Whether you're starting over in your love life, in your career or the country you live in, this takes a whole lot of courage to do. We love to plan out our lives and I'm very guilty of that. But even though I agree planning is good to have some sort of direction, we need to understand that life can be full of surprises too. As my professor @tomguarriello once told me, stability is fake, people like the concept of it so they hold on to jobs they don't like, partners that don't make them happy and lives that seem OK, just to feel they are stable. There is one thing that is real and that is TIME. So stop underestimating time and overestimating stability. Stop saying: in 5 years when I get X I'll do Y, and do the things you really want to do, now. Even if that means having to start over.
