August 2016 – Daily Mantras – 20

Here’s today’s mantra:

And finally, take a moment. I want to be able to rest. I want to be able to remember to respond and not react.

Here’s the thing. I have this friend Kerry whom I love. I notice that when I am around her, she is always easygoing. She isn’t super picky. It’s not that she doesn’t care, it’s just that she is open, kind and just easy to be with. She makes life feel effortless when I am with her and I love that feeling. I want to also create that feeling for those around me. But, alas, I am usually just the opposite. I am super picky. Super stressed. Often worried. I don’t go with the flow. I am the flow.

So I want to take a moment and ask myself “what would i do if i were easier?” How would I respond differently? What would I choose? I want to take a moment to be more the kind of person I want to be. Not be on automatic pilot but really be present and act from a place of choice.

To do that well, I need to always take a moment.

    Great post. I can relate to this. I am not a super easy person to be around and I would like to try to be “easier.” I’d be interested in knowing if you have any tips to share.
