Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

If so, you are worrying about tomorrow.

You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

today is the day to begin a long-term plan

perhaps in your interactions with customers and co-workers.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Working at a job you hate is unlikely
