Thoughtful Thursday

Today my thoughts are few. After having a slight breakdown earlier about not getting the new computer to work and I was short with my children and husband I now sit here and wish I had been a little bit more nice. 

"Anger is a self centered reaction to inconvenience and disappointment" 

This quote has been on my fridge for as long as I can remember. And today I didn't follow it. Each of us has a choice on how we react in any given situation. There is a space in time, if we allow it, between the event and reaction. Sometimes it is hard to acknowledge that space and allow time for reaction.  Just think about that for a min. If we allow time, if even for a brief second, before we react to events what would that do to your family dynamics? What would that do while driving, at the grocery store? What about our husbands and children? We are the only ones who can control that reaction. We have the power to control how we react but the problem is that we are human. We make mistakes and we are always on a defense mode. I know that is sounds crazy, but my goal the rest of this week is to allow that time for reaction. I get to choose my reaction! I get to choose how I feel. No one! No one can dictate how I get to react. 

What do you think? Tell me your thoughts.
