how to move on in your life

Moving on with things is easier said than done. I think moving on in life comes in stages and over time gets easier, but you do have to make those positive steps towards moving forward. You can’t stay sad about that guy anymore, you can't stay knocked back from not getting your dream job and you can’t keep stressing out over a toxic friendship forever can you?

Step back & Breathe
Breathe. Take a big deep breath and relax. It’s one of the simplest ways to move on. Take a step back and just relax your mind. Taking some time to clear your head is the most important things to help you This could take a few minutes or a few hours to a few days - whatever it takes. Take as long as you need. There's no rush is there?

Let it Go
Delete all those messages, emails and photos that are holding your back. Let go of all the memories that are making you dwell on your negative past. Don’t hold on to things that could potentially make you sad because it can trigger old feelings you want to move away from. The main thing is you need to keep going and stop looking back at the past. You are the most important thing in your life and you have the ability to remove anything that’s unwanted from your mind.

Accept your past. Accept your mistakes. Accept the pain. Remind yourself things are going to be okay and you are strong enough to get through this. Realising that everything happens for a reason and you can't change the past is a really strong war to help you move on. Life isn’t always under our control, just acknowledge it happened and there is nothing you can do about it.

Try Something new
Break out of your day to day routine and find something new to enjoy. Find something new that inspires you or makes you feel like you. Pursue something you’ve never done before and explore places you’ve never been. I promise you the best way to move on is to distract yourself and put yourself in new situations. You might shock yourself how well you adapt to new situations.

Live your life
Life is way too short to dwell on the negatives. Live every moment like it’s your last and do whatever makes YOU happy. You don’t have to go crazy and go off the rails just do the little things that make you feel better. Enjoy time with people you love rather than thinking about what happened before.

It’s taken me over a year to get over an upsetting situation and I did have those helpless moments where I was telling myself I’d never meet someone new and I’d never be happy. But now I’ve moved on and I’ve never been happier. The key to moving on is letting it take time. You aren’t going to wake up tomorrow and your whole attitude on life is going to change. You just have to commit to actually letting yourself move forward. Take those steps forward and begin the journey to improving your own life. I hope this has helped you consider a few things and make you think “yeah, this makes sense" How will you move forward today?
