My word for 2021 is shift. Like everyone I know, I’ve learned a lot, since this time last year. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that change and uncertainty just are. Since I’m not in control of much more than which yoga pants, Zoom-appropriate top, and slippers I’ll wear each day, I needed to figure out how I could deal with all the change and uncertainty. That’s where shifting comes in.
For me, shifts involve acceptance and adjustment. I know I don’t have much control, but I have unlimited choices. I can shift.
Some of my recent shifts have been pretty significant. Some have been tiny. Some haven’t happened, yet. And I’m sure I’ll make a lot of shifts I can’t even imagine
Sometimes, a shift can simply mean a change in scenery. And while this scenery looks a lot like home, it’s in South Carolina’s low country, Berkeley County to be exact.
So, not only did Tom and I get to experience different walls, we also got to experience different water, trees, and gators. The big guy pictured above is named Carl. He proudly posed for us and then let us know we could move on, anytime. We did.
Another shift, this week, involved the noise, or lack thereof.
What kinds of shifts have you experienced lately?
