Moving on when it’s time

November 28, 2014

move_on_logo_515pixI don’t know about you, but sometimes I hold on to concepts things (and people) too long. Way past their expiration date.

Loss of any kind? We’re not built to take it.  Moving on when it’s time? Not easy.

Who really likes to let go and move on?  Not when the old thing is so familiar that it’s comfortable.

Even if it’s not really comfortable. Just familiar.

Even when we know in our heart of hearts that something no longer serves us.  Because we usually do know, at some level.

And especially when the loss isn’t our choice.

Yes, moving on can be difficult.

Today, I’m over at Boomeon, talking about ways to move on when we have to. Or should.

I’m kind of expert at moving on….well, you’ll see.  HERE it is. But before you go….

Boomeon requires a sign-in to comment. I hope you’ll sign in because I love the content over there and commenting/discussion is always fun, but if you don’t want to, I appreciate any social shares you are inclined to make, instead.

Thank you!  Oh, and congratulations for reading this and not being part of Black Friday right now!

  1. Although I always find a way to move on, I often let go in pieces. I find the moving on helps the process. Heading over to check out your post.

  2. I’m not good with moving on or letting go. One look in my closet and you will see what I mean!

  3. Carol, your five “Past & Future Signposts” questions to ask oneself are really good. My question that I’m always asking myself is “Am I over analyzing this thing?” Creating drama where there really isn’t any? That’s a tough one…

    Heading over to check out your post but commenting here before I “move on” – you never know what will happen with a comment on Boomeon! Letting go and moving on are parts of being here and being present so it is a wrapped up in one bundle, isn’t it?

    I hate Black Friday! I had lunch with a friend, instead. It was wonderful. Now, I’m home snug as a bug in a rug, reading posts, which is also wonderful!

  6. I have a hard time letting go of people…sometimes to a fault. And I save things, from books to kids drawings, you name it. I have gotten better over the past few years. After my mother died, cleaning out her condo reminded me that I would never want my kids to have to go through our stuff the way my siblings and I went though hers.
