Delay On The Dock
Springing into action is generally considered a laudable thing to do. But it’s not always the best thing for us.
Joyful Springers delay on the dock. Before taking important action, they take the time to make some preparations.
Plowing ahead can move you forward in life, but it can often move you into messes you could have avoided if you’d just taken a bit of time to line up your ducks first. Whenever you’re chomping at the bit, take that as a sign that you may need to rein yourself in a little before you take off. A bit of judicious planning can make an action journey a whole lot more fun.
[Sweet Pea's back. Her momma, Denise wrote to me that Sweet Pea likes to watch the ducks in the marsh. On the day Denise took this photo, the ducks were missing. So Sweet Pea sat down and looked at Denise instead. Doesn't Sweet Pea look like she's asking, "Where are the ducks?" ]
