Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes all deal with the subject of reacting, something I’ve and I’m sure many others have done countless times in life without thinking or putting any thought whatsoever to our actions, only to regret it later. So I sought out some great quotes that helped in a motivational way for that…

“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” (Charles R. Swindoll)

“Don’t react to toxic people. Not giving them a reaction when they desperately seek it, is far more powerful.” (Unknown)

“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.” (Melody Beattie)

“When you react to a person’s negative comments or actions in an angry way, then you are giving that person power over you. If a person can easily get a rise from you, then you are no longer in control. If you take a moment and respond in a calm, healthy, honest and real way, then you are in control and not allowing anyone to take your power away or invoke a reaction from you.” (Maria Consiglio)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
