Ask Jay #8 – When is The Right Time?


Hello I was wondering if you could help me lately I’ve been thinking of moving to a new city to continue pursuing my dreams. Where I currently live has limited opportunities also I would like a fresh start. I’ve have been pursuing my passion for about three years now and feel like it time for a change. There’s only two problems one is the city is about 400 miles away from my hometown. Second if I move I would leave behind my boyfriend who I care deeply about, but I have only been dating him for about six months. My question is when is the right time to take that leap of faith and move?

This was one of the most interesting questions I’ve gotten so far. Many of us have or will face tough decisions in our lives. Whether it’s to move to a new city for our career or to make life altering changes to our life. Therefore to answer your question I would say go for it if its truly what you want to do.  I could tell you to make a pro’s and con’s list, save up enough money so you can be more secure when you move or don’t listen to the naysayers (and there will be naysayers). Even if you do all the following the decision is truly up to you. Now about your relationship I would suggest having a conversation with him about the situation if you do intend to move. Also take sometime to evaluate your relationship and determine if it is something you could see being long-term. If so, maybe you can workout a long distance relationship until one you decide to move.

What are your thoughts have you ever had a tough decision how did you decide what to do?

Some would categorize me as an entrepreneur, life coach, son, friend and all of the above. I’m just another person trying to find my way in this world. Until recently, I was unsure what my path in this life would consist of. Like many others I was between I know what I want to do but not sure if that’s what I’m supposed to do. I am currently finishing my degree in something that has nothing to do with becoming a writer or entrepreneur so automatically it qualifies me to become one right! Follow me as I go through this journey called life to impact and encourage one person at a time.

  1. There are two answers to that question: never and now. I prefer now. Take handful of life and give it all you have. Perhaps boyfriend is up for an adventure. Adventures are best done in pairs.

    I simply sleep on it. One night. Two nights. Three nights. My first thought in the morning usually holds the answer. If it doesn’t I thank Jehovah God anyway, for giving me the blessing of choice. I have the power to choose my highest and best life. Knowing this usually prompts me to make better decisions!

  3. 🙂 I used to just go with my gut instincts only 🙂 now it depends I sometimes would evaluate the pros and cons. I feel it’s always best to peruse what makes one happy and like it is said what is there to lose. 🙂 Try act stand by the outcome and move on


  4. depends on what area you want to move to, your budget, pray about and see where God leads you. About the relationship since it’s only been 6 months, I would just let it go.There’s plenty of fish in the sea. Good luck!

    There is no right or wrong time. You just have to prove yourself that you could get things done whatever you do.

  6. A quote that I find prevalent to many things today is “Don’t let fear stop you from being happy”. Yes a new opportunity may take you very far away but you never know what new doors it will open. If you don’t take advantage of the opportunities given, you will regret it. You could be suppressing yourself from great success!
    When it comes to relationships, if your significant other truly cares about you then they will not hold you back. They should want you to be happy and succeed. Yes you may both be sad at first, but your relationship will only get stronger.
    Good luck with your decisions! Whatever you decide, hope it is for the best and don’t look back!
