My 40 Days Of Intention Experiment: Day 24

My intention today is to stay fully present in each moment.

I have lots on my plate today.  My attitude and presence in the moment will carry me through.

Later this afternoon I’m meeting with a delightful group of people who will ask me varying questions.

In today’s reading we are encourage to “listen’.  Listening to their questions, fully, will allow me to answer without judgement or coming to conclusions that may not be true.

Listening is a skill.  Do you hear what people around you are really saying or are you preparing your response ahead of time?

I think this happens to many of us.  We get so caught up in sharing our ideas that our brains give an answer without us fully understanding the questions or concerns of others.

Listening is also about emotions.  Do you sense that what someone is saying is really NOT what they’re feeling or mean to say?

For instance, how many of us ask,

“How are you today?”

then really don’t respond to that question?

Take time today to really hear and understand those around you.  You may be surprised at some answers and questions you receive.
