And it makes so much sense that if you allow yourself some time to digest the change, it will be easier than if you spontaneously move from Toronto to Mumbai or Tokyo expecting it will be all easy, and after the initial enthusiasm fades away either start resenting the locals for "being so weird", or yourself for being such a sucker at adapting to life there.

I'd say the original article is short enough to read. The summary, while somewhat accurate, doesn't really convey what the article's real message is. Read the post, it's short, and could be very helpful if you're in the process of shifting vibration / trying new things.

Like any summary, yours has to omit detail. For some people, (some of) that detail will be significant to their understanding of what the posting is saying.
People who are thoroughly familiar with the subject-matter of a blog, article or book-chapter, may be able to work from a summary which for them is a trigger-reminder of all the unstated detail.
People who are not familiar will need the detail in order to benefit from the posting. For example, in this case (from the first quarter of the blog):
> Old opportunities will dry up. New opportunities will begin to appear.
> Invitations that once attracted you will seem boring, while others will become interesting to you.
> People will change how they relate to you. Some will become more distant while others will zoom closer.
None of that is implicit in "doing something new can be a bit uncomfortable so you have to work at it", unless someone creates that implicit meaning for themselves by familiarity with the material.
Summarising blogs, articles, etc is, I find, a powerful technique for 'fixing' them in myself. I use a multi-stage process of summarising (which I've been meaning for some time to post on about on this forum!) which helps me know where I really am in relation to digesting and acting upon the material. Basically, the more condensed the summary that I naturally relate to, the more I have absorbed the material and the more it has become second nature to me. For example, the most condensed summary that I work off is for Steve's posting "Your Personal Accountability System" for which my most-condensed summary is in fact one of the sub-headings: "Systems Trump Intentions". For me that summarises it all. I wouldn't though presume to say that that's "all the posting says"
And, working off summaries is a dynamic process. I find sometimes I need to go 'down the scale' again to a more detailed level if I've taken my eye off the ball of actioning the material in a posting and making it part of the fabric of my daily life. Just having a few-word summary of a posting isn't much help if those few words no longer 'speak' to you the way they once did.

Lol, I just decided to click on your name for some weird reason, and the first post I clicked on was this one. I ended up reading the blog too.
hahaha, funny how things work. I want to move to NY in the next 2-3 weeks because my life has taken a new path. I'm planning things out now. Is it coincidental that I just happened to click your name (first time I've doing this in a long time btw), and the first blog I read is one about staying the course and moving? I think not . The universe works in miraculous ways.
