Oh where, oh where is Elizabeth?

As many of you may know I have a hard staying in one place for very long.  That’s become especially true the last few years living in New York city.  Last spring I realized that I needed to make a big decision about where I truly wanted to live and it began quite a journey for me.  Read on to find out how my decision points came about to see if it in some way it might resonate with you and any life decisions you may be facing (or maybe not facing!).


Oh where, oh where is Elizabeth?

Last spring I came back from a fun week in Los Angeles and realized that I just didn’t want to continue living full time in NYC.  Yes, it is an amazing city, and yet, I wanted a different type of life.  It was a question of, if not here, then where?  I realized it was going to take some time to make this transition.  In the past, I’ve often fearlessly picked up and moved cities for work, school, new opportunities, but this time felt really different.  I wanted to slow it down and feel that I was actually taking a grounded leap of faith (if there could be one!).

That said, this move was going to require research . . . a lot of research.  Little did I know a year ago quite how much research it might take.

Last year at this time I knew I was experiencing PAIN.  And it was enough pain to motivate me to do something new.  Reaching a certain threshold of pain, discomfort, frustration or whatever you may call it is a strong motivator for making change even if you don’t know what the end result might be.  I had reached that level of pain one year ago to risk going for something much bigger in order to feel happier.

Have you felt that threshold of pain in your own life? I believe this threshold is different for different people but regardless, when you hit this point, its imperative that you make a change of some kind.  The underbelly of ignoring your own threshold for pain can multiply into aches and pains, illness, depression, and it gets worse from there.  Your whole system will do everything it can to wake you up and get to make new decisions and do new things.

Have you noticed an area of your life where the pain threshold may be cracking and its time to speak up, re-negotiate, re-prioritize, make a move, or just do it?  I encourage you to do so before it becomes a full out crisis of the soul. (As it turns out I am really good at helping you navigate this kind of big shifting.)

I admit that for this move I needed more than one wake-up call.  Again, I found myself really feeling at the bottom of this whole relocation plan around the first of December.  I was reading a great book on change that I highly recommend titled, Manifesting Change, It Couldn’t Be Easier.  And there was literally one paragraph that spoke directly to me.  It said:

“When Completely Stuck, Chance the Unknown . . .

. . . By this I mean, consider making a major life changemoving to a new city, state or country; going back to school; or changing your career.  Assuming you’ve got that inner green light and you’re not going to burn any bridges in your immediate circle, take that big leap.  By making such a huge life change, you exponentially increase the opportunity the Universe will have to reach into your life make adjustments, and show you new possibilities.” – Mike Dooley

Reading these words made a difference and kept me going through all the baby steps to get myself moved to a new city and state – Boulder, Colorado.  I said yes!  I want to exponentially increase the opportunity for the Universe to reach into my life.

What’s the impetus you need to take action or move forward into new territory?

Ask the Universe to give you a sign, a signal, a push.  You don’t have to do it alone.

Here’s another reminder from one of my favorite quotes, attributed to Goethe:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Begin it now.”

Sooooo. . . . keep this stuff in mind, just commit and then allow Providence, the Universe, and more to reveal all sorts of things before your very eyes.
