I wasn’t sure that my MBSR class was really going to work.
I mean, I have basically stopped regularly meditating. I just don’t have the time, mostly because I prioritize exercise over largely everything else.
But then, when a couple of really hurtful things have been said to me this week…
I haven’t reacted the way I usually do.
It’s not that I don’t feel it, because I do. Both times it’s happened, my internal voice has gone, Ouch.
But the difference is that I am aware that it’s happening. And I have chosen not to respond.
I am starting to see what my classmates were talking about – the idea that my reaction can be a choice.
This is such good news.
