Stop worrying where you’re going – move on:

Stop worrying where you’re going – move on:
So my letter arrived today, offering me the new job. The role is one which has the potential to bring together my passion for education, the creative arts and equality advocacy, so I’m feeling energised and enthusiastic about this new chapter. 
When I feel that I’m valued and that my job is making a difference I have endless energy; I’m a bit like Tigger! 
At the moment I feel more like Eeyore and that’s a sure sign that moving on is the right thing to do. 

Move On

from the musical “Sunday in the Park With George”

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, comes to mind: 

Stop worrying where you’re going—move on

If you can know where you’re going, you’ve gone

Just keep moving on.
I chose, and my world was shaken—so what?

The choice may have been mistaken, the choosing was not.

You have to move on.
Look at what you want,

not at where you are,

not at what you’ll be.

Look at all the things you’ve done for me:

opened up my eyes,
 taught me how to see,

notice every tree,

understand the light,

concentrate on now.
I want to explore the light.

I want to find how to get through,

through to something new,

Something of my own—move on.

Move on.
Stop worrying if your vision is new.

Let others make that decision—they usually do.

You keep moving on.
Look at what you’ve done
, then at what you want,

not at where you are,
 what you’ll be.

Look at all the things you’ve done for me.

Let me give to you something in return.

See what’s in my eyes

And the color of my hair

And the way it catches light

And the care

And the feeling

And the life moving on!
We’ve always belonged together.

We will always belong together.

Just keep moving on.
Anything you do, let it come from you.

Then it will be new.

Give us more to see…
