It’s being open to and offering a wider perspective or higher altitude view of a situation. It’s understanding that the only thing we have control of is our option to choose how we ‘react’ to anything. So often we ‘go into reaction’ to something that is said, to how someone treats us or others, and we don’t stop to take a breath and reset.
It can take a little re-training of the mind. So next time you feel the impulse to voice your negative opinion, ask yourself how you could reframe your thought/words more positively. You can instantly change the tone of the conversation and not only uplift yourself, but others as well.
