How many times have you said something to someone in the heat of a moment, only to reconsider it later and wish you had refrained?
In the moment, emotion took over and you instinctively reacted, pushing back against those things you felt were opposing you. In fact, react is defined as: to oppose a force or influence. It is quite natural to oppose a force or influence when we are in an emotional state.
So, how is responding different? Respond is defined as: regarding or considering in a specific way. When we respond, we shift away from that instinctive state based on emotion and into a state of consideration, where we can begin to become more aware of our choices in the moment versus reconsider our actions after the fact.
When we respond, we observe the actions in the experience at hand and choose our reply.
Today, allow yourself time to be the observer and respond versus react. Do you feel any shifts in the flow of your day?
We're so quick to succumb to our desire to be on the frontline as a star player, we fail to realize we can't see the moves of other players when we're in the game. I recently learned the true value of observation. Observation not only allows you to get to know the players and thier position, it provides a greater opportunity to learn thier moves and make you better skilled. #observe#learn#know#confidants#comrades#constituents

I'm just a ball of emotion today. I'm just trying to enjoy this view and listen to music. I'm really thankful. Thankful because of and despite of.
People just want to be understood, seen and loved. The action of that is being taken care of and chosen every now and then. Give extra love to those that seem weak or just played to seem so. Yeah, sometimes the action is doing all the above for yourself.
When you choose (act), try take a moment to look at what you didn't. See, love and give that a bit of care too.
I get new days, I get wonderful experiences, I get to learn and grow and every now and then I get pure love from others. It's overwhelming when it all intersects.
You are always being guided, even when it doesn’t feel like it.
As we journey through life, it’s helpful to keep in mind that no matter what there will always be changes. That’s the only constant thing in this world, isn’t it? All we can do is to accept it, adjust and move on even if sometimes it breaks us. Don’t dwell your energy to those things that doesn’t serve you. Know that, the world is our classroom, and our experiences and other people are our assignments. Every experience you perceive on the movie screen that is your life gives rise to one of two choices: to learn through the perception of love or to learn through the perception of fear." 🙏
