The shift happened when I painted my toenails blue. It happened with the housemate candidate who had a fresh mani/pedi in the most beautiful color of blue. Nails just the right length, squared, velvety, pillowey blue. I coveted.

Within two days I had blue toenails. I dared to make the shift. Not the kind of daring it would take for me to ride a zip line. The kind that involves the moving of a deep fault line. So deep the difference isn’t felt right away. Yet every day when I see my toes, I know. I’m different in a deep fundamental way.

So I laughed when a housemate moved in and out within hours. The stress just wasn’t there. I laughed at the humanness of all of us. Could see myself making abrupt course shifts without having to go through the tears she exhibited. Could see myself making these shifts with the tears when I move in a direction that appeared scary to me.

I had a party that celebrated another shift. I retired from the world of gotsta work. Eliminated the shouldas to leave room for creating income doing what I love in a way I enjoy it. Celebrated my progression to truly being my own boss. Still processing that shift. And, that’s okay with me. I’m giving myself time to discover and explore.

This shift in thought is a little like the one I made when I completed my MBA program. I promised myself then that I was never going through another degreed program unless I really wanted what was behind that degree door. It wasn’t a promise to stop learning or even one to stop going to classes. It was freeing and when I decided I wanted to become a hypnotherapist. I was free to take that program.

The basics of who I am and what I want in my life remain the same they were when I was little. Travel, exploring, adventuring and meeting people all over the world. I like talking to people and discovering who they are and what they are about. I enjoy listening to their stories. I love travel. I get a zing when the plane takes off or the car heads out of town that is like no other in my life. Maybe that’s the reward I get for the work I do and maybe it becomes a part of my work. I’m willing to let that develop.

So I’ve shifted. I’m the same and I’m different. I’m okay with all of that.
