Making the Move

So, you finally bit the bullet and decided to make a move. Now you’re you freaking out? Rest assured, you’re not alone. It’s a natural response to a move of this magnitude. As the move approaches, anxiety levels seem to rise. The following are some concerns seniors have before they make the move:

Will I ever be able to adjust to living in a smaller space?
Remember when you were young? Most of us lived in a small space and didn’t have much. Most of us were happy. If we could do it then, we can do it again.

Will I be accepted?
Being accepted is important, so treat people the way you want to be treated. Put a smile on your face. You’ll be surprised at the response. Don’t talk about your problems. Ask people about themselves.

Have I made a mistake?
If you have been considering a move for some time, then you must know that this is the right thing to do. Don’t second guess yourself.

How will I get through this move?

You will get through the move by being prepared, having a plan and trying to keep a sense of humor. Don’t worry about every little thing. Things have a way of working out.

Will I ever be able to accept this change and be happy?
Change is the only constant in our lives and you can be happy if you can let go of the past and look to the future. As we change, we need to accept change in our
lives.

Will I make new friends?
If you have been able to make friends in the past, you will be able to do the same when you move. Trust in yourself!

As my Mom used to say “You are the boss of yourself”. If so, then you control the success or failure of your move. Look at this time as a new chapter in your life, an adventure and LET yourself be happy. You deserve it!
