Listen

Isn’t communication an art?   To me it’s something that is constantly crafted.   Have you heard the statement,  ‘You can’t give someone something you don’t give yourself.”   To me listening, to one self, is just as valuable as being able to listen to others.   Do I heed my emotional/spiritual/physical/energetic needs?  Do I understand them or seek to understand them or do I just drown them out, ignore and avoid?   This is the canvas I’ve created as my starting point after much trial and error.

Listen

Listen without judgment

Listen without expectation

Listen with acceptance

Listen just to be there

Ask and engage versus stating and telling

Think deliberately before responding, perhaps pause and ponder
