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
Does anyone out there keep charging cords that no longer work? This week I realized I not only keep them, but I had a specific basket in which I stored them.
Then the shift happened. I’m getting rid of my faulty charging cords and useless-to-me cables/plugs. Not to fret, they’re not going in my trash can. I’m following the advice of folks like Earth911 and Family Handman.
For some of you, this might not seem like a big shift, but it is for me. When I’m not sure what to do with something that no longer works or works for me, I tend to postpone doing anything. So, this shift at least points me in a good direction, to take the next right step.
What kinds of shifts have you experienced lately?
