Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. (Mary Manin Morrissey, motivational speaker and author)

Whatever the cause for not moving forward, Morrissey advises, “Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain.” She asks, “What is it you [should] let go of?” It’s clear that lack of forward progress is often simply the result of personal reluctance. Let go of what’s holding you back, and move on courageously.

Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us (Hebrews 12:1).
