resolved to rather think


Senior Member
Hello friends,

I have found out that the word "rather" can be used before introduce your thoughts and feelings, in order to express your opinion politely...
So, I´m wondering if the following sentence of my creation is grammatically correct.

"As her search for the lost item in the house came to nothing she resolved to rather think about what she had done the previous day."

What I intend to express by the structure is the fact that her thinking about what she had done before took preference over the search in the house. I do believe that you understand what I seek to express :)

Thank you for any light you may shed on it. :)
