“The Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step – Lao Tzu”
Whatever it is that is holding you from moving forward in life needs to be let go. No matter whether it is in life, health or your mental being. Yes unfortunate situations happen and most of us hold on to them dragging that baggage with us for much longer than we should. Depending on what you are holding on to it could also be affecting more than just one area of your life and being. The sooner you deal with whatever it is the sooner you will be free from it either.
Letting something go can be a long and painful process, but once you get there you will see that the process is invaluable. for example at least for me a big part of letting go of what happened and starting to get through the grief was getting memorial ink. As soon as the piece was done a weight was lifted off my shoulders and I started to see the light in each day again.
There are countless things that you could be holding onto that hold you back, it could be confidence or self-worth related. It could be something along the lines of being afraid to experience something else incase it does not work out. For me to let go of my baggage I had to implement a lot of mindful practice and meditation into my life, solely focusing on making each day better than the last. One day I woke up and knew it was time to just accept that what is done is done and sometimes we just have to learn to live life like each day is your last instead of dreading every minute. I promise that each step gets easier than the last when you’re headed in the right direction.
