The Upside to Changing Locations
November 10, 2015
Our expectations very rarely ever turn into reality, but we should be pleased to know that it goes both ways. The power of positive thinking is great, but sometimes it can set you up for disappointment. Moving is tough (no matter how perfectly everything goes), but that’s nothing compared to how you’ll react once you get settled into your new home. Routine can be more powerful than we imagine, and you may not even realize it at first. Plus it’s hard to tell people that you’re irritable because your coffee machine can’t be set up on the counter anymore because of the layout of your kitchen. So if you’re starting to feel a little down, then remember the upsides to changing locations.
Whether you’re moving across the street or across the country, you will have opportunities to make powerful changes in your life. Maybe your new place will have more space, which means you can finally have a complete room devoted to your favorite hobby. Or maybe a smaller place will help you de-clutter your life and help you focus on what you have in front of you. A coffee shop near you can provide an excellent reason to get some exercise in the morning with a delicious treat waiting for you at the end. If you’re moving from a warm climate to a colder climate, you can start ice skating, sledding or skiing. If you move to a mountainous area, then you could start a wildlife scrapbook or take up nature photography. There are plenty of opportunities that surround you, so you should at least try a few of them out. Some of them may not stick, but your efforts will lead you to something that does.
If you’ve never gotten stuck in a rut in your whole life, then you must be a robot. We all do it from time, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We need to have certain areas of our life stay stagnant so we can focus on other parts. But moving can help shake that up, and you might find yourself taking steps to a whole new way of looking at life. A new place can provide a new outlook that lets you put daily worries and stresses into the Unimportant Category where they belong. Again, this isn’t about being relentlessly positive, it’s about seeing the big picture. Your move, like your life, is what you make of it. And you can make it something amazing.
Making It Easier
It’s much harder to let the little things go if you have more stress on your hands then you know what to do with. Letting the experienced Chicago movers at Beltmann unburden you can really help you get started on the right foot in your new place.
