I read a book called "Fireproof Happiness." Before reading this book, I felt that hoping and wishing were the same things. However, after reading the book, I learned that they are different. The author says that hope is an active thing while wishing is passive. With hope, you take action and can change your future. However, wishing is something that you just wish would happen without taking any action. The book changed my mind and I can see in my life how hoping and wishing can be used differently.

It was 15 minutes ago. I had to go grocery shopping, but it's so cold outdoors so I just made coffee and am currently reading something while drinking coffee.

It is very recently that I changed my mind about something significant and that's about planning. I did that when most of my plans came crashing down. Do now I just learn to plan but not be too hopeful.

In 2020, I had to choose high school subjects, and it felt like a big deal because it would shape my future. The career path I wanted was too expensive, and I almost gave up. I even filled out the admission form for a different option. During those tough days, I was really worried and felt guilty about my choices.

Right before submitting the form, I changed my mind and decided to pursue my dream. I got a new form and admission for the subject I truly wanted. It was a hard decision because it meant facing financial challenges in the coming years. Despite the uncertainty, I'm trying to be brave and give my best to follow my goal. Whether I have to work hard for money or face other obstacles, I'm determined not to give up.

I still don't know if it was the right decision or not. I'm unsure if I'm happy or if I regret it. What I do know is that I have to keep fighting and giving my all. I won't quit until my last breath. I still have a lot of studies ahead before reaching that stage, and I'm struggling to know if my decision was worth it. I feel relieved after sharing these thoughts. Thanks a lot for asking about it.

I seem to have a habit of making New Year's resolutions and then changing my mind about keeping them or at least modifying them. These are usually connected to diet and exercise. So, yesterday I changed my mind about sticking to Whole 30 because I went out for dinner with family, and there was nothing on the menu that was allowed, so I changed my mind and ate something I said I would not eat for 30 days.

The last time I changed my mind about something incredibly significant was when I decided not to pursue the degree I wanted and instead, I did what my father wanted because he considered it more prestigious. I realized within the first semester that it was a mistake. I was trapped in an incredibly difficult program because I was on a scholarship and wasn't allowed to switch programs. That regret stayed with me for years, but I finished it successfully and pursued what I wanted after university.

I think it might be tough for you, but I'm glad to see you keep chasing your dreams. I hope you achieve success and everything you want.

The last time I changed my mind about something was today. I changed the food that I was about to eat.

I'm going through a series of changes in my life right now. I came to realize that not everything should control you and who you are. You have to respect your own boundaries for people to respect it. There are a lot of things that have changed my perception towards life. I think it is necessary for every one of us to reflect on the things that bother us.

The last time I changed my mind was when I was choosing my career choice back in my school days. I think I made the right choice although it wasn't easy.

There are times when you feel like doing something and your gut immediately tells you not to. I've had feelings like this before and was always sure to follow my guts.

The last time I changed my mind was just two weeks before.

I used to think I was not a self-starter. But when I wanted to blog about a particular topic, I'd set up my website within two days.

That was when I realized my flaw of naming myself as 'not-a-self-starter,' and changed my mind about it.
