I do both, but sometimes afraid to speak up for fear of rejection, that's why it's been hard to put blogs up...but I'm doing better. If I tell myself blogging is sort of like updating on facebook or status updates on SP, I can do it easier.

Who have you encouraged today?

I tend to do both. If I am comfortable with someone, I will talk with them and share a bit. Though if uncomfortable, I tend to clam up some. However, I always listen to anyone that feels the need to talk.

Happy Tuesday to you!

Are you:

1) The type of person that doesn't say much or share your feelings?

or

2) Talk & share all the time, but rarely listen?


Your challenge today is to EITHER LISTEN MORE or SPEAK UP. Whichever type of person you are, try the OPPOSITE for today.

This may mean talking less and listening to what others are really saying. Asking them how they feel. Asking for their opinions.

For those that are quiet and rarely share how they feel, try telling those around you what is in your mind/heart. Share your feelings. Throw in your two cents.

WE CAN DO THIS!

Have a great Tuesday!
