  1. What great advice, Karen. Understanding the true value of listening can make a positive difference between our personal and professional relationships. You hit the nail on the head when you referenced talking to others and needing to listen to our own words. I hadn’t really thought of the idea of listening to myself as helping with my own intention but you are right, it happens whether we intended for it to or not if we are in tuned and focused on our words. Thank you for the reminder on patiently listening to others to allow the upmost respect while they are talking especially when they are depending on you to lean on during a difficult time.

  2. Certainly the value of listening cannot be emphasized enough. It’s true too that many times just talking about an issue out-loud to maybe a trusted friend we solve our own problem. Just imagine if we can listen to others and understand, how solutions could be arrived at. Great tips for listening and staying centered on the individual, showing respect.
