Imagining A Future When Letting Go And Moving On

This is one of the hardest parts of letting go and moving on because it seems like everything you love will cease to be once you truly let go and move on. I promise you this is not the case. You can still honor your memories and let go of the pain associated with them. Try this exercise to begin imagining a meaningful future, one that is filled with happiness and fulfillment.


Step One


Ask yourself what the person (or thing you are trying to let go of – insert as necessary) offered you that was so special.


For example, in my case it was romantic love.


Step Two


Brainstorm who or what could offer you something comparatively special – this is difficult but really try your best to come up with three things that you could seek out and nurture.


In my case this was the unconditional love of my parents, the companionship of my friends and a possible boyfriend.


Step Three


Make a plan to introduce things or foster deeper connections with those that can offer you something comparatively special.


My plan was to spend more quality time with family and friends. Once I went through the other steps I’ll mention in Monday’s posts, having successfully let go and moved on, I also joined eHarmony where I met the love of my life!


Did today’s exercise help you feel empowered to create a meaningful future? How do you think channeling your efforts into other more nurturing things and relationships will help?
