    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do you challenge your own thinking?

    Do you come up with ways why what you're about to say or do, might be the wrong thing to say or do?

    Do you reason with yourself, providing examples, evidence, etc., to yourself, that counter your own perspective?

    I just did that.

    I was finna post a thread ... then thunk ... wait ... this aint rite or true ... and had to say nevermind to my own self.

    I think i do this often, unaware that i'm doing it, as it's so much a part of my decision making process.

    I just happened to catch myself doing it this time ... :balance:

    How about you ... do you challenge your own thinking?

    Thanks in advance for sharing.

    :heart:

    when i show a photograph it looks wonderful.
    what people don't know is how many i throw away before i get that one that is right.
    i reject 98% of what i do.

    I will finish writing a reply and before posting, I'll delete. I find myself doing this more frequently now.
    Sometimes its because I don't feel its lends anymore to the topic.

    I ALWAYS look at things from a neutral and unbiased point of view.

    I also like to read, use AND EVALUATE various sources/references to determine if they're valid.

    I also don't take it personal if I am wrong.. it's like whatever, "the more ya know!" lol
