Don't Make Permanent Decisions on Temporary Emotions
I'm the worst about this! The Worst! So my New Years goal is to think things through a little better. If I'm having a bad day then I need to wait until a better day comes along to make a decision that may change my life. Of course if I'm having a bad day and choose to eat a Strawberry Cheesecake blizzard, that would be ok. Or if I choose to watch sad movies and cry it out... once again a fine thing to do. But if I make a choice to get a really cute puppy.... well maybe not such a good choice. Then there is buying something for myself, certainly not a cure all. Not that buying something is a permanent decision, but I may get stuck with something I didn't really need at all. So the big goal is to think things through a little better, think about the big picture. If I'm having temporary emotions, I should not make decisions that could make me worse off in the long run. Lesson hopefully learned.
