Changing your mind

We chose a path and took it.

And now that we’re partway up the trail, we’ve hit a lookout point, a multi-tined fork that offers alternate directions.

We can insist that our initial destination was always correct and stick to that path, no matter what new information has come our way.

Or we can acknowledge that we’ve now seen more—new answers we never could have known at the trailhead, new sights we could only see from this vantage point. We can pivot.
