There’s a quote about having to leave things behind in order to move forward that I quite like because it’s something I believe. Yet growing up and still sometimes now, I find myself caught between where I am and where I want to be.
I’ll blame that on the fact that I was born a dreamer
It’s easy to get caught up in routines, work, family, friends, romance and expectations even when we know that there is something different or something more that is available to us.
And sometimes it’s the newness of change that we fear because there’s comfort in familiarity that has nothing to do with how good or bad a situation is.
So we stay stagnant and stick with what we know. But that part of you that knows more is out there grows hungry and you end up feeling unfulfilled with your current life.
Sometimes despite getting to this point you still feel unable to move forward.
Something has to give.
Somehow you start to let go and slowly but surely you start to move into the life that you’ve always wanted to live.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
