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!
In this series of blog posts, I 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.
However, there was so much in front of us, from managing my mother’s estate to preparing our house for sale to selling our house to packing up our stuff to retiring from my business to finding a new house. My head would spin just thinking about all that was ahead of reaching our final goal!
In the end, we successfully made the “Big Move” and accomplished something that we didn’t think was possible! We faced challenge after challenge, so much so that I was tempted to call this series “The Miracle of Doing the Impossible!” As long and difficult as this journey was, it was more rewarding than we could have ever imagined!
It is my hope that this series of blog posts will motivate you, as a highly sensitive person, to take on something that’s truly important to you. Being highly sensitive is NEVER a good excuse for not going after what you want! What “Big Moves” would you like to make?
In my first post in the Cliff’s Big Move series, I Didn’t Die (1), I summarize all of the changes I made in my life, starting from July 2014 through 2018. You can access all the posts in this series by clicking on the Cliff’s Big Move category in the sidebar.
