Gently Remind Ourselves

“When we recognize that we have a habit of replaying old events and reacting to new events as if they were the old ones, we can begin to notice when that habit energy comes up. We can then gently remind ourselves that we have another choice. We can look at the moment as it is, a fresh moment, and leave the past for a time when we can look at it compassionately.”  ~Thích Nhất Hạnh

One thought on “Gently Remind Ourselves

  1. It can be scary, to change a typical reaction or habit. But if you can gently change your mindset,and it give it try, you may be very pleasantly surprised. A lot of times I will tell myself to just take baby steps and try something for JUST ONE DAY.
