“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 Frankl.
“In that space.”That ‘space,’ when recognized and embraced, is, in essence, sacred space. Sacredly your’s. No one can enter it ~ no one can create it for you ~ no one can tell you what it ‘should be’ like. (Even me 😊)
You will know it when you find it. (Yet you need be willing to look for it.) When you “sit inside” it you will.know. It is a powerful, uplifting, and sometimes scary place. Scary because it is the space inside that Knows what your truth is, what your ‘true north’ is, what actions are required to be truthfully you.
Then,…. you choose. That too can be scary. Or liberating. (Again, you choose how to wrestle with, interpret, come to peace with. Or not.)
You choose. Honestly.
That answer does become growth and freedom. For you. Authentically you.
