Come to Terms With the Past
The first step you’ll need to take is remembering the things that happened in the past that have made you want to start fresh. Was there one specific event that pushed you to this point?
Were there a few small events that have led you down the path you’re now on? Whatever happened in your past, it’s time to come to terms with it. Starting fresh is not the same as running away.
When you acknowledge your past mistakes, failures, or bad memories and make amends with them, you can then move forward.
Write Out Your Failures
What are all the failures that have led you to where you are today? Take out a sheet of paper and write out all of your failures. Did you lose a job?
Was it a relationship you lost? Write them down. Then, write out the changes you’ve made to prevent these failures from happening again.
What will you do differently in the future? If you don’t learn from your mistakes, you’ll make them again, and it’ll feel as though your past is haunting you.
Set Goals For Yourself
It’s a great idea to set goals for yourself. You’re packing up and leaving your old life behind you. What are your goals for when you arrive at your new location?
Create a list of all your goals and the steps you’re going to take to achieve them.
What do you plan to focus on in your new life? Do you have a support system by your side, even if it’s via phone?
When things start to feel chaotic, take out your goal list, and remember what your new purpose is.
Have a Plan Laid Out
Having a plan to follow will make the process much easier for you. You should have a plan for the entire moving process. Do you have a moving and storage company hired to move your items?
Do you have a new home ready for you? Are your utilities transferred over?
Will you have a job in this new town?
Have an actual plan to follow, and then be sure to see it through.
