Think First… Then Act

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Fearsome Weirdos Ghouls of Yule Cards - Harmey the ElfToday’s draw is the “Harmey the Elf” card from the Fearsome Weirdos Ghouls of Yule deck.

Harmey the Elf says… make sure the solution isn’t worse than the problem! For example, trying to use clumping litter as traction would cause more problems than it fixes. Breaking the ice above the gutter without a ladder to make sure you don’t damage anything would cause more problems than it fixes. Trying to force the screen door back onto its tract without a butter knife and a little patience would cause more problems than it will fix.

Pay attention to the things you do today and make sure that the ingenuity and solutions you reach for are solid and grounded. The potential for causing more problems than you fix is high if you don’t take care to do things right the first time around or think prior to acting.

I waited to take off for Ms B’s until the roads had a bit of time to thaw, leaving in the afternoon instead of first thing in the morning.
