10 inspirational quotes about moving on

Quotes-About-Moving-OnToday let’s explore some quotes about moving on.

How often do we form an emotional attachment to the bad things that happen to us when what we should be doing is drawing a line under them and moving on?

Bad things happen to us all and of course, they can be a bitter pill to swallow.

However, you can’t change what’s happened; only how you choose to look at what’s happened.

You can allow these things to define you; to constrain you, and to prevent you from enjoying the happiness you deserve.

Alternatively, you can say, “Pity me not. Stuff may happen but I’m a tough nut to crack. I will not let anything prevent me from enjoying my life as best I can. I value my self-esteem and my personal happiness more than I will allow unfortunate circumstances to throw me off course.”

The past serves only for the lessons it teaches us; it has no other bearing on the future. However bad the past may have been, that doesn’t mean the future can’t be better. You can’t change the past but you can shape the future.

So never be constrained by anything that has happened to you. Just take it on the chin and move on.

Learn the lessons of course, as they will make you wiser and stronger. Otherwise, focus on the future, don’t worry and above all be happy.

Nothing matters much and few things really matter at all.

Here are 10 inspirational quotes about moving on to reinforce today’s underlying message.
