Move On, It Is Time To Let GO!


Forgiveness is always a hard issue on every individual. They always say it is easy for you to say but it is always hard to do. I have been through a lot of hurts in the past. Many have come to my life but few are those persons who can I call to be true. Many come but only few are chosen. Even how deep the hurt was I always learn to forgive. One of my principles in life is to forgive as a favor for myself and not those who have done me wrong. I always believe on a principle “Most mindsets say we become the victim if we forgive, and the offender becomes the victor.Actually, it works the other way around: When you choose to forgive, you become the victor.”-Chinkee Tan

Before I have been into sleepless nights. Always crying on the corner if someone has betrayed or cast lies and hurts on me. I have had inferiority complex and always looked down on myself. Deep emotional hurt and mental scars was there always waiting to choke me up. Later in life when I discovered that I had a heart ailment things began to change. I asked myself why I would let this anger and bitterness ruin my days here on earth. I decided not to let this past hurts affect my present and future life. I have made a choice to let go of my past hurts, forgive those persons who have hurt me and enjoy the life that God had given me.

I am reading a book and the author Chinkee Tan said, “Forgiveness starts with the word decision”. “The Decision must be based on a choice and a commitment. We should not depend on our feelings and emotions; if we will trust solely on our emotions it will just defeat us.”

Forgiveness is a decision we have to make. It is a process and it does not take overnight to undo everything. Decision to let go of the past is the first step. Accepting that it has already been done and finished is the second step. Let go of the past because you cannot change it anymore. It will remain as a memory that needs not to be affecting your future. Forget and leave the bad memories behind but treasure the good memories and keep it us a learning tool for your future. Do not let your past affect your future life for sure you will be the loser in the end!

Break your bondage from your past memories. Try focusing on your present life!Make yourself and your loved ones a priority rather than harboring your anger and having those people around you be affected and losing them in the end.Always asked for God’s guidance and emotional healing.

Past mistakes and hurts have been done. It is not an easy process but taking the first step can lead to a race to the finish line which is forgiveness and restoration. One saying goes “You cannot sail the ship when the rope is still tied to the dock.” It is time to let go and be free from your past hurts. Move on it is time to let go!

Shake it off and Step Up!



Experiencing failure in life will always be a part of our life’s journey. In our journey, we will go through different stages and obstacles. There will always be happy moments and challenges along the way. Sometimes we feel like we have fallen into a deep pit of which there seems to be no way out. No matter how hard we try and asked for help it seems we cannot get out. The more we try, the more we become tired and thwarted. We ask for help or rescue, but instead of someone helping us out, we heave rudeness instead.

Many times, we feel life is throwing burdens on us. We feel like the whole weight of the world is on us. Problems seem to come from all directions. Discouragements and rudeness are everywhere. Loved ones and friends whom you expected to be there for you are the first ones passing judgement, throwing insults and hurting our innermost self. Problems just pile up until this problems are bigger than we are.

Sometimes I would ask why but there has only been one answer. Every situation that comes in our lives has a purpose. Whether good or bad there will always be a reason in everything. Problems come in our lives to produce patience, strong will and perseverance. The insults that are being thrown to us will give us the strength to accept it as a challenge to mold us to be a better being.

When problems come, we must not only sit and look at it. Every situation in our life will always depend on how we respond to it. No matter how bad your situation is what matters most is on how you deal with it. Instead of giving up and letting ourselves be buried alive into our pit of problems, it is time to shake it off and step up! When we experience failure and other people insulting us shake it off and step up! Life will be forever condemning if we give into it. Life will always be downhill if we allow it. Life will be meaningful and happy if we do something to attain it! So when trouble comes no matter how big it is it is time to shake it off and step up!
