The Haunted Housewife - 12 Quotes About Moving On

It’s been a while since I’ve scoured the internet for inspiring quotes. Due to what I’m experiencing in my personal life, now is a good time to discuss moving on and letting go of things that no longer suit us. Growing up, we outgrow our shoes and favorite toys–as adults it gets a bit heavier as we outgrow places, faces, and situations.

This isn’t always a negative thing. While letting go is hard, it’s absolutely necessary in order to grow as a person. If what you’re trying to move forward from is a negative thing, take what you’ve learned from it. Instead of being bitter, be better. It’s just like playing Super Mario… you can’t go back. You must keep moving forward.
