A Bold Move

Recently I have been struggling with numerous aspects of my life, because the universe likes to dump you in the deep end every now and then.

Following a frank discussion with my partner regarding what we wanted in life and where we were, we have decided to make a bold move and so we are moving out of England and across to Ireland.

Now for those who have read this blog for a while, you may know I have extreme anxiety so the idea of moving well outside my comfort zone (I have never moved beyond my home town) is at the very least, overwhelming.

However, sometimes you need to make a bold move, you need to sacrifice something for the possibility of something better.

That is what we are doing.Β  We are choosing a new path and taking a risk.

So, since I will mostly be having mental meltdowns for the next two months due to all the overwhelm and the stress while we give away and sell like 80% of what we own and sort the logistics of this move in a very short time frame… I won’t be around on this blog.

However, I am still hoping to have my current guest posts popping up.

Otherwise, I will be back in August… maybe September depending on my state of mind.

As always thank you for your wonderful comments, your faves and your follows. I have enjoyed building this blog and hope to be back on top form later this year.

    1. Thank you Matthew, we are finally over in Northern Ireland now. Feels like it’s been a massive upheaval but definitely for the best. Will (hopefully) give me the time I need to focus on my novels.

    1. Thank you. We have now settled in Northern Ireland, really beautiful. With a view of the Mountains and 10mins from the beach. Mostly went well, though the cats didn’t appreciate the long drive or the ferry ride but we are all calm and settled. πŸ™‚

  4. I too suffer from mental health issues so I understand your trepidation. The best things in my life have all come from bold moves.
    My husband is always encouraging me to take risks. Enjoy this process, I know great things will follow.

    1. Thanks Lorraine. It is hard making changes when you have mental health issues. It’s good to know that you find bold moves have revealed the best. I definitely think this move will be good. We are settled and while there are lots of obstacles and changes to deal with, it will give me the time to finally focus on my writing and my business.

  5. Hugs and many prayers πŸ™ are coming your way, Ari!

    I hadn’t moved from my hometown until I was 21 and got married, then we moved about 750 to 800 miles away. I can so relate to what you’re facing. I can also say – embrace the adventure. We moved around quite a bit for the first 15 years of our marriage (all in the U.S.) and even though it is never easy, it was fun getting to experience life in different places. Look to the adventure.

    God bless you and I look forward to you coming back here to share your adventures with us.
    Hugs! 😊 ❀️

    1. *hugs* thank you Pearl for your kind words of support, they mean so much to me. It is definitely for the best, or at least I’m going to make it for the best! πŸ™‚
      I am seeing this as an adventure and will try and embrace it as such and not get bogged down with the stress of change.
