Walk Away - A Classy Fashionista


Walk Away

Sometimes you've just got to walk away. From people. Old habits. Relationships. Your hometown. You find out you just don't belong there anymore. You find that people are just sucking the life out of you. Relationships are toxic and your hometown, sadly, isn't your home anymore. You're growing up. You're moving on. These things are good. They are emotional. It's scary. But you've done it. You've gone out into the world and you're going to conquer. Conquer the world darling. You are made to go out into the world and be who you are. Don't look back on what you have left behind, it will just drag you back with its face of desperation. You don't need those things anymore.

The future is scary, but you can't just run back to the past because it's familiar. Yes, it's tempting, but, it's a mistake. It is so easy to slip back into toxic relationships that you know you should not be in, but you do it anyway. It is so easy to go back home and live in the same routine as everyone else that graduated from your high school. It is so easy. But darling, you are called to so much more. Leave the past where it should be, behind you. Move forward and let it all go. Lay it all at the feet of Jesus, pick up your bags, and move on. Your future is bright (Proverbs 23:18).

It is easier said than done, trust me, but you must know that it is time to start something new. It is time to live for you and not for those you have been trying to please. The world is at your fingertips, darling. Don't just sit there. Go out in the world. Be you, forevermore. 

"The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday."--Steve Maraboli
