This tiny question could save us a LOT of pain! Can I just be honest? Sometimes we hit our 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and we’re still making the decisions a teenager would make - sometimes decisions a kid would make in public school. We’re chasing what catches our eye, we’re chasing our hormones, we’re retaliating like we’re still inside the chain-link fence around the playground, we’re calling people names, trying to prove we’re better, hosting massive suck-your-thumb pity parties… I mean, the list goes on! And the specific question we need to ask is first, How old am I? and is it WISE? Am I being responsible, am I thinking clearly, am I making a mature, wise decision? And what will I think of this decision 2 years, 5 years, 10 years from now? Will I be glad to have it written into my story - for my kids and grandkids to read? Is it WISE? can spare you a lot of pain - and keep you alive longer, happier, healthier - and maybe even out of jail!
