Cliff’s “Big Move” Blog Post Series

Making changes, especially major ones, can be extremely difficult for highly sensitive people. It’s tempting to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar, even when we may not be completely satisfied. Change is hard, but with desire and determination, it can be done, and I will prove it!

Starting on Monday, November 19th, I’ll publish 23 posts on consecutive Mondays about all the changes I’ve made over the past four years. On Wednesdays and possibly Fridays, I’ll write blog posts on other subjects of interest to highly sensitive people.

In a series of blog posts,  I’ll chronicle a really “Big Move” that my wife and I made to move halfway across the country to be closer to our daughter. This was a HUGE change for us, as we had lived in our home in New Jersey for over 30 years! My mother had recently passed away, and our only daughter had moved to Missouri. Since neither my wife nor I were getting any younger, we knew that if we didn’t make the change now, it would never happen. (more…)

Was Julia Child A Highly Sensitive Person?

I recently watched the movie, Julie and Julia, a 2009 film that depicts events in the life of chef Julia Child. This movie inspired me to draw parallels between her life and my own. I’m not sure if Julia Child was highly sensitive or not, but she’s a great example for HSPs to emulate and admire.

Julia Child was a genuine person who had an exuberance for life. She was extremely confident and enjoyed wonderful, profound relationships with her husband and friends. She had a passion for food and was able to craft a successful career around her passion. (more…)

(12) Some Things Are Not Meant To Be!

When you make really big changes in your life, the journey can be both exhilarating and disappointing…sometimes both at once. After selling our house in record time, we couldn’t have been any more excited! This was a major step that brought us closer to our goal of leaving New Jersey and moving near our daughter. We would soon be living the life we had dreamed of for so long. While we still had a long way to go, we were ahead of schedule and feeling full of momentum! Little did we know, disappointment was lurking just around the corner. (more…)

Do you love your highly sensitive self?

Do you love your highly sensitive self?

As Valentine’s Day approaches, do you take the time to appreciate the good qualities that you have? I know that this is the time to spread the love to others, but where does love truly start?

Think about it. When do you feel the most loving towards others? It’s when you feel good about yourself. When you are happy, you are much more inclined (and able) to give more of yourself to the people who you love. Self-love gives you clarity, patience, and the desire to share your joy. You are also better able to leverage your HSP instincts to anticipate what others need. (more…)

(11) How I Used My Highly Sensitive Intuition To Sell My House

Had I not tapped into my HSP intuition and powers of observation, I honestly don’t think our house would have sold as quickly as it did! My ability to “read” people and to understand their motivations gave me the insight I needed to facilitate the sale.

Since we were selling our house on our own, realtors would call us directly to make appointments to bring clients to see the house. Upon arrival, I would greet them at the door and tell them briefly about the house. The agent would then take the prospective buyers on a private tour. (more…)
