Knowing When to Move On

How many times have you stuck with something even though you knew it wasn’t good for you either physically or spiritually?  Most of us do this quite often.  It is a matter of fear.  We’re afraid to give up something we have–even if it’s not right for us–out of fear of ending up with nothing.  We fail to realize that by holding on to things that do not serve us, we are limiting our potential for growth. 

It’s true what they say.  When your hands are full, you can’t reach out and take hold of anything else.  You have to let go of what you are holding on to.  To allow more abundance in, you have to give up that which no longer serves you. 

We are truly unlimited beings.  Why hide ourselves away in places where we don’t belong?  By not listening to the promptings of our spirits, we become victims of our own fears.  Release yourself from the ties that are holding you bound to the past.  Forgive those you feel have wronged you.  They haven’t wronged you at all.  Whatever happened, happened for a reason.  That reason is your spiritual growth. 

I have a magnet on my refrigerator that reads: “It’s never to late to be what you might have been.”  I have never read a truer statement.  Our potential is limitless.  I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Engineering degree at the age of 34.  If you had asked me 10 years ago if I was even capable of doing calculus, I would not have considered it.  This only shows that we can go beyond our perceived limitations to become successful in life.  I’m now working on integrating all my talents together.  I guess you could say I’m a work in progress. 

When integrating the different aspects of yourself, you have to realize that some of those aspects no longer represent you.  You have grown.  It’s time to move on.  If you don’t release those aspects, they may hinder your growth.  Eventually, you will realize what is happening.  But why wait for eventually?  Be true to yourself.  The best gift you can give to yourself is knowing when to move on.
