And what if she shifts again,
Does it mean she’s flighty
Or just curious,
Indecisive or simply open-minded,
Flaunting the rules
Or following her heart,
And does it even matter
What she’s called
If the shift sets her soul on fire?

I’ll admit it, I change my mind a lot.
I get lit up by an idea and I want to go do that.
And then a new idea emerges. And another.
I’m interested in SO many things.
And I want to do all of them.
Conventional wisdom says “pick something and become an expert at it”.
And that’s just not accessible to me, mainly because I don’t want it to be.
I enjoy having broad knowledge and interests.
I enjoy using my broad knowledge and interests to connect with people and learn more.
And to connect people to each other.
I suppose it’s not that I keep changing my mind so much as that I keep adding new dynamics of awareness.
And each shift seems to magically intersect with what I’m already doing, as well as take me to new level.
Still, those old messages about picking one thing linger.
Maybe it’s time I gave myself permission to be my full self, even if that means I have to purge some old messages or I seem some way to the outside world.
Maybe it’s time for you too?
