Taking the time to contemplate. Look before you leap. Haste makes waste...
When you are an impulsive person like I am, contemplation doesn't always come easy!
I like the second definition below. To meditate on or ponder.
Contemplation can take many forms.
It's all good. And so worth the time too.
Do you find it easy to contemplate life's big decisions before you make them?
1. To look at attentively and thoughtfully.
2. To consider carefully and at length; meditate on or ponder: contemplated the problem from all sides; contemplated the mystery of God.
3. To have in mind as an intention or possibility: contemplate marriage; forced by the accident to contemplate retirement.
