How Do You Know It’s Time to Move to a New City?

Change can be difficult, but it’s also a lot of fun! There often comes a time in your life when you know it’s time to move on, to make new friends or strike out on a new career path—to move to a new city. If you’re trying to decide whether a move to a new city is right for you, read on.

When Your Pockets Are Empty

People often make the decision to move to a new city because of money. Some cities are very expensive to live in and your resources just won’t let you live a comfortable life. Some places don’t have enough high-paying jobs, so you’re always counting pennies. If your pockets are empty soon after payday, you may decide it’s time to move to a new city.

When You Need to Follow Your Passion

You only live once, so make sure it’s the life you want! Many people move to New York or L.A. to exercise their acting chops. You might follow your musical heart to Austin or your surfer’s heart to the beach. When you can’t do without your passion anymore, it’s time to move.

When a New Home Beckons

Sometimes a certain place calls to you and you must go. Prague, San Francisco, or Key West, the allure of certain places speaks to some of us. Maybe that move is only a dream, but how will you know unless you try? If you don’t feel at home where you are and another city is calling you, it may be time to move.

To Leave Behind the Memories (especially the bad ones)

Sometimes a trauma or a difficult situation leaves memories that haunt you. A new city can leave those constant reminders behind. Good memories can have the same effect! If you’re filled with nostalgia in your current city and stuck in a time warp, it can be refreshing to move on and make new memories in a new place.

To Leave Behind the Weather

If you’ve had enough snow, heat, hurricanes, tornadoes, 6-month winters, or 105-degree summers, you can move to a new city with a more temperate climate. Some people just hate the heat while others can’t tolerate cold. If you move to a new city, you can put yourself where the weather fits you.
