One reason that many of us don’t take chances and do exactly what we want be is that we’re afraid of getting judged. Luckily, you can use your move to become the person that you’ve always dreamed of being. Read on to find out how…
Start With The Move Itself
If you’re the sort of person who takes everything on yourself, now is the time to stop. Remember that you don’t have to do everything to be considered successful and to do well in life. It’s a good idea to hire professional removalists – check out local movers for ideas – to do the actual move for you. They’ll make sure that none of your precious possessions get lost and broken, and it’ll give you spare time and energy to focus on yourself, on trying to relax, and focusing on the bigger picture instead of how to stop your plates getting smashed.
Overhaul Your Appearance
Naturally the time just after your move is likely to be some of the busiest few days and weeks of your life, so you might not have all that much time (or spare money!) to go shopping for new clothes. Instead, make it a more gradual thing – buy new makeup products here and there, and try them out in your day to day life, and look online for reviews so you can try out a brand new hairdresser and hairstyle. In your new neighbourhood you won’t get any embarrassing questions about your new look, so you’ll be free to enjoy the new you without having to justify yourself to anyone.
Join New Activities
One of the joys of living in a brand new area is that there’ll be brand new things to try out all the time. Get talking to your neighbours, look online, and check out all the local noticeboards in coffee shops, and find activities that you want to do. Maybe you’ve always been interested in art but you’ve been too afraid to take a painting class, or you’d like to learn how to use your digital camera properly, or you want to learn to code so you can start a whole new career. No matter what exactly you’d like to do, use your move to make this change in your life. If you’ve moved to a rural location, then maybe you won’t be able to go to classes – instead look online for yoga YouTube channels, for online coding classes, for creative writing forums. Indulge your interests.
Say Yes To Opportunities
One of the most important things to do in life is to take as many opportunities as you can. Even if you’re used to making excuses and saying no, it’s time to reinvent yourself and to start saying yes to things. The idea of getting coffee with a fellow school gate mom that you’ve never met before might be a little intimidating, but who knows? They could be a potential best friend, but you’ll never know until you push yourself to be brave.
