My take

Over the last year I’ve started to share my thoughts on something before digesting what others think. It’s really fun! In the past I would hear a bit of news and instantly try to understand it through the lens of someone else. Taking a moment to write out my own thoughts first, then seeing what others have to say, is incredibly fun. Sometimes my initial gut reaction is right, many times its wrong, but I learn more by pausing to gather my own thoughts first.
