Finding the Courage to Move

A friend of mine tossed me through an E-mail the other day in part of his continued effort to convince me to move to Texas which has admittedly been a huge part of the reason as to why I am beginning to think about it more seriously now. My budget has been extremely tight recently due to the lack of working coming my way. As a Freelancer, this is a part of life for me. You’re always going to be stressed; either from too much work or not enough work. Unfortunately I’d rather deal with the stress of having too much work.

Texas, however, is beginning to look more and more promising every day. With the rent being decidedly lower in the area where my friend lives, as well as the possibility of picking up a roommate which would only help me save money even further, the only thing that is stopping me right is the fact that I would have to pack up everything and actually move. There’s a lot to moving an entire life to a new spot. I’m sure that I won’t even be able to take everything with me when I do move which is also a part of my hesitancy.

I’m trying to look at the good things, though. It’s better for me financially if do make the move so I should be considering the long term implications of NOT moving which are, in two words, not good. Not good at all. I’m going to have to get over my dislike of packing as well as accept the fact that I am going to have to get rid of some things in order to move. Letting go of the things that I own definitely seem to be the most difficult part of this so maybe if I just get it over with first, the rest will be easy.
