In the heat of the moment, sometimes we forget that the choice to act or react is ours. And so are the consequences of those choices.
I was reminded today by my mentor at T.E.D.* The Empowerment Dynamic that when I feel triggered, simply ask myself: “Do I want to add to the drama, and ‘play,’ or to relax and ‘pass’?”
Rest and digest is an easy way to remember to stay calm.
What will you choose today? Pass or play? Act or react?
What hooks you and what heals you?
Your body knows. Listen closely. Stay safe no matter what is happening around you.
The choice is yours.
