Life is never more stressful than when you are planning to move. It seems like no matter how much we try to plan and organize, something always goes wrong. When the inevitable does finally happen we are left with 2 choices; forget the plan and stay where you are, or charge forward and take risks.
Pedro and I have decided to take the risk.
Pedro is always saying, "there is no growth in comfort." I completely agree with him, which is why our family is moving from Puerto Rico...
to Raleigh, North Carolina.
We want to embrace the challenge and find new opportunities to grow as a family, as well as individuals.
Honestly, moving is exciting, but not all that fun. When the stress seems too overwhelming, it can help to remember the 2 major benefits of moving.
1. A chance to start over - there are very few times we are allowed to restart in life. If you are blessed enough to have such a chance take full advantage of it. Create fresh beautiful memories and allow yourself to be the person you've always wanted to be.
2. Problem Solving skills - This one was meant to be a little bit of a joke. If you have ever moved, you get it. There is no better example for Murphy's law than moving. You think you have it all figured out, but sooner or later you'll find yourself blindsided by something you didn't expect. Thankfully, you learn how to think on your feet!
Good luck to every brave soul who is also making an important life transition this year. Focus on the outcome of the journey and the process becomes much easier!
