I Changed My Mind

A woman is allowed to change her mind as often as she wants, and her adoring partner might just as well get used to it!

A woman is allowed to change her mind as often as she wants, and her long-suffering adoring partner might just as well get used to it! On the other hand, when a man changes his mind it’s a sign of weakness, indecision or initial misjudgement.

Lest you begin to think that there’s unacceptable sexism going on, let me assure you that I am being playful and light-hearted. I do so as a means of introducing the topic of changing your mind, or more specifically, changing my mind.

Last week, Marion said there’s something different about me.

Yes, I do feel different. I’m changing my mind. There were parts of my mind that needed changing and I’m changing them.

I am reading a book by Shirzad Carmine called Positive Intelligence, and I am in the middle of an online course. Positive Intelligence is a fancy term for changing your mind.

The big question is… Does it work? My gut feeling is that it does, but the proof of the pudding will be in about six months or more. You see, although I already see that my mind is changing, I’ve linked this process with an ongoing life struggle that I’m hoping to defeat. I am about 10-15kg overweight, and I’ve tried many different approaches to my overeating.

It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to has power over you.

How will changing my mind help me to lose weight? How will changing your mind help you to lose weight? Or, for that matter, overcome your stubborn obstacles, or become the person you want to be? Yes, the person you were born to be. Born to be, but not realised because your mind has thrived on keeping you stuck.

Changing my mind, one thought at a time. When head is good so is everything, including some fast biking and slow gardening.
