My new year intention

I pause

between stimulus and response

I breathe in and breathe out

I inhale pause and clear my mind

I exhale all the unnecessary stuff

all my judgments and my shadow and my defenses

then only reply if necessary

only reply If I could reply

without judgment, without defending, without making my point

If not, I stay silent until I can exhale all the unnecessary stuff
