You know when you make that choice, that decision, and it came so easy to you? Do you know why? Because that is WHO you are, that is what your make up is. It could be considered a personality trait, but whatever “that” is, it’s in the core of your being and it makes you, YOU. When you feel that passion deep in your soul, that longing to do something for the greater good of your life, you need to stop second guessing yourself.
Relocation is scary, it just is. And anyone who tells you otherwise is simply full of it. There is so much of the unknown you have to tackle that it can be trying at times to not just throw in the towel, walk away and go back to whatever you were doing before that spark was ignited. But what people forget is WHY was that spark ignited in the first place? Something inside of you is telling you that you want this, you need this, and that it’s time to go for it.
We are all human and we are bound to make mistakes, but that’s what is SO AWESOME because we are made up TOO make those mistakes. If we didn’t try, if we just continued to wonder instead of acting, where would any of us be now? Making that choice, that commitment, that dream to come true is one of the coolest, most wonderful moments you will EVER experience because you are taking a leap of not only faith, but of hope. Hope that whether you are looking to move to Florida, or wherever your destination may be, that it will take your life to new levels you never dreamed of.
I am an example, my family is an example. If you would have told us three years ago we would be living near our friends, hanging out at the “Food and Wine Festival” like it was the local pub, and getting to enjoy a piece of the magic any time we wanted, we probably would have laughed and said “Yeah, right” and went back to shoveling the driveway. (We have yet to miss the snow).
Do you realize how many times Craig and I looked at each other and thought “Are we doing the right thing?” It’s human nature to do so because we WANT things to be ok and all right, we don’t want or need chaos brought into our lives that didn’t exist before. But I can tell you that every time we thought about it, or the words came out, we would pray, smile, and know that if it was in God’s plan to get us here, we would get here. All of us have a story that has already been written, we are all just lucky enough to read a page of it each day as our lives move forward.
Don’t second guess yourself not only on relocation, but anything on life. Yes, give things thought, but most of us know deep in our soul what we want it, how we want it, and when we want. Don’t let others dictate your story, live it how YOU want to live it. Be strong in your choices, keep your head held high, and stay true to what you believe in. No one has the right to tell you that you can’t go for your dreams, so go for them. I guarantee you it will be the most exhilarating adventure you will ever go on, the greatest chapter you will ever write, because you took that leap and didn’t let anyone stop you. Keep moving forward my friends!
