One of the biggest problems that I encounter, is my inability to simply close my mouth. I have the unique talent of talking my head while others are sharing, compiling my own thoughts. I want to share my wisdom, but what I have grown to understand, is wisdom is gained by truly listening. It is amazing the messages I receive from unsuspecting sources when I fully engage my senses.
Most of the time, my opinion is not wanted. People simply want to be heard. An open ear and kind heart are the only two things that I need to remember when I am dealing with others, especially those who are closet to me. My mantra today is to close my mouth and open my ears. A tall order indeed. Challenge accepted!!!
