Hello JimScarlet

This was the topic of my session this week
That I have a choice to respond, walk away, simply smile without a word

Reacting can get me into bother

May all be well with you this weekend

Jim scarlet,
It's good to read your words here.
Well worth considering. Thanks.

My T describes this as the space between the itch and the scratch. It can be a very helpful tool. Thank you for sharing.

Dear jimscarlet,

I love that idea of the "moment" between. I like to take a breath in that moment when I can remember. It helps me be more human instead of just responding immediately, unconsciously and/or without consideration. Not easy! I am still learning this. Thanks for the reminder.

with care,
