Good Morning!


Have you ever found yourself babbling mindlessly to someone, more because of your discomfort with silence or your love of hearing yourself talk, than because of the importance of what you have to say? I certainly have. Once the embarrassment wore off I would often realize that my attention and focus had shifted away from my words and from the person I was talking with to a mindless place of self-centeredness. Simply put, I wasn’t fully present. 


Thankfully, as I matured and started to master the coaching skills that I have spent the past twelve years learning, I realized that there are many gifts to being fully present. At the top of that list is the gift of not looking like a fool.  Don’t get me wrong, I realize that there are a lot of other places where I can make a fool of myself, but babbling mindlessly is one that I’d like to think I have crossed off my list. 


All kidding aside, since I am now over 40, looking like a fool really doesn’t matter all that much to me anymore, but, honoring other people and their presence in my life does. And for that reason, I am compelled to pay better attention to whether I am fully present or not and to do my best to do so as often as I can. By doing so, I honor myself and those around me.   


In the interest of not babbling any further, I will leave you with a simple request. How about spending more time paying attention to what comes out of your mouth this week and challenging yourself to listen more and talk less?  I look forward to “hearing” how it goes.


Have a Thoughtful week! 




Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week:  "Blessed is the man who having nothing to say abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact."
- George Eliot


Question:  How might you embrace the fact that you have been blessed with two ears and only one mouth? What might happen if you did?


Affirmation:   "As I listen more and talk less, I experience a greater connection to myself and others. In being fully present we are all blessed!"
