FOREVER YOUNG/the power of listening

Had a great conversation with my husband this morning. And the one thing we talked about this morning, is the power of listening.

How often do you really listen to someone talk.. Do you tune them out, because you just don't want to hear what they have to say. And you're just tired of hearing them repeat themselves, over and over again.

But did you ever stop to think, that you're missing something. Maybe you just didn't hear it the first ten times, and that person really had something important to say, and you chose not to hear.

Listening is a learning process. It's not something that's inherited or in the genes. It has to be taught. And it should be taught from a very young age.

Because, I believe, listening to someone, just might prevent them from having  low self-esteem. And listening to someone, just might help that person achieve their goals, And listening to someone, just might prevent that person from doing something, that could have consequences.....and listening to someone, just might show that person, you really care about them.

Yes listening is a powerful tool.

So for me LISTENING, will always be FOREVER YOUNG
