How much better would life be if we actively recognised the "space" of time that exists before we react to something?
When faced with situations that pull for some particular reaction, we can choose to respond instead.
With such awareness, we can find freedom from the dictates of both external and internal pressures. And with that, we can find inner fulfilment and contentment.
Look for the "space" in your own life, whether you find it through meditation, therapy or prayer.
Everyone responds differently to situations so consider the type of person you'd like to be. If you get easily frustrated and are trying to be more patient, try catching yourself every time you feel an impulsive reaction coming along. Observe how you react and imagine a better response to that situation.
Whatever your situation calls for, you will find creating ‘space’ is an incredibly powerful part of becoming the person you aspire to be.
