First off, I am so thankful that you host these on Monday mornings. What a great way to frame the week.
Most meaningful takeaway for me, BY FAR, was the quote: With awareness there is choice. Without awareness, there is only habit.
I don’t know why, but I picture Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid saying that to Daniel-son.
So true. Without stepping back and thinking consciously about how I am going to go about this day, this week, the next hour, I would revert to what I habitually do, the way I normally approach things….good or bad.
Awareness forces me to think about things a different way. To approach each event in my day…a conversation, a to-do, a meeting, an interaction with my daughters who are luckily still sleeping downstairs but will eventually awake… a different way. The right way. Not just based on the emotions or feelings that I might have in a given moment.
Thanks for a great session.
