O - Onward

Image courtesy: Google


I was absolutely clueless as to what my O should be for. And that's when I thought of Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat Pray Love) and how she signs off on all her posts with onward. Yeah, not goodbye, not cheers, but onward. Life is a journey and it means that we have to keep moving forward, no matter what. 

Onward. Isn't it such a beautiful word? It holds so much of promise and excitement for the future, all contained within our self. It reminds us of the things that we are capable of. Whenever you get stuck in a situation that compromises your happiness, remind yourself that this too shall pass. The trick is to go forward. Without stumbling. 

The bad times in your life is not going to last forever. Tomorrow is a brand new day. So, onward, dear friends :) Make all those dreams yours.

  5. I guess I like the concept of 'onward' as a closing, though I cannot stand Elizabeth Gilbert. It's a good sentiment.

  11. Onward is what I told myself when I had to leave home after too short a break, reach Bangalore at 4 in the morning and get myself to work on a Monday. Onward is what kept me going :)
