Striving to make mindful choices

Do you ever think about what impact a small action can have? When I do, I become overwhelmed thinking about the changes I would have to make. I feel I have to change everything immediately if I don’t like it.
What would happen if instead I would take a moment, breathe, and then simply observe? No rash decisions,no changes made on impulse.
What would I learn about myself? Maybe I would find the reason why I am doing certain things, again and again. Maybe I could accept that right now this behavior is a habit that is not good for me. A routine that I keep repeating because it is easy in the moment, that somehow fills a need in the present but the long term consequences are not beneficial to me.
I could be more mindful and then consciously choose an action instead of being ruled by desires.
