When moving, there is often a bitter sweetness in the air. New beginnings are great, however; it is tough to let go of what is familiar and comfortable, to what is “home”. Especially for those moving in Salt Lake City who have children, it is important to have a positive attitude toward new beginnings. Here are some tips for coping with saying goodbye to your old home.
- Gather up the family and drive around the town. Visit old places that hold dear memories. Take photo’s and do something fun that will really help you remember the place and smile.
- Host a going away party. Invite all of your friends, and children’s friends. This will be a fun way to say goodbye, invite as many important people as you can!
- Take a final walk through the old home and appreciate spots and moments you’ll never want to forget. Take a picture of the family in front of the old house, for an instant good memory you can frame.
Make plans to visit your old town within the first year or so after the move. It will be a fun day filled with old friends and good memories, then you can start making the memories that will make your new home just as special to you as the last.
