Good Things Go For Better Things To Come

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” — C.S. Lewis

As long as the future is unpredictable, imagine it bright, glorious and much better than the past. We’re wired to believe that the best days are gone, that the past is better than the future and that holding on to certain things is better than letting them go because subconsciously we think ‘what if I’ll never be this happy again?’ I know I’ve had a lot of these thoughts myself in the past and life surprised me by bringing happier moments into my life.

We lose good people but we meet greater people, we think we’ll never find a love like the one we lost but we find the love that we deserve, we think we’ll never find our calling but then one day it knocks on our door and we think that the future can be cruel but it’s always kinder than our past.

Life is constantly changing and the things we got used to, the things that make us comfortable and the people we love can change too, and we find it extremely difficult to adjust to a new life that doesn’t include the ‘pillars’ that made it meaningful at one point, but this is when life teaches you the most valuable lesson; you must have faith in the future and the better things it holds for you.

It’s up to you to think of your future as a blessing or a curse. Because as long as you’re alive and breathing, the world needs you for something and it’s better to get excited about it and think it needs you for something great instead of thinking that the good days have come to an end.

I’ve been actively training my mind to look at endings as beginnings to better things, to look at goodbyes as hellos to new opportunities and to let good things go to make room for the better things that are coming my way.

That doesn’t mean that the future doesn’t hold bad days too, but I believe that it will also bring more blessings, more love, more success and more unforgettable moments. Instead of thinking ‘it couldn’t get any better than this,’ I think ‘I can’t wait to see how much better it gets from here.’ TC mark

Writing makes me feel alive. Words heal me.

Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again

Nothing scares me more than someone loving me one day and deciding they don’t want me the next. Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.
