This weeks prompt is to listen attentively. I try to do this all the time. Everyone wants to be heard. And only through active listening are able to really hear the other person. Usually when we listen to someone we begin to form our own response to the person, think about other pressing matters, or just don’t really tune in to what the other person is saying. When we really listen, or actively listen to another person we will hear exactly what he or she is trying to say. By doing this, we can then respond in a more meaningful way because we really HEAR the other person.

I have been working on this for a few days now and I am finding that my husband is more appreciative than I had thought before. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve know that he loves me and he cares about what happens to me, but I never really heard it from him. Lately though, I do. I think this brings us closer as well as ensures that I shouldn’t misunderstand him as often because I HEAR him.

Have a great day!
