Even though it seems like your mind runs the show, in fact, you have great capacity to choose your thoughts, perceptions, and attitude in any situation. If we are going to evolve as a human race, we must start by using the more evolved parts of ourselves. When we’re feeling overwhelmed, it takes skill and courage to pause, assess the situation with awareness, then re-center and take wise action with an attitude that aligns with our best self.
In mindful presence,
Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.
