Somewhere, deep down, you know it’s time to make a change. Whether it’s your personal life, career or something else, if something is constantly eating away at you, it might be time to make a change.
Taking a big leap in life can be scary. For me, it was a move across the country. I lived in Europe before, but only for six months while I was studying abroad and then traveling through western Europe.
Then two years ago quarter life crisis kicked in and a flip switched in my life. I was suddenly ready for a new adventure and knew I had to make a move. I was often anxious and my mind was always wandering to the “what if … ” I knew if I didn’t do something then and there I would regret it later in life.
Moving across the country from the small college town of Madison, Wisconsin to sunny San Diego, California was a huge, life-changing move. It was the best decision of my life.
That doesn’t mean it wasn’t scary. It was. But family and friends supported the move, knowing it would bring me the most happiness.
Keep in mind, this decision is the best decision for you, not everyone else. If you’re happy and your best self, it’s only going to add more value to the lives around you.
