The Pause of fascination

Between every stimulus and response there is a gap...
What the means is that when something happens we can use that tiny little gap to make a decision. We can be a slave to our instant reaction... Which often doesn't work in our favour. Or we can take control, feel our feet on the floor, our butt in the seat and then pay attention to what's going on on the inside.
Pay attention to that feeling, that thought, that image or movie on the inside that was just triggered by that interaction.
And then go: Wow, that's interesting! Or: That is fascinating...! 
Find a moment of pause, get curious, be amazed by your own reactions and then you'll react in afar more resourceful way. A way that is probably more worthy of who you are today.
