4) Move on, don’t worry about what you are leaving behind, but what is ahead of you
- This is also another tough one, as we sometimes feel comfortable in the here and now and afraid of the uncertainty about what is ahead. Life is about taking chances regardless of the unknown. If you are at the point where you are considering making your happiness a priority, all that matters is where you are now is not a place you want to stay. With that mindset, you should be motivated to take the risk of moving forward. For me, I left behind my ability to get angry quickly, some people who were not building me up, places that I no longer belong, music that depresses me instead of lifting me, and things that are simply not for me. It is not easy, I know that from experience. However, you have to do what needs to be done whether it is easy or as seemingly impossible as making fire with ice. Also, you have to trust that what is ahead is worth more than where you are now.
