mindful monday



while reading my mindfulness-based stress reduction workbook for class i came across a viktor frankl quote also mentioned by tara brach at saturday's daylong. it's a powerful reminder that felt perfect for today's post:

"between stimulus and response there is a space. in that space is our power to choose our response. in our response lies our growth and our freedom." 
 
choose wisely. bisous. x

Thank you for sharing! That really is a powerful one and although I have been practicing Mindfulness for more than 2 years now, I didn't know the quote.

I love the quote. I've always tried to practice "action" as opposed to reaction and I believe the space mentioned is the difference between the two. Thank you for sharing!

I've always liked this quote. I must write it down as a reminder for 2013.
