Motivation Monday!

Happy Monday! I hope you all are doing well. I still can't believe how fast time is going by. It's already the end of March! Although it may seem like the year is already flying by, don't get discouraged in trying to pursue whatever it is that you want. It's never too late to make right now the right time! Of course life is all about becoming a better version of yourself and trying to grow as a person. One of the greatest books I've ever picked up this year is Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...and it's all small stuff which basically lists a bunch of things that we as humans should let go. One point in particular that caught my attention is what I wanted to share with you today:

Plenty of us have the bad habit of communicating with someone solely to respond. We are not really listening to understand but listening to talk back. We are always trying to get our point across because in reality we think it's always all about US. The mistake we make is we are ignoring the feelings of who we are talking to. In order to become a better person we have to learn to give and take. Next time you catch yourself in a tough conversation try taking a step back and listening to what the other has to say. You'll find yourself feeling much better that you are putting in the effort to change a bad habit and your conversations will go in the healthier direction.
