Overwhelmed with Change and Choices…

I’m…fixing to…take my life…my career…in a bit of a different direction… now…I have to look at the phrase…fixing to…how do you fix to…was it broken…I have no idea…but I know it is a good ole Southern phrase which I Know, Own, and Live Your Truth! ~Berthalove…

Anyway…all fixing aside…as I contemplate the changes that I am making… it’s easy to become overwhelmed…am I making the right decisions…or would it be better to do…this…instead of…that…or…should I just leave things the way they are…and go on like it’s been…maybe you can relate

Bertha…whisper-shouts in my ear…it’s okaybe yourself…listen to your heartremember…what sounds the most glamorous isn’t always…make your decisions from a place of truth…choose an action…you can choose another tomorrow…choose what you’re comfortable with…step out of your comfort zone…it’s all good…as long…as you own your truth…and act from it…

Hmmm…somehow…I’m no longer feeling overwhelmed…and…the first action up for grabs…is…well…I’ll tell you later…

Jane…

How about you…how do you handle the overwhelm of change and choices? I’d love to hear in the comments…

To Blue or Not to Blue…

Yesterday I went for a pedicure…and…as I perused the wall of polish colors I Jane Carrollcould choose from…I was drawn to…varying shades of…blue…

I chose a nice orangish-red…

Why…well…because…frankly…blue…isn’t a natural color for nails

Of course you know that…Berthawith her nails done in Shocking Chartreuse…had something to say about that…starting by pointing out the fact that nails don’t grow in as an orangy-red…either…nothing natural about the color I chose…

But…all my life…I’ve chosen from an array of oranges, pinks, and reds…

Then…she not so gently reminds me…choice of nail color is a lot like my life…just because I am familiar and comfortable with something…doesn’t make it be…natural…doesn’t make it be…well…right…

I know she’s right…I know this is just my comfort zone…and…just like with those areas of my life she is referring to…it’s hard to see the possibilities…of doing things differently…of…being different…but…I think I’m ready to go there…

Hmmm…seems like a polish change is in order…
