Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less and stop watching ourselves live.
A major part of who I am is a thinker. In that, I think about things too much. Probably connected to my inability to sleep very well. Ok, directly connected to it. As a parent, I am constantly questioning my decisions on everything and worrying about how these things will affect the kids down the road.
I think this quotation is a good reminder that I need to think less and just enjoy this time with my family.
