Recently I gathered with some friends that I see each month. We take turns going around the circle and discussing what is on our minds.
When it was my turn I was talking about the artist’s retreat I went on recently and other tidbits about my life. There was nothing extraordinary in what I was saying, and yet I noticed that everyone in the room was giving me their rapt attention.
I was struck by what an incredible gift it is when people truly listen to what you’re saying. It also gave me reason to consider if I extend myself to others in that fashion.
As I considered this, I realized that few of us have much opportunity in our lives to be truly heard. When it happens it is memorable.
