keep moving forward

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths". This is a very simple and meaningful qoutation made from the greatest animator in the world, Mr. Walt Disney. I first came upon this phrase was while I am watching the film Meet the Robinsons.

One of the scene's dialogue got to me which stated "you just focused on the bad stuff, when all you need to do is let go of the past and keep moving forward...". This phrase hit me and made me think, maybe the reason why I am always having a hard time with my life is because I am constantly stuck in the past. I always beat myself up on the past failures that I have made. I never really have forgiven myself for those failures hence, I never really did move on...

I tend to dwell on the things that happened and tend to think about them over and over again. This could be the reason why I never got anywhere because I am always running around in circles, this could also be the reason why I never made something out of myself.

This story actually teaches us about pain, disappoinments and failures and how to deal with them. Though it's a cartoon, one can actually pick up a lot of lessons in it. I used to be so afraid of failing when all I needed to do was to learn from those failures and just keep moving forward.

So now this is exactly what I am learning to do, I'm learning to let go of the past, learn from the lessons of yesterday and just keep moving forward so that I can open new doors that may lead to new opportunities. And looking forward to where my life's journey would eventually take me.
