“Every time we ponder a thought, act on an impulse, or dwell on a desire, we are setting in motion a cause that will have a future effect. Mindfulness enables us to choose wisely.”
When we make any decision in life it is important that we are thinking things through clearly and with an open heart and open mind. It is then that we can choose wisely. Today’s quote by Tamara Levitt serves as a reminder that our thoughts can be very powerful in good ways and bad ways. When we do something on a whim or an impulse we don’t always consider the long term effects that it may have on others or even us.
There is no sense in going full steam ahead on something without considering what we might be heading towards to. Sometimes in life we can’t always be in a rush with our decisions. Remember it is important that we take in each moment as it comes and learn to embrace each and everyone of those moments. It helps lead us to making level headed decisions in the long run.
