Did you know that the same letters in the word listen are the same letters in the word silent. What does that say to you? Are you someone who rushes to be heard and always likes to get the last word in? Or do you like to actively listen when someone speaks. What does active listening mean to you? 

Anonymous said “ Conversation in the United States is a contest in which the first person to draw breath is declared the Listener”  Most if us will read this and smile and know it is true, that we really don’t listen we are just waiting our turn to make a point , change the subject or prove that we are right. What a gift it can be when someone listens without their own agenda  getting in the way or interrupting and letting the air be filed with silence. Take a moment today to listen and you too will hear the silence, it can be music to your ears.
