The bonus of being young and single is the freedom that we possess. We can go anywhere and do anything during this time and all we have to do is move. Even though we have this opportunity, why are we afraid after to go after it?
The other day I was talking to my friend about my upcoming move and how I’ve been looking at cities within my home state for jobs. While we were talking she asked me why am I not applying or looking outside of my state and I didn’t know how to answer. I’m always talking about traveling and seeing other places, so it’s interesting to me that I’ve never thought about living in another state.
Part of the reason is because I’m not familiar with many areas to consider moving, or because I haven’t lived anywhere else. Either way I shouldn’t let those things hold me back from at least applying for what’s out there. Maybe what I need is in another state, so if I don’t put myself out there I would be keeping myself from that.
While we’re young we have the freedom to move and do what we want to do before spouses and children come into the picture. As my friend said, in some cases we have to go where we should be and not where we want to be. While my home state is my comfort zone out there somewhere is my future and I have to grab it.
