I love this quote by Victor Frankl, a psychiatrist who survived the holocaust.
“ 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.”
By becoming more tuned-up to this space, more mindful, we can spot and use it more effectively.
Here is a great example (3 min video) from my friend Tosh Brittan who describes the first time she met her ex’s new partner. Her approach has led her to become a coach for people going through divorce and their lawyers.
