Do you have any hobbies? .
yes

Exactly! We think just alike!

Moving to a new place (sometimes) creates a new sense of zest. Even if it's just a new area of town...Doing the same mediocre routines can get pretty boring, pretty quickly.

Moving is good

Not really. If that were the case, then everyone would be miserable, or happy, in the same places and circumstances. It's how you REACT to the external circumstances that determines whether you're happy or unhappy. That's internal.

And now while Im here frustrated about this stupid move there's a party going on back home.

I just cant wait to get out of here...Sometimes we get complacent with the way things are going in one place; but then we get bored and go someplace completely different and resent it.

Ugh
Start your own party. Chances are the people back home haven't even noticed you aren't there. Life goes on. Once you make up your mind to LOVE where you are. As long as you are mired in the past, you will never be able to accept the present or look forward to the future.

There are great people in Texas too! Resolve yourself to turn your here and now into peace, love and happiness.

Give it at least a year before you leave. I left my hometown to move to Dallas. Then I got homesick and wondered why I was even there. I moved back home and I regretted it as soon as I pulled back into the city. I suggest at least giving it a year before you decide to leave. There was a reason you left Miami....

I have heard this many times too. I moved from MI to NV 4 wks ago. So different at first. Not sure I can handle the change, but I am slowly getting use to it. I love the heat, but I can see where people get bored of it, especially when you have had 4 seasons all your life.

I have already made my reservations to go back for Christmas for two weeks and after I did it I thought, "what the heck am I going to do for 2 weeks there?" I do have all my family, but sometimes one week can do justice there!!

Seriously, if I had all my kids here, the only thing I would miss is my extended family. Not MI, it is but a place. And I can visit.

I didn't state were we moved because just because I don't like it doesn't mean people from there would differ. I think it all depends on the kind of person you are. I love to get involved in things that I feel strongly about and you can do that anywhere. I don't really see myself as a adventure person. I'm a strong beliver in family and having the time together. Yes this move means a better job and with a family that is inportant. But when you leave all behind and everything is different it shakes the core from you. For some that isn't a big deal. I know that I have to make the best of it. But this isn't home .
