What Are We Choosing?

You can choose to be a person who has resulted simply from what has happened, or from what you’ve chosen to be and do about what has happened.  – Neale Donald Walsch

events + choice

How we react to life events is a decision we make! Jack Canfield shares the following formula:

E + R = O

Event plus our reaction to that event results in an outcome. The event is what it is; how we choose to be (sad, happy, indifferent etc.) and to do anything (shout, smile, lash out, learn…) is a choice we make every time.


Our peace is entirely up to us because we control our reaction to all external stimuli. How do we choose to react? Rather how do we choose to be?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM choosing the higher reaction!
