On Tuesday, I wrote about making more productive choices - what about just making different choices? You know, like changing your mind?
A friend of mine posted on Facebook the other day about how her daughter wanted them to go skiing together. She replied explaining to her daughter that she was too busy, listing all the things she needed to get done. Then her daughter simply said, "Mom, you could just change your mind."
The result? They went skiing and had a wonderful evening together.
The parents in the room might read this as a child who is really good at getting their way, which is very much what happened, but it's not all that happened. It's also a brilliant reminder: we can always change our minds.
I have been realizing more and more lately that almost all of the times I feel obligated to do a thing, it's really just a choice I made, and I could change my mind.
(I usually don't, of course, but it's nice to know that I could.)
