I am feeling quiet right now.

Really quiet.

It is amazing the things you learn about people and situations when you just sit back and listen.

Listening is hard to do. Real listening, when you actually hear…

But I am learning (again) that sometimes the mouth is better left shut and some things are better left unsaid.

This silence has also allowed me to appreciate the value of the loved ones in my life that I can sit with in silence and feel like I am being heard louder than if I had raised my voice and screamed my every thought and feeling at the top of my lungs.

    Well said Kelly. I’ve been stretching my ears for the purpose of listening better. I’ll let you know how it works. 😉

    My brother always says, “It’s the quiet ones you’ve got to worry about.” :o) He was very paranoid.
