Just for today…remind yourself that it is not about what others are saying or doing…it is what their actions or words stir within you. They simply touch wounds that already exist within you. Your reaction should be viewed as an awareness that something requires your attention and healing. Be kind and gentle with yourself…and others.
Just for today…choose a different response to those around you. Your positivity, your warmth and your compassion is vastly more important–and needed–more than your frustration, resentments and petty judgments. By changing your response to annoyances, you create an opportunity for others to respond differently as well. It’s amazing how responding versus reacting actually shifts dynamics and allows you to see the good in others.
