Are you reacting or responding?

There’s a magic moment. But, only a few choose to take it.

Unless you acknowledge it exists, you’ll never know it’s been there and gone.

Unless you take it, you’ll never know its power.

Sometimes, you’ll see it in a colleague as they hold for a breath or dive in.

When they hold, what comes next is thoughtful. Curious.

When they dive, the energy turns to defense, attack, and ends in regret.

It only takes a breath.

In that breath is suspension – like a trapeze artist between bars.

And, a single choice.

React?

Or…

Respond?

There’s always time, you know.

For one breath.
