When it comes to opening a successful business, we’ve all heard the saying that most important is “location, location, location!” And that is so true! Many a business has failed simply due to a poor location. Well guess what? The same saying holds true for our happiness! People who feel satisfied with their community are physically healthier than those who are dissatisfied or feel their city is becoming a worse place to live. Location can determine opportunities for exercise, for example, as well as what foods we eat. Are you happy in your current location?
I lived in Westland my whole entire life, and loved it there! I grew up there, went to school there and all my friends and family are there too. While I always dreamed about living on a lake, the thought of moving out of Westland was pretty scary.
I was content and happy in Westland….I had the best neighbors, I loved ‘my Kroger,’ and ‘my party store’ right on the corner! And the thought of moving somewhere else, even on the lake where I always wanted to live one day seemed intimidating. But once I moved to my new home on the lake, met my new neighbors and went to my ‘new Kroger’ and my ‘new party store’ I realized that I was just as happy, actually even more happy in my new location!
I guess what I am trying to say, is if you are not happy where you are now…maybe it’s time that you changed your location! Change can be scary, but it can work out much better than you think and you won’t know for sure until you try!
What do you love best about your ‘location?”
