“We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here now with the power to shape your day and your future.”

~ Steve Maraboli

It’s easy to get stuck when your own suffering is familiar and safe, but remember, you are the only one that decides when to move on.

The rest of your life might just be waiting for you.

So “let’s drink to moving on.”

Enjoy this beautiful song by Grand National:


Moved on to clear the air,
Just to be alone,
We’re perfect on our own,
Settle down,
Try not to clean it up,
I’m ready in my time,
I’m here i’m doing fine,
Settle down my friend.

Stepped on my toes and let me down,
Been sending messages around,
Not quite ready now.

No need to bottle up,
It’s over and it’s done,
Let’s drink to moving on.
Settle down my friend.
Settle down my friend.

Stepped on my toes and let me down,
Been sending messages around,
Not quite ready now.

Appreciating the ordinary—the natural things—being open and present enough to enjoy them, deepens us and turns us toward reverence for the myriad aspects of this one experience. […]

    certainly nothing to be done for those who experience it. patience and persistence will be better
