CHoose wisely.

Take the time to pause.
Then act, instead of react.

Trust your feelings but consider their roots.
Are they from your past? Don’t let them taint your Present.

If they are related to The Now,
Be vulnerable and speak your truth.
But with a voice that is clear, passionate, and loving – of yourself and others involved.

How we respond to a situation is our choice.

[In the spirit of providing daily commentary, I’m adding digraphs, those two letters that unite to consistently form a single sound, to my A to Z posts.]

  1. Wise words! ❤

  2. Choice and response – pause pause pause … thanks Beth 🙂

  3. I need to read this every morning. And every evening. It gets a bookmark. Thank you.

  4. These are all things we should remember to do, but when it comes to it, forget!

    My A-Z of Children’s Stories

  5. What a FABULOUS theme, Beth, and a great poem!

    I’m linking each of my posts this year to an actual A-Z blog because so many are not doing the A-Z, or are just adverts, or are deleted, or are (weirdly!) private, I think linking to the list will waste people’s time. Yours will be coming up soon!

  6. Ooh, I love that you’re including digraphs, you over-achiever, you! 😉
