Shifting mentally

I am always moving forward.  I have been since I came out of the womb.  Not sure if it had to do with wanting to get out from underneath the people who raised me although I am giving that a lot of thought to that these days.  There has always been this fire inside me that needs to climb every mountain that crosses my path.  It appears that looking back there have been many mountains that I have come in contact with and scaled.  I am well aware of that.  I got to the point where I did not want to climb every mountain.  It was pure exhaustion that got me to that realization.  Yet I had to understand the part of me that never allowed me to unpack my climbing gear.

I have written about slowing down every fall, post the summer relaxation period, for the past few years.  I definitely want to be ahead of the curve and work on many projects but at a difference pace.  Over the past year, I have learned to do this and feel confident at the same time.   It feels insanely refreshing.  I am enjoying the gig I have built for myself in different ways and that is pretty sweet.  I get to meet amazing people and be engaged intellectually at a pretty high level.  I get to make a difference in other lives and that is really important to me. I get to make an impact on the economy by creating jobs and businesses among other things.

Our time in Los Angeles is coming to an end in the next few weeks.  I am really looking forward to returning to my hometown of NYC.  There has been a paradigm shift in my thinking.  I am not necessarily moving in a different direction but am evolving in a new direction and it really feels fantastic.
