"It's probably important that it's your right shoe...since it stood out in your mind...but I don't know what that would be."

It could just be that one depresses the gas pedal with your right foot? That's why I concluded that it must be the right one. And I am having a hard time moving forward with the next phase of my life (mostly due to indecision and the fear of failure; it's important that my next move be the "right" one).

There you go! You're right!

So what's with "borrowing someone else's." I need a life coach?

Not necessarily. I would take it more as...getting a different perspective? Maybe kind of like "Walk a mile in my moccasins"?

And you know...it could be as literal as "I need a new pair of shoes for a job interview" or something like that.

Well, it's retirement, so... I will need a new house. Little old woman who lived in a shoe?

Yeah, it very well could be. I'm curious, have you used that phrase in the past? "There was an old lady who lived in a shoe"? Your shoe doesn't fit your lifestyle anymore, and it's holding you back?

Not really, beyond being read fairy tales as a child. Could it mean the plans I'm (tentatively) making for a new lifestyle post-retirement are the wrong ones? This is like consulting an Eight Ball...

As you talk it out, does it ring true to you? These are all signals your subconscious is telling you. Are you feeling trepiditious about your new plans?


Maybe you feel like you could use someone else's perspective (shoe) to move forward with your plans?

Yes, I have tons of trepidation about my future. I probably need a life coach. But I thought dreams represented the subconscious, tipping you off to things of which you weren't already consciously aware?
