Take Control of Your Life. Live Where You Want!

take control of your life

In a world filled with endless choices, your home should reflect your preferences and lifestyle. You can choose to take control of your life and live where and how you want by choosing a home and community that aligns with your lifestyle desires and needs.

Assess Your Surroundings

Can you look in any direction in your home and see something that makes you smile? Or is it cluttered with things you’ve accumulated and don’t give much thought to anymore? Your home should be a constant reminder of who you are, with spaces and furnishings that make you happy. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer minimalist or love big bursts of colors and plenty of “stuff”. Surround yourself with satisfying and gratifying pieces of your life.


It might help to shake things up. Move furnishings around—furniture, décor, wall art, and rugs. Shop from one room for items to place in another area. A little change might be all you need. If that isn’t enough to help you feel satisfied with your home environment, it may be worth finding a home and community that is more aligned with your lifestyle desires.

Explore Options and Use Your Power to Choose

Stop looking at the limits in your life. Change your perspective and look at opportunities.


Explore areas that might give you the lifestyle you’ve been dreaming about. Do you have a bucket list? If not, don’t wait. Start one. If you already have it, dig in and learn more. Think about the possibility of moving to a place on your list. Don’t let negative thinking cloud your decision-making. That perspective might be costing you joy!


About that bucket list…as you work on it, think about the activities you enjoy and how you can have more of them in your life. If you love long, leisurely walks, what do you like to look at during your wandering—e.g., a lake or ocean, beach, woods, country scenery, or urban landscapes? Where should you live to have that opportunity on a steady basis?


Are you an avid golfer, tennis player, swimmer, or maybe a pickleball player? How are you indulging those passions right now? You need to live where you can experience the activities that bring you happiness.


Are you missing family or friends? By choosing a place to live that is closer to them, you can be with the people who are truly important in your life. Don’t let the years slip by while you postpone your decision to move. The kids are growing up while you’re just thinking about it. The same goes for special friends. Think about how much quality they bring to your life.

Create Your Ideal Surroundings

Your home is your sanctuary, and it should make you smile at every turn, whether you prefer a minimalist style or a vibrant setting filled with color. If you’ve decided to move to a new location, whether in the same area or somewhere else, consider buying or building a new home that will give you the personalization options you need so your new home reflects your tastes and lifestyle and makes you happy every time you walk through the door.


One of the most sought-after home amenities of the last few years is an outdoor kitchen/entertaining area, according to a 2023 Forbes Global Properties Luxury Agent Poll. Beautiful outdoor patios and courtyards with fireplaces, kitchens, and lounge areas are becoming increasingly popular. They make spending time outdoors as comfortable as being inside and increase the usable area of your home. With thoughtful lighting and furnishings, these spaces can create a special atmosphere.


Make a list of everything you want in a home when looking for a new home so you don’t overlook something valuable to you such as an outdoor living area or flex space like a versatile bonus suite.
