5 Quotes on letting go and moving on as we go into 2017

As this year ends and another begins, we reflect on everything we have done or didn’t do in the last 12 months. Either we gained some good memories or wished we could forget some bad ones. This article reflects quotes that will hopefully help you realise that it’s better to let go and move on and start anew next year. Here are some quotes that resonated with us and what each meant for us this year.

  1. “Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.”
    – Hermann Hesse

Sometimes we just have to let go of the regrets and worries that build up at the end of the year. Even though we think holding on to all this emotion and turmoil makes us stronger as a person and help us cope with whatever else is yet to come but in reality, it is bringing us down. It is hard to let go and release all of that negative energy but sometimes it makes us even stronger when we do, it gives us a boost of power when we finally release all that is weighing us down.

2.“There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind. But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a new life.”
– Unknown

This year I have had to say goodbye to a few people. And though that brings an empty spot in my life, it also opens up an empty spot in my life for someone else to come in. For them to bring in new life and a new meaning to that empty spot.

3.“It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.”
– Theodore Roosevelt

This year was a trial and error for us. We tried something and it didn’t work, it might have been a painful change or even one that took a lot of energy from us but everything is a trial and a result. With every trial that is completed, we are a step closer to better results. Everything has its ups and down, don’t give up even though it is painful right now or your energy is draining away, better things are coming down the road.

4.“Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.”
– Bob Newhart

Laughter is the medicine to all. It helps you smile, it boosts your mood and most of all it helps you move on from the negativity. When you laugh, you are seeing the best in the situation and that is the first step in letting go.

5.“You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.”
– Jan Glidewell

When we hold on to the past we let it cloud all our thoughts and feelings that we are blind to things in the present. We miss out on opportunities to be happy, to live in the moment. We can not change the past, but we still have the chance to shape the present.
