Reacting versus Response…the difference is a greatness to be discovered!

If your reacting to something someone has said…there is something in it for you!

That is, there is something hidden within the content of the conversation…a mystery that is waiting to be discovered which is going to give you more freedom, if you are willing to discover it – unwrap it – look past the initial and obvious and really dig down into the core issue.

Our reactions are a clear signal that we are hitting up against a goad. It could be seen as a snag or a really neat way of addressing something that will help us overcome…push on and upward into previously unchartered waters.

Although I do not like being reactionary and absolutely do not enjoy others reacting to me…in a negative way…

I am starting to get this message… I really do have the ability to respond and not react.

Since I desire to take responsibility – I have the ability to respond.  I am choosing more often, in situations where a reaction is easily flared – to quickly press the “pause” button and choose instead, to take responsibility. 

Reacting versus Response…the difference is a greatness to be discovered!
