Permanent plans for your temporary emotions?

Today, my friend Emily posted this quote on her facebook:

“Don’t make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion.” ~Unknown

This small little sentence really spoke to me right now. I think that too often, we make decisions based upon the temporary satisfaction that we will receive, and while it will temporarily satisfy you, long term, it’s a bad bad choice.

I have been having this dilemma a lot lately. I think that as you get older, you start to realize that your time on this earth is becoming fairly limited, and you want to start making all the right kinds of choices and decisions that will be better for you later down the road.

So often, we are driven by some kind of emotion that fuels us, that we make bad decisions.

However, I do really believe that nothing is really, truly, permanent. You can always make the best out of a bad situation, or turn things around.

A large part of why I write in this blog is to leave my kids with something to take with them should I not have the chance to tell it to their face.

My advice..

Don’t be afraid to take chances. Try new things. Explore. Just use your common sense. Think about what you are doing. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.

 

Speak Your Mind
