Don't Look Back

If you guys ever want to get a lot of thinking done, just move away from all your family and friends to a new land. It's fun! My posts have been much, much deeper than in past months, as I'm sure you've noticed. I have really been finding myself and learning about myself from the core. 


My goal has been to purge all of my bad habits; all the things that have been holding me back in any of the above forms; and to grow. In order to do that, I have to start with the things from my past that I'm still holding onto that no longer serve a purpose in my life - at least, not a good one.

However, I recently started a 40-day journey toward creating miracles in my life, which I'd love to share more about later. In this journey, I'll be focusing on some major shifts toward a life of light and love. In order to do this; truly do this - I know I have to let go of what once was in order to focus on what is. That includes the pain and the unanswered-questions.

I know deep in my heart that everything happens for a reason. The time I otherwise wouldn't have had with my mom before she died is proof of that. God, the Universe, whatever you may refer to it as... has a plan.

Each step I take along this 40-day journey, the more I realize how a lot of the little things [in the grand scheme of things] we hold onto, keep us from reaching our truest potential. They keep our energy from focusing on the now. They keep us from reaching absolute happiness; bliss. 

I challenge you all today to think of those things you've been holding onto, that, when you look at the big picture, don't bring you anything positive. They don't help you grow. They don't lift you. Whether they're bad memories, what ifs, a toxic friendship, etc... join me in never looking back.

Everything I've been through was preparation for where I am right now.

What are you never looking back on?

What a wonderful journey to begin. And you are so right about moving away from everyone to get you into a growth spurt.

I like this post.. So what is your 40 day journey going to be based on?

I just called off my engagement and moved back home.. I'm in a place where I don't want to look back either. God has always had a purpose and I'm eager to find it all out.

I saw something on fb last night about not wasting your time on those that only love you when the condition is right for them. I'm really going to work on that!! It needs to happen.

You are an inspiration, my sweet friend! I just love you positive attitude! You are so right, the only thing holding you back is you. Good luck with your 40-day journey - email me about it!!! I will be cheering you on!

Hey! I started reading your blog about a year ago, but then fell off the bandwagon. I'm back and rediscovered your blog -- you've been through a ridiculous amount during that time and it's been inspiring to read. I'm from Southern Maryland, but just recently moved to Alexandria. What part of Fairfax are you from? It's so great when you "run into" people from where you call home! :)

beautiful! thank you for sharing. it's amazing how easy it is to get caught up in the superficial. I too am reassessing life, remembering to focus on what's really important.

What a wonderful place of self reflection to be in right now. I find that even if I can't see it at the moment everything does happen for a reason and things that you struggle through prepare you for what's to come in the future. I've been through a divorce as well and it was for the best. Had it not happened I wouldn't have the wonderful life I do now.
