Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful, happy, and safe holiday season filled with loved ones, laughs, good food, and some relaxation. I’ve been thinking a lot lately, as I’m sure many of you have been as well, about New Year’s Resolutions. What promises do I want to make myself for 2015 and what can I do to make sure I keep them? Most people go the fitness and healthy eating route, which is great! But I think it’s important to think of the other areas of our lives too. Are you saving up to buy a house? How much do you want to save by the end of the year? Are you moving for your or a spouse’s career? What can you do to stay happy in your career if you are moving for a loved one? Are you moving into a smaller home? How will you de-clutter and downsize without hurting anybody’s feelings? Whatever your situation may be, make yourself this moving resolution: “I will prepare.”

Know what questions to ask and don’t be afraid to ask them. Make sure that the move is the right thing for you and your family. So this year, make the moving resolution, “I will prepare.”
