Reaction? Response? Which Are You?

ReAcT -VS- ReSPoNd

It can’t be flowers and sunshine every moment….yeah shocker! I know reality is that there are bad things in life all around us, and on occasion, it is important to weigh in.
In only recent years I have learned to sit back and watch, try to temper my responses towards situations; it is a good thing.
I want to be able to stand by my thoughts and I want those thoughts to be offered in love. In order to make this happen I must take time to consider situations, I have to respond to these things….not react. I’ve spent a lifetime “reacting” and all that has gotten me is drama! And quite frankly often times it causes me to have to apologize over and over for being so wrong! LOL That is what happens when you react and don’t respond. Thoughtful responses are better than quick knee-jerk reactions! xxxx

So what am I saying?  “I am thinking….” xx

Which one would you rather be?


In life we’ll have many opportunities to “prove” our self right! There will be times when we’ve been misquoted, lied to or about, or whatever the case may be, which can lead to these situations! There may come times when we end up in a terrible row with family or friends. At one time or another in our life, some of these things, if not all of these things, can happen and may lead to us wanting to be right!

All I want to say today is this; it will happen and when it does happen (to me) I ask myself one thing…… ” Do I want to be right or happy?” Truly I say this and I answer it. I usually pick happy and move on down the road. It’s just not worth my happiness to be “right”!

As a matter of fact…to be happy IS to be RIGHT! 🙂 *** And successful! *** So WE WIN!

Have a good day!
