My last child is finishing up high school next year so I plan on moving. I am so desperate to move to another city. I am frustrated with everything where I live now. What can I do meanwhile to make the time I have left more bearable? Desperate To Move, South Carolina
Dear Desperate To Move:
You need to slow down and just breathe. Things will be better for you when you move simply because you plan on making it better. Your life is strictly up to you and it’s important for you to keep taking action in order to create the life that you can truly love.
You feel the same way that most people feel, when they don’t like their jobs. When you don’t like your job, you need to seek out another job, even in another city; go back to school and reinvent yourself; or start your own business.
If you have funds coming in and a car, then you can essentially move anywhere. You don’t really need a car, but you certainly need funds to live off. Most people never leave their neighborhoods so for you to think about relocating, it will be a breath of fresh air as you create a new beginning and life for yourself and your family.
Meanwhile, seek out new adventures where you currently live that can help the time pass. Join some of the groups on meetup.com, even if you are leaving. Some of the friendships you make on these groups can be for a lifetime so check out www.meetup.com.
Also when you get to your new city, check out these groups or form your own group. Right now you need to be around like-minded people, with similar interests as yours and sometimes you can find these people online so check out some of the groups on social media.
Now is the time also to be kind to your brain. When your brain works right, you work right so eat good brain foods such as green foods that releases serotonin; exercise regularly, which releases 'feel-good' endorphins, and get enough rest. Put yourself first as you prepare for your new life. Good luck!
