Have you ever reacted and regretted it immediately?

Feb 29, 2024
Your thoughts are the roots of your destiny. Your next action results from your next thought.  Cultivating a positive, constructive mindset is significantly important because our thoughts influence our perceptions, attitudes, and ultimately our actions.
The mental training of a meditation practice can rewire the inner circuitry of the brain in the area that controls focus, memory, learning patterns, and perception of consciousness. This is known as neural plasticity, the fact that our brains are fully adaptable and dynamic throughout our lives.
How often have you reacted and regretted it immediately? We made someone feel bad, yelled, pressed send, and wounded with words. 
Viktor Frankl, a neurologist, psychologist, and Holocaust survivor said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” There is a space between external stimuli and our reactions. This pause offers an opportunity for conscious choice, enabling us to respond thoughtfully rather than react impulsively.
If you breathe, or close your eyes and count to ten after the stimulus and before the response, how might your day year, or life change? How might our friends, family, and colleagues see us? How might that moment make all the difference? That space is a little thing we can do every day.
Responding in this way can transform our relationships - fostering understanding, respect, and harmony. By exercising restraint and choosing our words and actions intentionally, we can minimize conflict and nurture deeper connections with those around us. This empowers us to choose our destinies with greater wisdom, compassion, and authenticity. When we nurture the quality of our thoughts and responses we enrich our own lives as well as the lives of others.
