“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.”
― Viktor Frankl
In a society that values fast, instant and quantity it seems that stillness would have no place. Yet, I believe it is what we most desperately need. It was what I needed. Stillness, in a sense, helped me come back into my life. And mindfulness practice is what finally taught me not only how to be in stillness but also how to be with stillness.
It takes a certain bravery to be with things exactly as they are— without the need to fix or change. Stillness is not for the faint of heart. For, in stillness one might find that things are far from desirable, or on the other hand, a beauty that is so great it overwhelms. In short… stillness is scary sh*t. But you know what, so is life. And, if you’ve found your way here, I’m fairly certain you’re not one to give into fear, or at the very least, no longer want to be someone who is. And for that, I’m both incredibly grateful and humbled.
I believe in mindfulness. I believe in these practices, and I promise that if I can learn to be with stillness, you can learn to be with stillness. And, if you can learn to be with stillness, you can learn to be with anything. In learning to be present, to be still, you will be able to respond to anything this world decides to gift your way.
