“Between stimulus and response, there is a gap. In that space is the power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”- Victor Frankl
It is such an important concept. The wise use of this gap. Yet, it is a habit that we can spend a lifetime trying to adopt consistently.
I struggle every day. Especially, with the people that I love and am the most comfortable with. With them, I have the comfort and leeway to not worry so much about the ramifications of every word or pause.
Many times, I have reacted to something that they say or do before I even realized I had a choice. So, back to the drawing board. And so it goes… I work on mindfulness… I fail… I work on mindfulness… I fail.
The punchline is that failure is the opportunity. That is where the growth comes. Doubling down… trying again… over and over. What an opportunity! What a gift! Join me back at the drawing board.
