Restraint

You are following your inner guidance system. Not questioning—just allowing it to point you in the direction. Not overthinking, yet contemplating carefully. This is a point of balance. Showing restraint when your urge is toward impulsiveness can be beneficial. There are times when it is necessary to deliberate rather than take immediate “action”. Understand deliberation is “action”— just perhaps not in the sense you typically define the term in a given circumstance. It is difficult sometimes to make this distinction. Become aware of the difference between perceived failure to act and acting passively, with subtlety.
