Octavia Butler, a Black feminist speculative fiction writer once said, “There is nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns.” While literally, she was talking about space, she was also speaking the truth about discovering new paths and charting new courses because fear of the unknown has killed more dreams than the actual “risks” we often find ourselves afraid of.
Oh, and by the way, it is also totally and completely okay to change your mind.
