Life Is About Moving On, And So Should We!

Life is a series of experiences waiting to happen. Unless you step out of your comfort zone, take a chance, and chase your dreams, you will never experience life as you’re meant to. We don’t know what life has in store for us in the next hour, day, month, or year. This is why it is so important to live it to the fullest! Therefore, life is about moving on. It never waits, and so neither should we!

Why is life about moving on and never waiting?

Holding back is inherent to human nature. Our minds are often influenced by a series of (unnecessary) what ifs, buts, maybes, and troubling doubts while making a decision, even as small as whether to buy the Vogue magazine at the checkout counter or not. Leave aside making bigger decisions about whether to take that long-awaited trip with your friends!

Next, life happens. After a long wait and several permutations-combinations, when you finally convince yourself to go for it, something catastrophic happens – someone close to you falls sick, or you lose a loved one, or a relationship ends. You find yourself searching for answers once more, but this time for bigger questions like “Why me?” Do I deserve this? What did I do wrong?

As the title of this blog suggests, life is about moving on. It waits for no one. On the other hand, we certainly wait for life to shake us abruptly before we can make any recognition of that situation. It teaches us in the most unexpected forms and at the most unexpected times.

Speaking of which, time and life are almost synonymous—both never wait. Both move on, with or without, and stay happy. Moreover, we know our time is limited in this one life we’ve got, and to top it off, none of us knows when our time on earth ends. So why all this waiting?

Time waits for no one, nor does life. 

The truth is plain and simple – we don’t notice until it’s too late, and we’ve lost (or almost) the chance to go for it – because time waits for nobody. Ask yourself how many times you have taken “time” for granted and lost the opportunities you could have grabbed. If you had only realized how important it is to move with time to live your dreams and live life to the fullest. 

Everyone has different dreams, and they do not always have to be earth-shatteringly big. It could be as simple as trying out a new fashion look, as fascinating as acting upon your first crush, or as glorious as becoming a pop star! It’s different things for different people. But the same is that life can’t wait and won’t.

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” 

~Mark Twain 

Life never waits for you to take action on your dreams. It’ll move on, and if you sit back, you’ll keep losing your opportunities. Don’t let that happen because life is about moving on. Life goes on, and so should we!
