Just keep walking

Today’s inspiration comes from the daily “Notes from the Universe” emails

When you finally get that call, meet that person, walk that walk, and live that dream, Elna, do you think you’ll even care that there were a few dark and scary moments in a journey that made them all possible?
Trust me, you won’t even remember. 
Keep walking,  The Universe

The Universe – Mike Dooley

So very true!

Forgive, forget, move on. Don’t lose the lesson, but cling to the triumph.

I suppose there are 2 types of people in the world where this topic is concerned:
Those who enjoy the victory and build on it; or
Those who wallow in regret and “why me” and cling to everything that went wrong.

I am the first to admit that sometimes I lose the plot and things go seriously haywire, but generally, when things go wrong, there are two quotes which help me stay on track:

The first one is from The Bible and I believe in this so much, I actually had a tattoo of it done on the back of my neck:

The second is by John Lennon:

Getting back to the Note from the Universe, think back to a time when you were looking for work, or fighting for a promotion, or your car broke down and you had to walk, or you were cheated on and lied to….

As humans, we always remember the things that went wrong and I think that it is important to do that. By accepting the pain and grieving the loss, we heal. By remembering the pain, we remember the lesson and from there we grow – if we choose to do so!

But, bigger than the pain and stronger than the disappointment, there always is hope and the knowing that a victory is around the corner.

Cling to that! Hold vast to unwavering hope, knowing that this too shall pass and the victory will be yours in the end.

If it’s not yours yet, it’s simply not the end, my friend

Just keep walking!
