Funny, I was thinking about just posting a quote or a picture…then I came across the above image on Happy Black Woman. I’ve been a fan of Rosetta for a minute but just not an avid reader of the site. I know. I need to do better. Nonetheless, my friend Frantzie sent details about HBW’s NYC tour stop and I started poking around. Didn’t take long for my grace signpost to pop up. It simply said, It’s Okay to Change Your Mind.
I’m currently in a season of transition, seeking clarity on a few things. As I seek and wait and ponder and think, I’m thinking of changing my mind about something I decided to do not long ago. I do a lot of ‘mind changing’. I do it partly because I’m a ‘what if-er’. Partly because I move quickly thinking if I don’t take the chance, I’ll miss out. This has been my way. With the good and the bad, I make my choices and live with the consequences- and benefits. Yet no matter what I do, I find myself feeling guilty. Guilty that I’m ‘doing it again’, that I’m somehow letting someone down, that even though I’m making the choice with the best information I have, somehow I’m doing something wrong. This IS my life, right?
I know my friends have my best interest at heart but sometimes, I don’t need to hear the why, what or whens, I just want to hear, “It’s Okay.” This time I don’t know what I’ll decide, but no matter what I do, it will be MY decision and it will be okay to change my mind.
