Good Tuesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: there is nothing passive about listening. Society has developed more and more ways to communicate with one another, but none of the technologies are expanding our ability to listen more effectively. It’s as if we’ve gone mad at times with everyone talking and no one listening. People report feeling lonelier now than ever before. The greatest expression of love is the art of listening, and it’s hard work. Giving your total attention without jumping in to say something, defend something or prove something tells the person who is talking that you really care about what they’re saying. It also tells them that you value them and respect their feelings. Kids who are listened to report feeling more loved. Spouses that are listened to feel valued. Employees who are listened to produce better results. Take time and listen with your whole heart.
