I have changed my mind...

...not about anything this moment. I was just thinking about how many times we tend to talk in absolutes. Never. Always. I will never... We see this in politics, in academia, in relationships. Those who claim a thought absolutely tend to think that those who change their minds are not to be trusted, that they are wishy-washy. Yet changing our minds can be a result of an experience, a revelation, learning or mere appreciation of a different perspective. Changing our minds can be a sign of growth, understanding, wisdom, adaptability and mental plasticity.

Today is a good day to change our mind, to be open to new ideas, different points of view or ways of doing things. How about we have a different thought today?
