"Between stimulus and response there is a gap --where you
can CHOOSE to behave as your REAL SELF,or your conditioned
self."
Start with small things and work up.

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,
Harmony
