So Move Out, Move On And Close The Door

So Move Out, Move On, And Close The Door

Sometimes it just has to be done.


Sometimes in order to move on and to move forward, you have to close a door. Sometimes that door can be a feeling, an emotion, a friend and or a family member. But what I want to let you know is that the door that is being closed does not mean you have to forget. You just have to learn to hold on to the lesson you learned from whatever is standing behind that door. That lesson no matter how painful it was to endure, that lesson has or will provide you with the ability to grow and become a stronger version of yourself. Sometimes life has a funny way of kicking us in the face.

But those kicks don't just come for fun they come with a purpose. I understand that we do not know exactly what that purpose is but I do know that no matter how hard it may seem it will get better. You just need to build your life on a firm foundation. My advice to whoever needs it at this moment is to learn how to love yourself fearlessly and find surround yourself with beautiful people who help lift you when you need it most. Create that foundation and start building the life you were meant to live. Find yourself a Hannah, a friend who will hold you when you need it the most and will always be there for you. You will also need a Nina, someone who is fearless and slaps you back into reality.

She will always be the voice of reason and will always be there to pick you up when you have fallen. Ingrid will be up for an adventure and will create a spark in your heart to explore more. Mikaela will encourage you to try something new and remind you of home. Isabelle will hype you up and make you laugh uncontrollably until you need to take a quick break to wipe the tears. Miah will take a week of work just to help you settle into your new environment and push you to be better. Sasha, she will always be a phone call away to remind you to breathe and to slow down.

Mary will give you hope for the future and will remind you to be selfless. Aaliyah will encourage you to be brave and to jump. But most importantly you need to find yourself. Give yourself some time to understand and truly know who you are. Spend time alone with your thoughts and your questions. You'd be surprised at what you will find out about yourself.

Treat yourself to new possibilities and learn to be who you are. Do not be afraid of change, it is supposed to happen in order to send in the direction you are meant to be in. Enjoy the bumps along the road, learn to laugh at life's craziness and enjoy the ride. Learn the difference between a situation you can handle and one you cannot handle. Most importantly learn to walk away from the door you have closed.

To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time
