When we are little, we instantly react to things.
Something happens, and we cry, we laugh… our automatic reaction mechanism kicks in.
Then we grow up.
And we are never taught that we don’t HAVE to instantly react to things in our environment.
Instead, we stay stuck in our immature ways of dealing with the world.
As adults we say things like this:
“I don’t like that” and “It shouldn’t be that way” or “I am offended.”
These are reactions.
Today, I would like to invite you to practice responding to your world.
Take a moment, take a breath, and think about how you want to respond to a situation.
This approach gives you tremendous power.
And when you have power, you have options.
Today, choose the response you want to have, and leave your instant reactions behind.
