Packing up and moving to a whole new life. Tempting, huh? Mobility glimmers on the horizon and everything you know — home, friendships, work — await reinvention. But what realities play out when embracing relocation?
In our third episode exploring New Beginnings, Julia Bainbridge shares what happened when she moved from New York to Atlanta. What rituals did she invoke to help find closure, what did she enthusiastically leave behind, and how has she explored her new home? Is being a single thirty-something woman all that different now? How has her New Beginning affected her feeling lonely — the subject she tackles in her Lonely Hour podcast?
We collectively discuss how to say goodbye to home, and then dig in.
