If You Don’t Like Where You Are, Move

If you’re thinking about moving, I hope my post will give you the inspiration you need to do just that. The only person who can decide if it’s a change you need is you. I would hate to see anyone get stuck in the same rut I was in until I decided I needed a change of scenery. I’m here to save you from my mistake and as a heads up, note that when you relocate to Ohio, HER Realtors takes the hassle out your hands by finding your dream home.

If You Don't Like Where You Are, Move, You Are Not a Tree

Moving is not a walk in the park. It’s hard to make the right choice even when you know it’s the right choice. Some people decide to move because they’re outgrowing their home. Others move due to their neighbors. There’s no right or wrong reason to move. Whatever your reason for wanting to move, go with your gut feeling and just do it. I’ve never regretted leaving my home of 26 years even when I had a bad experience at my last home of 3 years.

I feel like a comfy old shoe in my new home. It wasn’t easy to find the perfect place to spread my roots and if you’ve ever gone through the moving process without a realtor then you already know the headache of doing everything yourself. I found my last home by myself and that turned out to be a disaster almost from the beginning. This time, I turned to the experts. New home, new adventures, new memories.

If You Don't Like Where You Are, Move, You Are Not a Tree

Now that I’m settled in (5 months now, geez time flies), I’ve started working on some spring/summer DIY projects because there’s nothing quite like putting my own little personal touches on the place. I’ve also been organizing like I never have before. Living in the right place in the right location has given me a happier outlook on life and when you achieve that happy place, everything else just seems to be smooth sailing. Trust me on that. As I mentioned, I lived in my home for 26 years before I threw in the towel. I was resigned to live unhappily until someone gave me the best advice I’d ever been given, “If you don’t like where you are, move, you are not a tree.” Just hearing that from someone older and wiser was the push I needed to move.

What made you move to your home? Was it a need to relocate for work? Were you outgrowing it? I’d love to hear what inspired your move in a comment below.

    We are in the process of selling and buying houses – I agree – if you aren’t happy – MOVE! Which is why I’m out of there ;)

    We have not considered moving because we are pretty much set in this area where we live. However, if the need arises, we will definitely hire a realtor. Why sweat it and you can seek help.

    Moving is a pain in the butt for sure. However, you’re right, you have to move on when you know it’s time.

    I cannot agree more with you on this. If you’re not happy with where you live, you better look for a place that will make you happy. It’s going to make you feel like you’re stuck and trapped every single day if you don’t move.

    We’re actually in the process of closing on a home. We didn’t want to continue to live in this area, so we’re moving 20 minutes West. The schools are better and so is the environment for the kids.

    We just moved about three hours north last year. It was hard juggling the selling of our old house and the buying of our new house, but we managed. We had to move for my husband’s job, and I would definitely recommend using professionals. We could have never done it without our realtor.

    We were like that…. just a few years ago. We did that, for darn sure- MOVED! And we absolutely made the right decision!

    It is such a hassle to move, but I would agree with you that if you are not happy where you are, then you should definitely move. Using a realtor makes the process much easier and I would do so if I were to move again.

    It’s so important to have the right space around you! Once you do, it almost doesn’t matter if you have annoying neighbours! We moved recently because we outgrew our flat, had neighbours who were more than a pian and were fed up with the area… the weight that lifted once we moved to a nice quiet rural area was amazing! It’s definitely worth taking the leap into the unknown when you feel fed up <3
