To listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.
– Mark Nepo
I love what I do. Perhaps it’s because every day offers the opportunity to learn something new. If I approach a situation thinking I know the answer, this can prevent me from truly seeing, listening, and understanding.
In truth, the more I learn, the more I realize how much there is that I really don’t know.
There’s something incredibly freeing in that.
It’s often in the hardest moments that we discover life’s true beauty: courage, compassion, sacrifice, and love. I want to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what am witnessing, and hearing.
