Push Pause is a tiny snippet posted every Tuesday. It is an invitation for you to push pause on the tasks at hand and intentionally take a moment to reflect on your soul journey.

 

Zip It

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” -Stephen R. Covey

Push Pause: Today zip it. In other words, listen more than you speak. If you must speak, ask questions to allow the other person to share more. They have something on their heart. Whether it be light or heavy–something is there and you have the honor to listen. And really, they don’t need to hear anymore advice, clichés or anything about you. They really don’t. They need someone who cares enough to zip it. So listen with your ears, engage with your spirit and connect wholeheartedly.

Are you challenged or comfortable with listening?

Let’s meet again on Thursday to go deeper in the journey…together. ~L
