They say we should “Think” before we “Act”

Let me start off by saying, there are a lot of chicken shits in our World!

These are the people who have to carefully plan out every move they make. They think it out. Write it down. Rethink it. Edit their written plan. And continue until months or years later, they implement whatever they were contemplating.They Say We Should

Me, on the other hand, I like to be impulsive. I get a hair-brained idea and just go for it!

And more times than any, it ends up getting me in over my head.

However, at least I tried!

They say we Should “Think” before we “Act”

Case and point:  Do you remember my post not too long ago Do You Ever Feel Like You’re All Over the Place?

There I spoke about how I like to bite off more than I can choose. I was starting yet another blog.

Well, guess what? I did start that blog and slowly have been posting to it. It’s a blog about my furkids and all the joys at our Castle. I blogged about my first baby several years back and had hella fun with it!

However, I also didn’t have a part-time virtual business, a lifestyle blog, and a second child.

Can you say “STOP IT!”?

Well, guess what?


So, several months ago, Bluehost asked me to be an Affiliate. You know, I promote their product or service and get compensated for it. Well, I couldn’t promote it without using the service. That’s just a “thing” of mine. Unless I use it or have used it, I don’t want to promote it. Who knows, the product could be a bunch of crap. Hell no, do I want to promote crap!

Anywho, I created yet another website.

You notice I said “website”? Because it doesn’t have a blog with it! I thought I would try an EBlog Newsletter. You know, instead of publishing blog posts on the website, I send them via email.

Yeah, another hair-brained idea.

But rightful so, as a “good faith” attempt for my friends, readers, and clients.

But now, the Website Sits

Just like my business website, which has a blog. Thankfully, I have blog posts there that continue to share all by themselves and I continue to get comments.

Hell, just two days ago, I put this blog on Private and deactivated my Twitter account! Only to visit both today and make Public and Reactivate.

What the cray-cray?

I feel like I’m living a life of creation and not following through!

So, do I regret not thinking this new blog and website through? Am I happy that I jumped right in and tackled the concept?

Of course, I’m going to say “Yes”. You wouldn’t want me to bitch about my spontaneous attempts at something new and then cry the blues!

I’m happy I did it!

Now, I just need to find a happy medium to manage my new, the current, the old, and the what-the-hell-were-you-thinking stuff!

But I still have to wonder….Why? Why do I continue to do these things? Why don’t I accept what society says we should do “Think before we Act”? Is this my way of bumping the system? Or do I lack control over certain things? If there is no fear of whatever I’m intending to do, I just do it?

What about you?

Are you an impulsive person or do you carefully plan out your moves?

  1. I use to plan out everything to a tee but after the hubs died I realize life is about living and to hell with it I want to just live and do things on the spur of the moment. Just go with the flow and not plan anything. We aren’t planning anything for spring break but I am thinking to just pack up a bag and hit the road pick a place on the map and drive. I plan out some things but it’s fun to just live for a change.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, Kita. Life is about living in the moment. If you can be a bit spontaneous, is a huge rush! Mind you, there are summer things I have to plan out but those impulsive things are thrilling! I hope you and the kids do something fun for break. Enjoy gf!

    2. I’m so sorry for your loss Kita! I do not know this loss. My loss was of my 23year old son 5 years ago. It changed for me, too, the way I look at life. Life is short, not in the way of being sad about that, but of not wasting any of this precious time. I am committed to following my bliss, doing what feels good, and living my dream. I know my son smiles at me as he holds my hand and supports me in this 🙂
      I wish you all the best in your life. ❤

  2. That’s a lot to handle all at once, Bren. 🙂 Then again, it’s great to try different things and see what sticks. They’re all excellent learning experiences. Unlike me, you’re fearless, which is a good thing. I tend to plan and mull things over before proceeding. I can’t even fathom the idea of having more than one website! Where do you find the time?

    1. Hey Debbie. I think my biggest issue is, I haven’t found a happy medium to be able and combine the niches. It is a lot and I’m working on finding a publishing routine. Crazy, right?

      I’m by far not always fearless, but when it comes to blogging, I love a challenge!

      Time? What’s time? Lol

  3. I’m a bit of both. I do like to plan and be organised but sometimes I go and do something impromptu. Sometimes it works, sometimes not but it makes life interesting. Good luck I’m sure you will do well juggling all those balls in the air.

    1. Hey Sue! I’m like that. If we are traveling, I like to plan things out. But for around the home type things (blogging), meh, I’ll wing it. 🙂 I like that you say “Sometimes it works, sometimes not”. That’s true, but at least we gave it a fair shot, right? Anywho, appreciate the luck you are sending my way. I’m brainstorming how to consolidate again! lol Please tell me it gets better when I get over the 50 hump? 😉

      Have a fab day!

  4. I tend to be a planner, but seldom have a problem pulling the trigger to make things happen (I’m NOT prone to “analysis paralysis!”). Whatever works, I say–and your approach certainly seems to be working for you!

    1. Hey Roxanne! Nothing wrong with being a planner, but why not pull that trigger? Sometimes ya gotta just Go For It, right? Trust me when I say, I don’t always act impulsive. It depends on the situation. It’s certain things. Like buying a vehicle…my hubs has to put the leash on me because I see “Pretty”, “Fast”, “Coolness” and want it! Same thing with blog themes! There are so many beautiful ones out there, that I would love to tweak further, that I keep buying them! That’s more compulsive than impulsive but still, I leap first. Maybe it’s an aging thing? LOL Great to see ya here!

  5. Hi Bren,I thought I was more of a non planner but after reading this I think I am more of a planner. I envy you for taking chances and giving it your all each time too. Life is too short to sit and wonder if I should have or not?

    1. Hey Lisa! I didn’t think you were much of a planner. Guess I was wrong. You know how I love a challenge. Sometimes that challenge ends me in over my head. But you’re right, life is too short to wonder. I think I have “selective” impulsion. LOL Is that even a “thing”? Great to see ya here!

Waddya Think?
