"Think before you think,"

grandma used to say.  Growing up, I really didn't understand what she meant by this.  It was so complex back then.

Another birthday, another year, and the meaning of this saying begins to make sense. Thoughts, those private moments in which we reflect, make sense of things, generate ideas, imagine how things should be, are important.

Grandma's "think before you think," was her way of saying you have the power to control not only your behavior, but the thoughts that generate it.
