Relocation Pains and Self Awareness

I’m lonely in this unfamiliar place. My life is in my car; I’m living out of a hotel; and the only thing I have is my job. Friends and family are scattered across the planet, and all positive growth momentum feels abandoned in Santa Barbara.

I can find good things in Los Angeles. Already: endless restaurants, venues and events in the city. Able friends are easing the transition with invitations and introductions.

For you:
Try applying this form to your challenges.  First, state the situation honestly and voice your concerns. Second, acknowledge the positive and potential. Forward, carry the latter; keep an open mind and receptive heart.
