Redefining Yourself Is Stressful

"The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your

personality into the person you want to be...Be gentle with yourself,

learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right

attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others."


     One of the things I find my clients don't seem to realize is that the act of moving is also an act of redefining oneself. There is so much about our home that goes into our self-definition. Our home determines where we shop, what activities we take part in, how much time we get to spend with our family and children (depending on our commute time), who our neighbors are and therefore who we tend to associate with.

     If we live in a tumbledown house in a bad section of town, then we see ourselves as the type of people who would live there. If we live in a mansion in a fabulous neighborhood, then we see ourselves as people who have that type of lifestyle.

     Our home directly affects the way in which we think of ourselves.


     When we move, we are changing that self-definition. And anytime we change something about ourselves on this level, we encounter a lot of stress. If the thought of moving is stressing you out-you have good cause! Don't give yourself a hard time about it - it's the nature of the process.


     My job is to help you through this process. Now obviously I can't help you with your self-definition, but I can help you find just the right house for you-one that reflects who you are. I can also help to reduce the other stressors associated with the move so that you can relax a little along the way


Give me a call today if I can help you make your next move.

Stress?  There's no stress in buying a house!
