INTRODUCING 'TAKING A LEAP' BLOG

Updated: Mar 25





I am dedicating this blog to inspiring and helping working-class adults (like myself) who want to leap ahead in their lives by making a physical move*; literally moving your household elsewhere. To another city, or state, or even across town. IT BECOMES A LEAP when your dream living location is currently only a series of ‘no’ after ‘no’ for you:

- You know NO one there

- You have NO job there

- NO affordable housing already awaits for you

- NO million $ in your account (not even much savings)

- Maybe you’ve never even been to your dream location

(which was my case when I decided I was moving to Asheville, North Carolina)


* This blog also can help if it's an emotional leap you want to do !'

 

THE HEADLINES SAY MILLIONS OF US ARE LEAVING JOBS

WE DON'T LIKE OR AREN'T TREATED WELL IN



BUT WHAT ABOUT OUR EVERYDAY EXISTENCE ? How do we feel about the neighborhood / city that surrounds us ? Are we cozy at home and still exploring beyond ? Or does stepping out the door even if everything around us looks OK and not threatening -- suck our energy* !


* What we as individuals need to thrive and be at peace in our own skin.

 

DO YOU BELIEVE


The dream place you want to live has elements currently missing now from your everyday life ?

(i.e. a type of physical environment; a faster or slower pace; the quality and diversity of human interactions; cultural and employment opportunities......)



YOU FILL IN THE __________



WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR ? What do you intuit* you need to become the best, most accomplished, and happy you ?


(i.e. practical resources, support, environment..)



* Feel-In-One-S-Bones !
This is me to you; a private conversation, not a polling of everyone around you.

 

DO YOU ALSO BELIEVE

It is utterly impossible to make your dream move – to leap ?!

(and not break every bone, but actually make it on two feet and tall to the other side)





CAN YOU EVEN ENTERTAIN THIS THOUGHT :

"I want to be happier in my everyday life !"




WITHOUT BECOMING QUEASY ! Because you feel totally inadequate ! Because you see no path leading there. Because you’re loaded down by everyday existence (even the good elements) . Because there's no one for you to ask for help (and maybe you do a lot of helping).


 


CAN I ENTERTAIN YOU WITH THIS THOUGHT :



WHAT IF YOUR 1ST STUMBLING BLOCK

TO CHANGE / TAKING THAT LEAP

IS THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ENOUGH

ABOUT THE STARTING POINT

FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO:

YOU !!!!



Do you have the courage (and curiosity is essential to courage) to embark upon a journey towards yourself, as I do the same ? When you start the journey you won't need $; only a few moments of time. (On the toilet or waiting in line are great times to think ! )



 


I will monthly post a short 'Taking A Leap' essay, such as this one, which also ask you questions or give you simple exercises to do. Answer the ?s. Do the exercises.



WALLAAAAAAH !!!

Just by doing this you take a (tiny) leap !







Each month I will also record an Episode for my 'EXPLAINING THE GAME' Podcast that gives you another way to think about what I cover in the 'Taking A Leap' essay (plus you get me directly talking with you).


In between monthly essay posts I'll do a series of short blog posts where I further explain tricky particulars; add hilarious and mind-bending personal stories (both mine and other people's) ; divulge links to resources that can take you further than I can; and celebrate what inspires me !
