If we were meant to #talk more than #listen, we would have two mouths and one ear.

– Mark Twain

Find time today, and every day for that matter, to listen. That’s not listen with an answer to give. That’s listen with a message to hear. The person that you truly listen to will find it immensely valuing; you might just discover something that you didn’t know either!

Just listen.

“‘A watched pot never boils’ so be careful to what you are #attending. If you #fix your eyes on what you don’t want (fear, anger, jealousy…) it ‘won’t boil’ either and that means it can’t go away.”

“Fix your attention on what you want; not on what you don’t.” S. Long

“Whatever you give your #attention to remains. Attend to faith, hope and love; not fear, anger and obsession.” S. Long
