s p a c e . . . "Between stimulus and response is a SPACE. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and our happiness." When we slow down, we make time for those pauses, between thoughts and reactions which allows us an opportunity to THINK before we RESPOND.
When we are in a constant state of reactivity, we are only seeing things from our own obscured PERCEPTION in the heat of that particular moment.
When we are faced with a challange it can seem as though everything is an ATTACK on us, propelling us further into that fight or flight state causing us to avoid/ run or get defensive/fight back, instead of seeing these "challanges or obstacles" as simply a lesson to be learned.
Challanges are not good or bad, they just ARE. When we stop labeling "problems" we start to see them as opportunities for GROWTH!
Next time you find yourself REACTING, just PAUSE, and BREATH. Create SPACE.
Then if you still wanna punch that guy in the face 👊 by all means go ahead, you have my blessing 😉
