If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you know I’m a believer that mindfulness brings not only peace but also power, as we strengthen our ability to find “the space between stimulus and response”(Viktor Frankl) and react intentionally to people and situations. The best part is that this power is always with you, as it’s derived from simply being able to find your breath, and use it to connect to the present moment. Although we can’t always control how our bodies and brains initially react to something, we can decide what we do as a result. That’s power, and you have it. It starts with a simple inhale and exhale.
Have an empowered week!
