when it's time to move on

If there's one thing that I've always struggled with, it would have to be letting go of the past. This was most difficult when I graduated from college, and later, grad school. It also didn't help that I got a job at my college, and have not moved away since I came here as a freshman. I can't believe it will be ten years come August since I first came to this campus. And that's part of the problem. Everywhere I go here there is a memory. Memories of friends, parties, outings, tough assignments. There is always something to remind me of the past here.

I can get so lost in it sometimes that I don't move forward. I don't look ahead as much as I should. We know when it's time to move on, because it just feels right. You just know. That time is coming, if it isn't already here staring me in the face. I suppose recognizing that you need to let go is half the battle. Time really does fly after all.
