St. Angela Reflection
October 2014 St. Angela Reflection
“At all times, however, act on good advice and after serious thought.”
Making hasty decisions or acting on impulse usually backfires on us. Angela’s advice is to take the time we need to make good decisions. Seek advice from others; put heads together to gather information. If we can’t give a response immediately, admit it and tell the other you will get back to them after you have had some time to think about the issue. If, on occasion, you must give an immediate response, pause briefly, take a breath, and speak your best. Tell the other that you would like to give the concern more thought and get back to them. If this is not possible, trust your instincts, say a quick prayer and do the best you can.
