4 Ways to Start a New Life After a Move


By Mikkie Mills

If you are embarking on a new adventure, think about how you could start a new life after you move. What do you want your new life to look like after those helpful Dallas movers pull away with moving truck and you're staring at your new home? Here are some tips for starting a new life that you love after a move to a new place.

  1. Say yes.
    When you're new co-worker invites you to happy hour -- say yes. A cute new stranger catches your eye on the train and asks you to dinner. Say yes. When you say yes to social invitations, you'll meet new people. Those new people can introduce you to a new life in a new city after a big move. It's the best way to make friends -- and maybe even a romantic connection if you're looking for one.
  2. Don't be afraid to fail.
    You are going to fail. It is part of life -- and it's definitely part of starting a new life after a move. Transitioning into the unknown means you will have to navigate new people, new streets, new common norms, and new situations. Don't expect yourself to be perfect in every new situation. It's ok to fail because it will be a learning experience. Be kind to yourself through the process and be brave enough to fail.
  3. Create a personal mission statement.
    One of the most amazing things about moving to a new place, is the opportunity to evolve into the person you have always wanted to become. You are free from the perceptions and your past that plagued you in your former home. Use this to your advantage to become whomever you want to be. But you can't get somewhere if you don't know where you are going, so take a note from businesses and write a personal mission statement. Looking for some inspiration, here are five personal mission statements from successful CEOs. Leverage their knowledge to help you write your own. It's also ok to pull a mantra or quote from somewhere else and use it as your own -- as long as it fits your personal needs. Whatever resonates with you will work for you!
  4. Celebrate every milestone.
    After moving out of your comfort zone, there will be times it feels overwhelming. You will worry about making new friends, find a new job, being lonely, but that's ok. To help keep your spirits high, celebrate every milestone -- no matter how small. You accepted a happy hour invitation? Celebrate that human connection! Found the perfect throw pillows for your new apartment. Pop open the champagne, you're making your new place a home! Joined a social group where you knew no one? That's a huge reason for celebration. By keeping this positive mindset, you'll better be able to handle the times that are harder.

Are you just in the stages of contemplating a move? Daydreaming about buying a one-way ticket to a new place and starting completely fresh? If you are willing to make the jump, you can start a new life. For inspiration, here are some people who took the plunge and their stories.

If you have already made the move to a new place, be proud of your bravery. It is a tough thing to start your life over, but if you face your fears it will all be worth it in the end.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
