Good morning!  

Kyrsti wrote this quote on an index card after reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and she reads it every day. She writes, ” It has had a big impact on my life. I knew that if I could cultivate the habit of being patient within this ‘space’ after an event or words spoken to me, I would be able to get to a response that would promote less stress and more happiness.”
This concept is one that we need to live on a daily basis. While we can’t control everything going on around us (nor is it worth our energy to try!) we can control how we react in that “space.” And, how we react will directly impact our day, our week, our month–our life.
When we choose anger, gossip, negativity, or getting defensive – we build walls in our lives that keep out the “bad”–but those same walls also keep out the good and the wonder of life.
Your turn: Today, notice the “space” where you have the choice to respond. Think about how your choice will influence your life. Respond in a way that promotes understanding and caring and personal peace. You’ll feel much better about the situation at hand –and your life will reflect it.
Your affirmation:  I choose to respond to external events in a caring, understanding and peaceful way.
