2bnaked saidAh forget about it, cant afford to move!
2bnaked saidAnother perfect day!! Come visit. Pay my round trip airfare and put me up for a few days than I will be more than willing to join you in Arizona. I am so over cold snowy cloudy weather.
Get out of your #shitole and Move! There're so many great employment opportunities out here. Get your resume updated, sell your stuff and get out! I like it here, but I am currently doing a move myself. I have been here in Az & So Cal for awhile now and my final destination is Hawaii.
I would not let a defeatist attitude call the shots.
I get into that defeatist attitude too, and especially when it involves a big decision.....so if that applies, then here is my advice.
When I ask myself why I doubt I can do something...the answer is always FEAR. Fear is a terrible emotion....it sits in the body, and paralyzes me from taking action. Then I find reasons to justify my lack of action. So how do I get out of this? I write down a daily step-by-step of EVERYTHING I need to do to accomplish the big thing. I fight the fear by making a conscious decision....and acting on it (most important!).
Since spring is 5 weeks away, why not start planning now to escape by next fall? Make this a detailed step-by-step plan of everything you will do. Set a date, and a location you will move to. Plan how you'll get there, where you'll stay, what employers you will approach, etc. Even the clothes you will need. Tell people your plans. Tell yourself that you are done with NY winters. This action plan shows your body that it can be done, and fear and doubt just start to loosen their grip. And definitely get creative with it, like you can remain a resident of NY, but find a way to spend 3-4 months in Florida. It's like that old question, "How do you eat an elephant?" One bite at a time.
