I think that the end of the year is a time of reflection. A time to look back at our year and see what worked, what didn’t, and how we want to adjust for the upcoming year. While I agree with that exercise, I also think that some of us need to move on. Maybe you’ve been in a relationship that isn’t working out or maybe you have been stuck in a life situation and you know things could be better. My advice, move on. Here are my suggestions for moving on and starting a new chapter.
1. Give Yourself Permission
It really is okay to move on. Yes, there will be consequences and maybe some let downs; but, if you know deep down that you need to move on, then do so. Give yourself permission to make the change. No, I’m not saying that it is going to be easy. It might be really difficult, perhaps the hardest decision you have ever made. But you know what? Your future self will thank you for it.
2. Your Future Self Will Thank You
Let’s talk about that for a second. Unless you are a fortune teller and know exactly how your life will pan out (in that case, there’s no reason to continue reading), you really don’t know what your future holds. We don’t know what will happen if we continue to stay where we are and we don’t know what will happen if we decide to leave. In either case, the world will still turn, life will still happen. My vote? Make your life move with the universe. Decide that you are going to step out on the ledge and allow the world to create your life.
3. Let Go
It might be time to let go. Let go of the past. Let go of the negative patterns you keep finding yourself in. Get out. Move on. Let go of relationships that are affecting you. Stop allowing others to rule your life and to make decisions that you know are not right for you. Move on. Want to know the scariest part of moving on? Making the decision to do so. That’s the hardest part. When you are firmly set on your decision, the logistics tend to fall into place or the right people start showing up in your life.
My Take Away…
It’s time to move on. It‘s time to put the past life behind you and find your future. It’s not going to be easy for some of you; but, give yourself permission anyway. You have no idea what your future holds – maybe it’s time that you start to find out. Remember, the hardest part of moving on is making the decision to do so. Stand firm with your choice. Move on.
