I think I might have already mentioned it in previous posts, but if you couldn’t already guess from the title of this blog post, I have moved back to London! Yes, after continually saying I would never move back after living in London for a couple of years while I was at University, I have found myself living back here again…
I always said I never wanted to move back to London as I hated how busy it was. When I was living here before, I felt quite lonely even though most of the time I was surrounded by lots of people. It’s a weird feeling to describe, but it made me slightly resent the fact that I was living in London and somehow not experiencing it how I should be. So moving back here might seem like an odd choice but it was most definitely the right decision, and one of the best things I have done for myself in a long time.
I’ve been wanting to move out of my parent’s house for so long now but I just couldn’t decide where I wanted to move to. I had a couple of options but every time I stopped to think about which place I would prefer living at, I felt really anxious. Then all of a sudden an opportunity presented itself where I could move to London, but live in a place where it still had the feeling of being in a nice town, away from all the hustle and bustle.
A lot of my friends have already moved to London, so I guess my decision to move here was a long time coming. I was previously living in a little town near to Cambridge and always felt like I was missing out on things – the FOMO was real! In terms of my job too, I was heading into London more and more so it kind of just made sense to move.
I knew I needed a change and to get out of my comfort zone. Moving into a house where I knew no one was scary but I had to push myself into this. Deep down I felt I was making the right decision because instead of feeling anxious about moving, I just felt excited! It is like I knew it my gut that this was going to be a great opportunity. And to be honest, I was just super happy at the prospect of finally
I honestly feel so lucky to have landed where I am. I live in a beautiful house with three great housemates, and I’m only a short tube ride away from central London. And since moving, my confidence has only grown. I’m saying yes to things I would have normally felt too anxious to do.
If you have made it through to the end of this extremely rambly post, thank you! I guess the main purpose of this post and thing I really wanted to get across was that you should always push yourself out of your comfort zone, and great things will happen!
