Wow! That was a really great article! So true, something I am working on learning.

Just last week I impulsively wanted to do something and my husband told me to just give it one day before I acted. As the day went on and I thought about it I realized that it wasn’t the great idea I originally thought it was. It was a course I was going to sign up for that wouldn’t really have moved me forward and would have cost a lot of money. I was happy he kept me from acting at the moment.

Even at this age, I’m finding things about myself that I didn’t realize. Impulsiveness can be an asset in some situations but taking that beat to breathe is a wiser and more pragmatic way to live.

Thank you for that sage advice.
