Changing Your Mind

When was the last time you changed your mind about something important? I was thinking about this today and decided to write about it. I’ve also been writing about some old memories for my grandson and my great grandchildren. I will be able to print them out and create a book of memories for my family. Changing your mind about something though, can actually change your life course. Have you ever thought about that? Did you change your mind about marrying someone? Or about taking a job? What about going on a trip? Or getting a pet? Life is full of decisions that we have to make, almost on a daily basis. Shall I do this or that? Sometimes the decisions don’t make a whole lot of difference one way or the other, but sometimes they do. I think I will write about some of MY decisions. Good and bad. Then, I will consider the consequences or outcome of the decisions and how my life was affected for good or bad. I just wrote about one BIG decision and that was the one I made about going to Okinawa. I endangered my life on that one, but I lived to tell about it, nevertheless. I will post it later this week.

@IreneVincent my big decision was made when I chose to bring my mom back to her homeland Latvia. It has been a good and bad decision but now I so want to return to my homeland the US but I don't know if I'll ever be able to.

I wondered why you moved to Latvia. What it is like there?

@IreneVincent that info will be coming up in my posts. It is quite different here and of course the climate could also be better. We don't have too many hot days in the summer.

Yes changing your mind will effect your life and I had to go back in later yearsto finish college because I made a stupid deci sion as a nineteen year old and dropped out of my second year in college.B ut at least I did fi ally get my B A iu English but at age 45 not 22. After that I started to mature and made much wiser decisions

Well, at least, you did it. Congrats on that. If young people would just think about their future prospects and work for a better situation in life, they would more than likely end up with a better future.

Hi Alice. Isnt that the truth. Our life choices can have such an effect on our whole life, the whole outcome of our life both good and bad. I changed my mind about my career path and that was a good choice that did affect me life in a good way. Now on the other hand some of my impulsivity in personal relationships choices were life altering and in a very bad way. I am glad to hear you are writing this stuff down for your family.

@IreneVincent I agree whole heartedly with those two bad choices being life altering.

A couple of years ago I realised that I didn't hate parsnips.

As far as I know, I've never tasted a parsnip. I do know what it is, but it just doesn't look appetizing to me. Food choices are something to consider though. Often we assume we wouldn't like the taste of a certain food, but if we are brave enough to try it, we are sometimes surprised.

@IreneVincent My mother made a stunning chilli parsnip soup that converted me.
