So the 3-day Quote Challenge was to be completed in 3 consecutive days, but then life happened, and as stated in the Day 1 Quote, it was not at all like what I had planned!
Oh alright then. I'll be honest. I can't really blame life this time. It was a miscalculation on my own part. I knew schools reopen in July, which means busy days at the store for me. Yet, I signed up for this challenge, over-estimating my own capabilities. Sighhhh! What can I say?
I guess I'll just plead guilty and get on with Day 2 of the Challenge! It's raining heavily here at the moment, so no customers until the downpour stops. Perfect time for me to update my blog... that is if the laptop battery doesn't die (In India, rains and power cuts are always part of a package deal.) and the internet keeps working ('coz 3G is dependent on weather conditions). Here's Day 2 then...

I've heard people say that "life is unidirectional". That is almost like saying that "You've entered a one-way lane, from where no left-turns or right-turns or U-turns lead out!" That sounds too bleak for my liking, so I don't completely agree with it.
Yes, life does move forward only, but, it never blocks those turns along your path. It never takes away your right of choice. You can choose to change the course of your life if you are not completely happy with the way it is at the moment. Or, you can choose to remain on the same course that leaves you feeling discontent or short-changed.
As Chico Xavier said... "Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning... anyone can start over and make a new ending."
It is not possible to undo your past (unless you have a car that travels through time), but you can always choose to create the future that you've dreamt about.
I think this is what "moving on" truly means... when you forgive yourself, for all your wrong choices in the past, so completely that you start believing you deserve a second chance in life... and then you stop living a compromise, a lie... and consciously start making choices that take you closer to your dream life.
That's when you start over... to make a new ending for your life. And I think it's only then that you truly really "move on".
