I’ll Have to Sleep on the Post I just Wrote

Maybe it was the result of watching too much news coverage from the Comey hearing today.

Maybe it was the culmination of months of frustration with what is happening in our country these days.

Maybe it’s being a sore loser from the Presidential election.

Whatever caused it, I just wrote a post that was highly critical of President Trump.

As I was about to hit the Publish button and make it go live, I thought of a couple famous sayings:

When angry count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred. – Thomas Jefferson

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow. – Chinese proverb

So I decided to take the advice of Jefferson and the Chinese, and hold off on that post. I don’t know if I’ll ever publish it, but it was useful putting my thoughts down  in writing.

It’s also nice knowing that I actually have a post ready to go at a moment’s notice…
