Step Back

I was talking with a friend of mine today who has just recently returned from a trip out west. He told me that he had shared with his wife that he wasn't making any major decisions today since he was so tired. While we laughed about his statement, there is a lot of wisdom in those few choice words. 

Too often we make poor decisions or act rashly when we are physically, emotionally, or spiritually exhausted. It causes us to do things that we might not do if we were thinking clearly and operating with more strength. Our moments of vulnerability can be dangerous places when we don't recognize how susceptible we are to poor decision making. It's a sign of maturity and great self-awareness to be able to accurately evaluate ourselves and step back to be refueled before moving forward again.
