21 thought-provoking quotes about moving on


Every ending is a new beginning. When one chapter ends, we turn the page and there’s a whole new chapter to explore.

Life is just a series of chapters and not everyone or everything has a place in every chapter. Your story will have many twists and turns before it reaches its conclusion.

It’s easy to feel attached emotionally to the past but we can’t live life through the rear view mirror. We must be positive and embrace the future.

It may move us out of our comfort zone but it’s in that space we’ll grow.

A sentimental longing for people, places and things is quite natural. However life is for living. And if we’re to live life to the full we must look ahead and keep moving forward.

So here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about moving on to inspire you.

Having the courage to draw a line under an event or a relationship, or any other life-changing experiences, is essential if we are to become all we could be.

When things end, life doesn’t end. Life goes on and what’s gone is in the past. So leave it there and look forward to the future.

And you can always keep in mind some of these quotes about moving on.
