Prompt for December 24: Change of heart. Did you have a change of heart about something or someone in your life this year? What or who was it? Why?
There’s a lot of things I tell myself about myself I realized this year.
I’m not patient. I’m not good at domestic tasks. I’m not creative. I get bored too easily. I’m not adventurous.
I firmly believe that knowing thyself and to thyself be true is an important part of one’s happiness. I don’t want to force myself to be someone I’m not.
But where’s that line between being yourself and not being afraid to step into another version of yourself?
I don’t know. But I don’t want the line to be fear I’d fail or fear how others would perceive my actions.
A change of heart means that a decision your made earlier no longer applies. Or what you thought was true is not right now. Since humans aren’t meant to be static, it only follows that as we grow older, we change and evolve. What we believed at 15 we don’t believe at 30. Thankfully.
I can have a change of heart in how I think about myself and what I think I can do and am capable of. Some things will always be true for me. But some things are meant to change. Instead of getting caught up in this or that, I leave myself the opening for a change of heart.
