Moving Up, Moving Out, Moving On

This school year, my son is moving up to college. This week, my neighbors moved out of their apartment. Last week, a co-worker confided to me that she finally had a closure with her ex and now she's moving on. 

Moving gives us mixed feelings, but in the end we realize that that there are also blessings. Though a college education is more expensive, it also means that in a few years, my son will be qualified to work. It's sad to part ways with a kind neighbor, but then again now we both have a chance to meet new friends. (Besides, she left to us her manual Nautilus treadmill!) It was painful to let a person go and realize that the relationship is finally over, but this paves the way for a fresh start.

Moving up, moving out, moving on--they're parts of life. Are you moving?

Does moving mountains count tita? hehe... Each one of us does that in prayer! Like this post a lot. :)

It's good to keep on moving, otherwise we become sluggish and slow and un-ready for quick fixes. Love your sites, Marlene!

Maganda 'yang movement. Napaka-boring naman ng buhay kung static. Life is dynamic.

Tama kayo, Ate Yay and Ned. Life is a movement, and sometimes, surprises come when we move!
