a mid-run epiphany

Goldilocks has been a nickname of mine since, well, about as long as I can remember. (For obvious blonde and curly reasons.)

But lately, I've realized that the nickname fits in ways that go beyond the ringlets...

I have a tendency to try out lots and lots of things before picking just one, unable to make a decision or choose what's best for me: I think too hot or too cold, too big or too small before I let myself believe - or even consider - that something could be "just right."

Call it hesitance, call it caution. Call it indecisive or unlucky or picky, even. It may be all of those things or maybe none of them. I don't really know. 

But I can make a decision about one thing: when you find that thing, that person, that passion that feels "just right" - you know. 

And you also know that it was worth the wait.

I am the same way. I will choose something then change my mind, then choose it again... it's never ending.

this is so true. my fiance struggles with this. but it's what i love about him. i used to tease him when we were first dating that he would all of a sudden realize one day that he made the wrong pick. so far so good!

I'm the same way! I do a little bit of everything until I'm positive about what I want to do!

Those are not bad qualities, deary. It just shows that you try out all the options to obtain the most information as possible before making a final decision! That's what a lot of people FORGET to do when they make decisions. I think you've been on the right track :)
