AYD - March 7, 2013 - Think Before You Freak

"When it's after 2am, just go to sleep.  Because the decisions you make after 2am ... are the wrong decisions."
- Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother

Obviously this little comment could be referring to many things we encounter after 2am.
Just think of a nite out when you were younger and more carefree, add a bar, some spirits and any number of life decisions present themselves.  And we were most likely not in the best decision making state.

Now fast forward to a more mature time.  You could be awake because of work, or you are responding to an email you just found from earlier in the day ( nope, no connection to me at all ... wink wink) ... or any number of stressors that is nagging at you at 2am.  Yes, even painting the baby's room...

Point - pick your battles, and more importantly pick the right time to state your case.  Take the time to make sure you have your thoughts collected, and you do not speak from a more irrational and emotional reaction state versus a more level headed one.  Consider your position carefully, and express it effectively.

It really is pretty basic.

So on that note, let us comment on one more situation where this applies. 
You DO NOT need the last two pieces of chocolate cream triple layer pie at 2am.  Wrong decision.

Get my drift?

Great morning, great day.  Great you, good for others.
