On Taking a Moment

IMG_0616.JPG

Being mindful to me meant taking a moment to reflect before acting. That moment can be very short if I have knowledge and experience relevant to that particular situation where wisdom can appear as instinct. When we talk about a moment, it is a length of time, but it feels more like a space trapped in time. Then I came across this quote:

“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.” ~Viktor Frankl (psychologist)
