Phaytea’s Pulse is participating in the #AtoZChallenge for 2017. The Theme is ‘Awakening of Self’ and ‘Moving On’ is our entry for letter M. The theme focuses on character traits that will gear us towards Meaningful Living and will run for 26 days in April except sundays. Please stop by the blog everyday for subsequent posts as we read the 26 letters of the alphabet together. Enjoy!!☺☺
So i was going to reblog a previous post I had written about Mindfulness as my entry for letter M in the #AtoZChallenge.
The truth is, I was just being lazy but it is good that I have finally decided to write about ‘Moving on’ instead.
I’ll love you to read about Mindfulness: 7 things you do without knowing it leaves a bad impression as well. Generous much??
We are people of habit. When we like something or someone, we tend to build our emotions around it.
We like to remain comfortable. We get attached to people or situations that do not pose as a threat or give us stress.
In the same way, we detest situations that counter our expectations or basically anything that causes us to get disappointed or shift away from what we are used to.
What usually happens
In a bid to reach our goal, we will have to fail a few times, get disappointed, get hurt, endure pain or start over.
Unfortunately, starting over is a process that a lot of us do not handle very well.
If a business idea fails, what do you do?
If a relationship cannot be salvaged, what do you do?
The norm in these kind of situations will be to cry and sulk or stay away from anything exciting.
But this is not right.
What we should do
It is okay to cry or feel sad.
However, to give meaning to our life it is necessary that we move on.
Moving on can be very difficult and challenging especially if we have put in a lot of resources in a business idea or too much emotion in a relationship.
It will help if we realize that we can work towards getting a second chance.
We can work towards better ideas, we can start new friendships, we can own our happiness.
From the posts on my blog, I always advocate for positive thinking and meaningful living. When you channel your thoughts towards achieving the best for yourself, you will try to bounce back after a fall.
You should learn lessons from every fall and not wallow in sorrow or disappointment. Here are five things we can do to move on from disappointment.
- Find closure
Cry all you want, do not hold back on tears. Forgive if you have to. Be open to the transition process and finally move into a new space.
- Own your happiness
Engage in activities that make you happy. Be accountable for your happiness. Find out more in Keeping up with yourself.
- Change your mindset
Your subconscious will try to make you remember the low moment and get discouraged. Try to control your thought process. This post about managing your expectations can help.
- Learn from every fall
Every mistake made is an opportunity to learn. Read lessons from falling.
- Give yourself a second chance
Take a shot at new opportunities. Try new ideas. Start new friendships.
Nobody deserves to wallow in self pity so cry if you fall but get back up with the lessons you have learnt.
If you enjoyed reading this post, please share your thoughts.

I’ll love to read from you.
