Reflect, Rewind, Renew

?????????????This weekend is our Wishful Thinking Works Women’s retreat at one of my favorite places – a Benedictine Monastery in west central Florida.  The Retreat isn’t religious – our focus is on reflection, rewinding and renewing our lives – but the quiet atmosphere and peaceful surroundings of the Monastery provide an oasis for contemplation.

Wish you were joining us, but more importantly I hope you find a way in your own life to take the time to retreat.  I truly believe retreating is the fist step to finding more meaning in your life.

Whether you choose to meditate daily, color quietly in a corner of your home, travel halfway around the world or up the road to explore your options and to listen to your hearts desires,  taking time for reflection is a wonderful way to get in touch with what really matters to you and to find new ways to take steps in the direction your dreams.

Find some time this weekend to sit and ponder what possibilities lie ahead for you. I guarantee it will be time well spent.

Warm regards,

Patrice

“Between stimulus and response there is a space.

In that space is our power to choose our response.

In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”  Viktor E. Frankl

Earlier this week, I chatted online with a friend to prevent myself from writing a petty and knee-jerk response to someone else. Chatting with my friend, and following the tips below, helped me find the space I needed so I wouldn’t do or say something I would regret.

Later in the week the topic of controlling our responses came up with two other friends on two different topics. It’s amazing how easy it is for all of us to take the bait, verbally one-up someone, or feel the need to have the last word.

But with practice and lots of fun, flow, and fulfillment in our lives the need to negatively respond to life’s surprises and slights and the gentle ribbing or intended jabs of others grows less and less and our ability to find positive ways to handle touchy, hurtful, or stressful situations…

Another inspiring Viktor E. Frankl quote;

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” 

I love it when I figure that out early in the game!
