Happy Monday! 

How did your intent for last week pan out?

What did you set your intent for this week as?

These posts have focused mainly on self care because in order to be our best us, and care for others we need to get our own house in order. The old saying “you can’t pour from an empty cup” rings true in so many ways.

But for this week I want to focus on how to be better at helping those around us. Listening to Understand is a habit that is easy to fall out of, especially when topics are hot, and emotions are thick. Answer to yourself, how many times do you reach out to your friends and family to see how they are doing, and just listen to what they have to say? When someone comes to you in despair, do you focus on them, or plot out your reply while they are talking?

I want to get better at listening to understand. From not turning the conversation back to me when someone is talking (i.e.- let me tell you about my experience . . . ) to reaching out to people just to listen and understand them better.
