“When we listen with the intent to understand others, rather than with the intent to reply, we begin true communication and relationship building. Opportunities to then speak openly and to be understood come much more naturally and easily.
Life can be complicated, but happiness…is simple. Of course, we try our best to make it complicated, but if we look closely, it’s really very simple.
But here is an idea that works for me and helps me to make life and parenting simpler and all it can be…keep positive and uplifting quotes close by, and read them often. Because in a perfect world we read something once, record it in our brain, and never seem to read it again.
Well, you like me, probably find that your world is far from perfect. I have doubts, fears and disappointments in my life, and I need doses of inspiration to bring me back to where I should be and to re-direct me to what’s really important in my life. It helps me gain a wider sense of perspective and the bigger picture again.
So every Sunday I share an inspiring saying with you so I’d love to hear what quotes,videos or books uplift and inspire you so post up your ideas and let’s help motivate and inspire each other !
