I'm no stranger to moving to different cities, particularly as an adult. I lived in Tampa, Florida my entire childhood, went to college in Boston, lived in New York City for two years after I graduated, and then moved to Los Angeles, where I've lived for the past six months. Even though I've moved so frequently — especially over the past three years — I'm super grateful for the experience. When you move around a lot, you learn so much about what kind of environments you thrive in, and what isn't really your cup of tea.
I love that moving around has given me a well-rounded view of what cities I'm most productive in, and it's helped me set the groundwork for where I want to live when I decide to settle down and have a family one day. Moving around has gifted me with friends from all over the country, and I have a really good idea of what surroundings I work best in. I appreciate being able to call four different cities "home," because they all served as my home base at a certain point in my life.
Though moving — and change in general — can seem super intimidating, I enjoyed the fresh starts I've had in each place I've lived, and I know that I wouldn't have it any other way.
