#61 Taking the High Road

“We rarely get lost taking the high road” a friend said to me recently. This quote stood out from others about taking the high road because it referred to the possibility of getting lost. I never really thought about it before, but we do get lost when we react to a situation vs responding to it. We wander away from the person we want to be or become.

This week’s quote is about the control we give to others when we are angry with them.

HALT is an acronym that stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. In this week’s podcast I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about referring to this acronym before you make any decisions.
