What was I thinking?

How many times do you hear people say, “What was I thinking?”. This is usually in reference to a mistake they’ve made.

But most people stop there. It never occurs to them that asking the question means there is an answer. Instead they use the question as an explanation for their behavior.

Don’t just ask, “What was I thinking?”

Examine your thinking. What processes did you use, if any, to make your bad decision.

If you don’t, you’re going to continue to make the same mistakes in the future.

Not all mistakes require such  in-depth examination.

For example, I picked out some wallpaper for an apartment once that was an ivy kind of pattern. At the time I liked it.  A year or so later, I hated it. That was just a change in my preferences but it wasn’t important enough to give it deep thought. It was just wallpaper after all and like most women, I like changing things up a lot.

But I know a number of people who continue to make bad decisions about important life issues. Like getting into one bad relationship after another. This time”What was I thinking?” really needs to be answered.

What were they thinking when they started dating the same type of person they always date. It’s like the definition of insanity, they keep making the same decisions and then wonder why the relationship goes sour.

Or when I can’t keep my hands out of the cookie jar. “What was thinking”? In my case, it’s usually that I wasn’t thinking in the first place. I just habitually reach into the cookie jar. I wasn’t doing enough thinking.

Don’t just ask the question. Find the answer.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
