What are you moving away from and what are you moving towards?
In a world of constant change, we’re always leaving some things behind and bringing in some new. Even a positive change can mean leaving something behind that you’ll miss, and a change you’re less happy to be making can have some benefits too.
You get to choose which to focus on. You can either dwell in the past and regret all those things you’ll miss, and only notice the downsides of the change.
Alternatively, you can embrace the change and notice its benefits. What are you glad to be leaving behind and what are you looking forward to?
It’s human to have regrets, but perhaps you can reframe them into gratitude that those things left behind have been part of your life.
Being open to what lies ahead creates greater optimism and positivity, so which will you choose?
