Mindful Choice

“We human beings affect one another deeply. We mirror what we receive more often than not. If we are met with judgment we will most likely return judgment. If we are met with anger we most likely will mirror anger. If we are met with fear we return fear. Transformation occurs when we meet everything with love. It’s not easy but with mindfulness and commitment and breath, it becomes easier. Today I commit to breathe and mirror life with love.”  ~ Sonia Choquette

Choosing to answer negativity with love requires some planning. Mindful choice occurs now before we have been slighted before we have received an angry tirade, and before we feel the sting of judgment. Choosing love over hate is difficult. Ego wants to one up or at least give as good as we got. If you want to stop spreading anger and judgment, make a choice now. Choosing love in the heat of the moment takes practice. Decide how you would like to respond and practice. Write down alternative responses that come from love…silence, a heartfelt apology, or asking questions and seeking to understand the other person. Then practice, practice, practice.
