You know what the best part about being a grown up is? You get to do whatever you want. Right?
Good or bad. There will always be consequences for our decisions, but it is your prerogative, to make the decisions for your life.
You get to decide the kind of person you want to be, no matter what.
So, guess what that means, you get to change your mind about anything, at any point in your life, whenever you want to.
I know we can dive down the rabbit hole with this line of thinking. But, you get my point right? This is a fascinating topic. We can explore it in detail at a later time. But for today, I am keeping it basic.
No matter what, you get to make decisions for your life, even if others do not agree with them, because you are the grown up. (and yes, I am talking to grown ups here in this blog)
This goes for your decision about the church too.
If you were baptized into the church at 8 years old and stayed on the path outlined for you because of that decision at 8 years old, you bet you get to change your mind later on down the road if you feel that is best for you.
I love the saying from Maya Angelou...
"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, you do better."
If you have studied this out in your mind (see what I did there?) and you have come to a conclusion for yourself, follow it, wherever it may lead.
We have already discussed not knowing exactly where you will end up, in another blog, but you do have an internal knowing. Your own intuition. Always follow it.
You are now a grown up and you get to change your mind. Even about the big stuff.
Give yourself this freedom. Also, allow this freedom for others, even if, your loved ones do not see it the same way you do. They are also grown ups, making their own decisions about their own life.
There is freedom, for you, along this line of thinking.
Give yourself that gift. It will set you free.
Of course, I can coach you through it. ;)
