EXCITED FOR NEW CHANGES AND EXPERIENCES!
I find that I have to focus on moving forward and not concentrate on what I left behind.* And not say things like, "well, when we were at home [meaning, in Oregon]..." Because I'm out of my element, it also means I'm out of my rut. I'm exploring new things: face-to-face activities with grandkids; new business opportunities; new places to "tour" (we like to play tourists when we move); meeting people.
I'm also starting to get back into a few routines including writing and small art. After putting it off for one or more months because of moving, I've started my next 100-Day Goal, and it happens to be about moving forward with art (including turning some e-books into physical books).
I will not lie--it's still hard! Exploring opportunities and possibilities keeps me steady on my feet and moving forward. Oh, and within the first week of arrival, we volunteered to do three things. Great way to meet people.
*Friends are the exception. I'm not going to stop thinking about them, and luckily I can converse with them via vid chat and email and messenger. I love meeting new people but I love my friends in Oregon. What's that girl scout song: "Make new friends but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold." (Did you just hear the music in your head :) )
