Time to move out and move on.

My dear readers, let’s do something today. Help me to pack up. It’s time to shift old memories and compact it into a box. Seal it with tapes, make it airtight. They shouldn’t be let out nor should anything else be let it. Grab the photo frames on the dressing table. It’s been haunting me for days. Bring it on all the letters and cards under the bed. They don’t have a place there anymore. Clear all the clothes in the wardrobe, each of them telling me stories about yesterdays. I’m all over it and after all they don’t fit me anymore.

Shut the windows and draw the blinds. Pull over the luggage and clear the pile of dusts on top. I need the luggage to pack up some lovely memories. This house had seen many good things too, can’t bear to leave them behind in a place with no occupants. Lovely memories need me as much as I need them. It’s not fair to push away our good fellows to the back line especially when all the punishment belongs to the wrong guy.

Don’t forget the china set which given by a lovely friend. Reminds me of that special birthday that I had years ago. That old bed sheet smells of something sad. Leave it at the same place, they shouldn’t been drag along to the new bed. Oh my! I really need to be careful when moving out those fragile stuff, they should be handled with care. As for now, I only have them with me.

The contract had been drafted. Lawyers had been hired. All I need is to pen down a signature and the house doesn’t belong to me anymore. Now comes, the last ritual, the most awaited moment. I closed the door and lock it for the last time. With a luggage on my hands and boxes on the track, I bid the final adieu to my old life. Here I am now standing on my doorstep, blowing goodbye kisses to the old keys and threw it away behind those hills. Who needs the old key when the new home is waiting to embrace me with a hug?

Goodbye my old life, you’ll be forgotten but will never be missed. In either ways, you are at loss, not me. I have a new life peeking me from the other sides, convincing me to dream and begging me to move on. I felt wind brushing through my hair. It’s time to leave my past behind, it’s too burdensome to carry it on to the future. Isn’t it better to be safe than sorry?  The past had taught me that some mistakes are too costly to be repeated. Memories is what makes us who we are but when it starts to haunt you, then it is best to be forgotten.

After all, we have only one life, why not live it to the fullest?

  6. With Spring coming it's time to move on, to say goodbye to the old, to the things that don't serve us any more, to the memories that make us sad. You wrote if so beautifully. This goodbye carries peace and serenity. Goodbyes not always have to be sad.
    Much love sis.xx

  9. This post says so much. It's not only about moving on but about a whole life lived. Place, clothes, bed, sheets, photos, letters, card,....

    Time will help a little, but for now, watch the emotions.

    Always interesting and engaging.

    Thanks for sharing/writing.

  10. A very nice post that makes the reader feel the pain of leaving behind the past life and at the same time the happiness for a better tomorrow. It backs the idea of moving on though, but it's not only about that. A nice post.

  12. You inspire me. It takes a lot of substance in yourself to move on leaving the past behind and being confident for it to be forgotten and for it to be not missed.
    Yes, life is just once. And you're on the right path alright. All the good things came right in as soon as you let go off those old keys. Now good luck and shine, you! Beautiful and blessedness awaits you! <3

  13. Yuo're lucky to get the courage to move on, a lot of us ache to do it and never succeed. Sometimes we linger on to the past also, just because the present is not so attractive. Hmph.
    I wish you all the luck, I am sure a blessed year awaits you. xx
