It's gonna be hot today... mid 90s.
But, at least I live in a place that I don't have to go far to do most things.
This morning we had a motivational, life-coach guy speak to us in the community room and I am so glad I went.
He spoke on The Power of Stories.
We all have stories. Our stories may all be different but they tell who we are, for the experiences we have had is what shapes our lives.
The speech was very inspirational and when he finished, each person in the audience turned to the person next to them and shared stories about themselves.
How much easier it will be to have conversation with others if we know their 'story'.
I guess that's why I like blogging. We share stories, trials and happy times, too. That makes us friends and members of a community.
Unfortunately, I find that a lot of people do not know how to have a conversation. While you are talking, they are not listening but rather forming in their own minds the story they want to tell you. I find that sad.
Let us all LISTEN... Be interested in what people have to say, give people value, appreciation and care. The world will be better for it.
