We recently saw a news story about a lady who gave up her city life and moved to the beautiful area around John O Groats. Calling her little plot of land Puffin Farm, Cara, originally from London and a nanny previously, decided that she wanted to live off of the land after the death of her mother.
Calling the farm her home for around a year, Cara has a petting farm, a farm shop and a bakery and says that she has never been happier than she is living in the Highlands.
So, this got us thinking … how do you know when it is time to move on and try something else in your life? Are there some signs that moving, perhaps to somewhere entirely different such as the Highlands is a good idea for you?
We have put together some of the signs that it is time to start over and try something new.
You can’t achieve your dreams where you are
Live in the city and want something a little more rural? Crave the idea of setting up a little farm and living off the land? This is something that you can’t achieve in the city. Some may decide that they are going to brush the idea underneath the carpet, but if it keeps popping back up, then maybe it is time to bite the bullet and follow your dreams?
You haven’t ever lived anywhere else
Now, some people are more than happy to be born and grow up in their hometown, and there is nothing wrong with this. For some people, however, there is always an itch about the world around you. If you are the type of person who wants to try out a different area or explore the rest of the country, why not try out living in a new place, even if for a short period of time?
There is someone you care about there
One of the main reasons that someone chooses to relocate is because someone that they care about lives there. This is becoming more and more commonplace as people are meeting online or at university and then finding that they live quite far apart. This can be a scary idea, particularly if it is quite a distance, but just like many things, if you don’t try then you won’t ever know.
Think that you like the idea of moving to a new area and trying something new? If you do, then perhaps it is time to think about checking out the Highlands? Want to try before you buy? Why not book in with Mackays and get a flavour of the area? We are pretty sure that you will fall in love with the Highlands and be more than ready to pack up and make that exciting move.
