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.
You change all the time. You’re probably not the same person you were a year, a month, a week, and even a day ago. So if you think about it more deeply, it’s weird if you never change your mind.
Forget the thought that “Changing your mind means you don’t know what you want.” Really? I don’t think so. It’s more like this: Changing your mind is a sign that you’re learning. It’s all a matter of perspective.
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. ❤
