One Little Word® – thoughts in November

listen-graphic

This was a new adventure for me, having a word. I have to admit that it has not been a great success. But I have been listening to Ali every month and after listening to the November video I was inspired to write something down.

I was in tune with what she had to say this month. Her thoughts were along these lines – by choosing your word you expected to learn this instead you leaned this.

By choosing listen I thought I would learn how to listen more to people around me, how to pay more attention and be present. I expected a magic wand.

Instead I learned that I can listen to my heart. And I learned that I am stronger than I thought I was. I learned that this word will stay with me, even if I pick another for next year, I will keep listen close because I like the challenge it brings and I don’t yet feel I have done it justice.
