It is time to begin moving on in life whenever you feel stuck in a job, relationship, or other situation. If you have had a relationship break up, or have been fired, find constructive ways to let go of the past, move on, and build a great new life.

Is it easy to move on? No, it is almost never easy to let go of the past. Often, gathering the courage to move on in your life can be one of the hardest challenges you have ever faced. It is completely natural and the essence of human nature, to want to cling to the familiar and to shy away from the new and the unfamiliar. We are creatures of habit. We want to believe that tomorrow will be just like yesterday - even if yesterday was unpleasant. It takes courage to make the difficult choice to change how one lives, where one calls home, what job or career one identifies with, and who one calls friend.

When making the difficult choice to let go of a painful situation and to create a new future, do make a special effort to find those elements of your past that are still valid, and to which you can still hold firm. Identify those friends and family members who will support you in your new location, your new career, or your new relationship. If your spiritual family is not what you are moving away from, renew your connection with it. If you are not changing careers, even if you are changing employers, renew your professional connections. In short, decisively break those ties that are limiting your future, but reaffirm those connections that support your true self.

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Moving on, is a simple thing, what it leaves behind is hard.

If you have been divorced, you know it hurts -
especially if your marriage had lasted many years.
Whatever the circumstances of your relationship,
and whatever the nature of its ending,
there is always grief and regret -
perhaps regret over the ending,
or perhaps regret over not ending the relationship sooner -
or perhaps both.
Nonetheless, move past the grief and regret.
No matter how painful, divorce, like all endings,
opens the door to new beginnings.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
- Victor Kiam

to learn something new,

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
