Only by moving forward can we accept our present and come to peace with the past.
One footstep in front of the other (and repeat).
Whether your path is straight and narrow or far and wide, as long as your putting one foot in front of the other your progressing into a better version of yourself.
Don’t let anyone or anything drag you down.
I’ve learned that moving forward for me is leaving baggage behind.
There are new and better loves to find in all things you believe are irreplaceable.
If any of these people or things are distributing your light, leave them behind.
Your partner will follow, if they want to. Same with your friends.
Employees are replaceable, like a revolving door. Treat your jobs the same way. (Three warnings against them, leave, you are your own boss)
As for lifestyle, find peace with the smaller things in life. A video game that occupies your kids brains for hours will “Make them happy”. But a trip to the beach will be what they remember when they’re older.
Be brave and look at yourself with love and respect.
You deserve anything and everything your heart desires, go get it!
Your future is yours.
Make it light and fun.
Those dark paths are part of the journey, but not the full journey.
Remember, to quote the wonderful man who is Albus Dumbledore;
“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light”
