Moving ahead

You’ve been disappointed. That’s in the past. It’s time to move forward, so don’t dwell on your disappointment. Remember that not all disappointments are bad. In fact you may eventually realize that what you wanted is not really what you needed. You may discover you’re better off because things didn’t work out as you’d planned. There may be a silver lining in your disappointment. Use the disappointment to reexamine your priorities. Then you may want to make major or minor changes in your life and focus on new goals. That can help you work through your disappointment. Remember, the only true failure is to give up!
