Who doesn’t love a change of heart?

in change, definition, women

Someone asked me recently if I was fickle. I had to think about it. When I looked it up, the definition was inconsistent and given to change. But it came from an old English word that meant deceitful.

What I want to know is when did changing become a bad thing? There is an inherent difference between lying and changing your mind.

I guess one could say “Wait. I changed my mind, I did steal your lunch,” but I think most of us can all agree that that is deceit. And just downright wrong. Who steals lunch?!?

I think fickle has gotten a bad rap. I’ve heard La donna è mobile. I know what people are saying about women and apparently spring. (*Gasp* And it’s my favorite season!)

And it’s true. I propose that being changeable makes you able to evolve and move throughout life. If nothing was able to change, there wouldn’t be butterflies, humans would cower at lightning, and I wouldn’t be writing this blog.

So I proudly answer the question: Damn straight I’m fickle!

A dot-com, how spiffy! I like the look of it. And I’m honored that I’m on the blogroll!

Also, I agree with you–I think being able to change and adapt and make spontaneous decisions is important! Otherwise, life gets boring. xD

Eeee! I know, right? I’m loving it! And of course you’re on the blogroll lady!

Adaptation=the reason we’re all here, right?
