Surprise! It’s an obstacle!
You probably don’t want to hear this but it is extremely likely that just before you are set to leave there will be what will seem to be a MAJOR setback that might stop you from going. Here are several examples:
1. Your car breaks down.
2. Your girlfriend threatens to leave you.
3. A friend passes away.
4. Your housing situation falls through.
5. The moving truck cancels or is overbooked.
6. You lose your wallet.
7. Someone has a crisis and needs your support.
All of these situations would cause any person to feel stressed and re think whether they should continue with their plans. MOVE FORWARD anyway. You have your own life to live and you can’t allow other people’s situations to make you pause yours.
You are responsible for YOU.
You have to remember that this last minute chaos is normal. It shouldn’t stop you from moving forward. When the dust settles you will be in your new environment and that in itself is enough to have to handle on its own.
You need to remain calm, look around you and recognize that this is just the wheels of your life beginning to turn. This isn’t a sign that you shouldn’t go, it’s a sign that you have set things in motion and nothing you can do will stop it.
Even if you decide that right now is not the time to move forward because of the last minute chaos, trust me, you WILL regret it in the future.
Take your chance. Move now. This is not the end of your story. You can handle this.
