Word of the Week: Contemplate

4 Comments

Taking the time to contemplate. Look before you leap. Haste makes waste… 
                                  

When you are an impulsive person (like I am) contemplation doesn’t always come easy! 😉  
But contemplation can take different forms.
 

I like the second definition below: to meditate on or ponder.

 It’s all good. And so worth the time too.

Do you find it easy to contemplate life’s big decisions before you make them?

***

con·tem·plate
 
1. To look at attentively and thoughtfully.
 
 
2. To consider carefully and at length; meditate on or ponder: contemplated the problem from all sides; contemplated the mystery of God.
 
 
3. To have in mind as an intention or possibility: contemplate marriage; forced by the accident to contemplate retirement.

HAVE A WONDERFUL and MEANINGFUL WEEK! 🙂
