I process things so much better when I take some time to really think about them. We're going through some organizational leadership changes at church. In our meeting yesterday we started to discuss the ramifications of that. It was my first time to realize what it meant. So I reacted. I felt right. I knew I was right. I spoke passionately. But I was wrong.
I needed time to process. As I thought about it last night, I realized why I felt the way I did, and that it was really just pride that made me feel that way. So I talked to my boss and told him that I realized I was wrong.
Things just go so much better for me when I don't have to make an instant reaction on a big decision. JM
