I'm horrible about jumping in and finishing someone else's sentence if I think I know where they're going and not getting there fast enough. I'm working on my listening today.

Living consciously means making worthwhile choices.

A body is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited.

Enjoy the ride. Accept that there will be bumps. Keep moving on.

Sadly I am kind of both in terms of not wanting to say much sometimes, though if comfortable with the person, I will talk a bit and share. But, I always listen to what they have to what anyone has to say.

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!

“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.” -Ernest Hemingway

“Lots of people act well, but few people talk well. This shows that talking is the more difficult of the two.” -Oscar Wilde

Have a great Tuesday!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie
