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.

When you learn how to do that, then please let me know. It is something I need to work on also.
