“Sometimes the hardest part isn’t letting go but rather, learning to start over.” – Nicole Sobon
Since the beginning of the full moon last month, I have felt like a slow-moving turtle towards my goals and from receiving insight into my life, but on Monday last week, something shifted, and as we head into another full moon this Thursday November 6th, I believe it is a great time to move forward out of anything that is holding us back.
The full moon bears other meanings such as renewal of energy, freshness, reconstruction, development and the conception of hope. You are advised to advocate changes in this stage of your life, and should also consider putting an end to unsavory habits and stale relationships that are keeping you from forward thinking and moving.
Some ideas on how we can move forward:
1. Let go of the opinions of others and do what is right for you and your journey.
2. Letting go of past hurts and failures. Staying comfortable is not moving forward.
3. Decide what you need to do and make the first step towards it.
4. Step into the unknown and start opening doors to change your career or allowing a new thought pattern into your future.
5. Write down your dreams and goals and then break them down to an achievable list of how you can get started.
Each day is a new day to begin again and be grateful for the small steps that lead to the changes you want in your life.
“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” ~ Steve Jobs

Thanks Karen for this message. It comes at a good time for me.
I am so glad MK, I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
More than good ideas, five keys to enlarge our horizons… I like Steve Jobs’s quote! He’s right! Thank you Karen 🙂
Thankyou Frederic for always taking time to reflect and comment on different posts, your thoughts are appreciated.
5 good principles Karen. Full of wisdom. Thank you.
Thankyou Don, they have always helped me move forward after a pause along my journey.
Point 5, in particular, is something I’ve been doing the last few years and it really works Karen! The smallest movement toward one’s goals combined with other small movements gets you there. 🙂
It does Diana, well said. When we don’t break it down, it becomes overwhelming and that’s when we get stuck! Have you started your new job yet?
Yes I have and I’m loving it Karen!
That’s great to hear! X
Thanks for this gentle reminder of how to get unstuck!
Thankyou, I appreciate your comment.
I think this is a fantastic list and # 1 is probably the hardest of all.
Thankyou Elizabeth, No.1 is the one I have struggled with too! Once we let go of that, the rest takes care of itself! Good to have you back around the circuit.
At work we do a Career Board Development where we get asked what our strong areas are and what is our personal and professional goals. I think that we (I especially 😀 ) need to do sometimes. Taking a time to think and reasses in order to get a clear view where we are heading. Very nice share, HG.
Thanks Rommel, I agree with you. To monitor our progress, we need to reassess our goals and movement towards them. Have a great weekend.
