Your ex may have been funnier or taller or smarter. But it didn't work with him for a reason!
Your coworkers might have been the best part of your old job, but you did not quit without cause.
That city you're dreaming of? I'll bet it was something special. But not so special to keep you from moving.
If we stop comparing the present moments to the past, perhaps we'll be able to see that we needed something different all along. If we stop looking for what once was and, instead, make room for what is now, maybe we'll be able to grow and move forward more easily.
A trip to Greece would be different now, that's for sure. We have just one income, a baby and are homeowners. But I'd imagine the trip could still be pretty incredible as a family of three.
This is, of course, all fictitious for now; we aren't going back to Greece anytime soon. But, today, as life begins to change in a whole new way, I'm remembering to hold on to the past with a grateful heart, while looking forward to the future with joy and open hands.
Here's to you, tomorrow, in all of your newness, unfamiliarity and adventure.
