There is no experience quite like packing up all of your belongings and moving to new place. I moved from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina this past Monday and making it all happen was not an easy task. It’s an exhausting experience to say the least.
Are you considering a move in the near or distant future?
I know first-hand how difficult that decision can be. I considered the pros and cons of relocating for months before I took any concrete steps. In a few short weeks, I’ll be moving to an apartment in Wilmington, North Carolina (pending on storm clean-up, of course) from NYC.
While there are certainly reasons to stay put, there are plenty of valid reasons to relocate. Of course moving is an expensive hassle, particularly if your new home will be in a new state or country, but the expense can be worth it if the change will benefit the wellbeing of you and your family.
I’m moving out of Manhattan at the end of September and heading down to Wilmington, North Carolina in mid-October! My heart flutters every time I talk about it. It’s really happening, folks.
Some of my friends were thoroughly shocked to hear of my choice. How could I leave a city that is the center of the universe? How could I live with constant FOMO? How could I abandon the bagels?
