Change your name to Miss Movin’ On.
We are all guilty of staying around in something that was really meant to end. Maybe you spent a few months too many in a toxic romantic relationship. Or maybe you moved back home with your parents after college and just found yourself stuck there after a few years. Maybe you are at a dead end point in your career and need a fresh start. Maybe you are having a bad week.
Whatever the case is, learning how to acknowledge the past but move on into the future is one of the hardest tasks anyone can overcome. We are all creatures of habit in some respect. Wanting things to stay the same is a natural response to the fear that it brought up from the idea of things changing. We are here to remind you that change is a good thing!
Taking a leap of faith in a new place or finally calling it quits in your relationship can feel liberating at the moment. But once the adrenaline fades, we all need a little helping hand to keep us on the path to success. Once the clock strikes one in the morning and you are alone in your bed, you feel the weight of your decisions. Sure, you know it was in your best interests but having so much change around you can be incredibly jarring for anyone to take in.
Journaling is an incredibly useful tool. Writing out everything you are thinking and feeling can be your ticket to a clear head and a light heart. Remember that in transitional times, such as these, being honest with yourself and your needs should be at the forefront of your mind. Put yourself first after a time where others were putting you last.
So, when you find yourself deep in your feels about whatever has got you down and you need a friendly remind of the fierce boss that you are, turn to this list of strength quotes about starting over. In no time, you’ll be back on your A-game and ready to take this new chapter of your life by the horns.
