in your life will be but memories. You'll forget the pain, the reason you're hurt, and who caused you those tears. You will realize that those things of the past are the ones weighing you down on your journey; that there is no way you can embrace the new life you want if you are still holding on to the baggages of the past; that the secret to attaining peace within yourself is being free. Free of grudges, bitterness, and hatred. Let go of those baggages and let a new life unfold before you.
Don't let yesterday consume all the time you have today. After all, what really matters is not how you begin your journey but how well you made it through and how you ended it. Life is beautiful. So look on the brighter side of life, forgive, and love all over again. :)

  2. Thank you for your post! You honestly don't know how much this helped me this morning. I tend to dwell and let yesterday get the best of my today which ends up me not being as happy as I strive to be.
    I appreciate you being open about this!

  3. I agree. Sometimes you have to just drop everything and move on because yesterday really does consume you.

    Good read!

  4. Thank you so much for such an important reminder. As you said, it can be so hard to move on whe you've invested so much of yourself into something. I know I definitely struggle with this on a regular basis, but the alternative is being weighed down and not really being able to move on. Really great post that came at the perfect time!

  5. This is so great. Sometimes it seems like it can be so hard to move on and be in the present because, as you say, Shit happens... and you can't control it. But you just have to keep moving forward because it's all we have, right? live life to the fullest - today! Thanks for sharing!

  12. You're right... but it is still painful...even if it disappears eventually with time... Yet I'm convinced that all the things that happen they do have a reason!

  14. Good read! Shit happens, but life goes on. Whatever makes you feel bad, leave it. Whatever makes you smile, keep it.

  16. Inspiring post. Moving on may be hard to do but there's no other way to help yourself. You're right, pain will always be a part of us but we don't need to linger for so long in that state. It's not how many times we get hurt, it's how we manage to get up, move on, and focus on the things that make us happy.

  17. Until now, it is still had for me to let go on the past relationship I had with my friends but as you said, I won't let it ruin my time today. I just chose to let go some people in my life.

  18. I know moving on is a difficult task but we have to. Journey will be easier if. Just like what you said, time will come that we will just laugh on it and it will become just part of the past where we learn our lessons.
