We Can Change Our Mind

Today I just wanted to write about something I’ve been thinking about lately. I used to think it was bad to change my mind. People would think: “She just doesn’t know what she wants”. But who cares? It can actually be good for you to change your mind!

Sometimes we stick to decisions we once made because we don’t like changing our minds. We think it makes us look indecisive like we’re unable to stay true to our word. The truth is, things change. Life happens. Seasons flow. Sometimes change benefits us. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting our lives to reflect it.

Sometimes what we once wanted doesn’t speak to us anymore. And sometimes those things we once thought so hard for don’t represent us as we grow. Our priorities, interests, and desires move on. It’s inevitable that some of our ideas and beliefs will need to change. That’s not a bad thing. In fact, it is a sign of progression.

We change. Constantly. And that’s the only thing that doesn’t change. The fact is that we are constantly evolving. Constantly discovering. We just have to realize how this is okay.

It’s okay to adjust your direction. Find the courage to keep adjusting, to keep learning and growing. What matters the most is that you never ignore what lights you up.

Don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s okay to have a moment of uncertainty about life. It’s a transformative period to find your purpose.

Hope this post will make you reflect on this topic and make you feel better if you’re confused about changing something in your life. ❤

  1. Thank you so much for this post, this is exactly what I needed to hear at the moment. For more than half of my life, I thought I knew what I wanted to become. I studied in that field, studied a second time because my family pushed me to study something “safe” (aka not artsy), but always believed that I would return to my dream job. But now, after doing a traineeship, I found that it’s not at all what I envisioned and just not a good fit for me.
    That doesn’t mean that I want to work in my second field now, or that I know what to do with my life exactly. But the traineeship gave me some clarification and gave me some new ideas to try out. And so, I will continue on my journey, wherever it may lead me. Thank you for confirming that this is okay, while most other people give me the feeling that I should’ve known what to do with my life a while ago already ♥️

    1. Marci, thank you for sharing your journey. I found your story inspiring to continue my search for what I want and what is a good professional fit for me. I just finished my masters in a field that I thought I loved. After a break from it, my whole body stiffness on a very thought of coming back to it. So I think, we need to be brave and not listen to people’s unhelpful comments and pave a new path for ourselves. Let’s do it our way!

  2. Just recently, I’m covered with uncertainties don’t know what to do, and don’t know what I want. I started doubting myself, “Am I good enough?” And keep answering “I doubt so”, I’m baffled. The things that used to be my favorite doing, feels like I’m not good anymore. Till’ I decided to give myself a break from everything and urge myself a change. Hence, today I saw this blog and perhaps this is actually a sign to continue the change I wanted so long. Thank you for this!

  4. This is a great read. Keep up the good work

    1. I so much wanted to hear this, my best friend pointed out that I keep changing and I am not the same person. But I knew I actually couldn’t agree exactly what I said a week. Or the way I behave it is not exactly same always sometimes I will be very happy or sad Or feeling any other emotion which doesn’t resemble the person I was yesterday. I think I should keep going as change constant and you cant exactly be the person you were yesterday. Its difficult and I feel like I should stick her version of me because she doesn’t feel comfortable with me anymore. And I miss her but I should not go back wait explore.

  5. I like that the bulletin board offers options for both local pickup and shipping, accommodating different buyer preferences.
