From Fear To Adventure - Carlisle, PA.

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

I read this quote this morning and although Dr. Cloud may not be specifically be referring to a 'move' in geographic terms, nonetheless, the quote is applicable to every aspect of a 'move.' 

Moving is a reality of life. Whether it be moving to:
A new job
A new hobby
New eating habits
A new exercise regiment
A new community
Or a new home
The common denominator is the aspect of 'new' - and the stepping stone from the familiar to the unknown. Moving requires new patterns of thinking.  Being able to adapt to a move and transition through it with a healthy perspective helps the mind shift from 'fear' to 'adventure.'  

Life is on the move.  
Be ready to shift gears and re-adjust.  
Look up and keep focused on the ultimate desire. 
And never forget to appreciate the view along the way...

Great post, Maria.  Sadly, many people are more controlled by fear rather than possibility.   If they could look a change as possibility and challenges as opportunity... oh how fun could that be?  Thanks for the quote by Dr. Cloud.  I've never seen that one before.

Sometimes we miss the good that's staring right in front us because of the resistance to change.

Thank you for sharing

Dr. Cloud seems to know what he is talking about.  I must admit, it seems as though some people are pre-wired to look forward to change and others avoid until forced.
