Are You Listening?

October 12, 2017

I know, I know.  If you are a mother, wife, or simply just a woman we are constantly dealing with listening to others. So I know that you are rolling your eyes at my question in the title. That question isn’t if you are listening to others, but if you are listening to yourself.

That’s right. This is probably the one time someone will tell you to talk to yourself, and not call you crazy. When was the last time you seriously talked to yourself? Not just the mumbled cusses under our breath for forgetting something, or reciting the grocery list.

Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking. - Bernard M. Baruch

Have you asked yourself if you are happy? If the answer is no, have you asked why? You need to. We go through life on autopilot a lot. We get caught up in the hustle and bustle of it all. Sometimes we find ourselves wondering why are we so down, or why don’t we smile as much as we used to. It’s because you aren’t listening to your body, your soul, you.  

Why should you listen to yourself?
  • ·         You know you better than anyone.
  • ·         Ignoring yourself is a way of keeping your inner dreams quiet.
  • ·         You know what you truly want and need.
  • ·         It’s the only way to get to know yourself.
Why wouldn't you want to get to know yourself? You're awesome!

I know some of that sounded a bit “whacky”, but re read it. It makes a lot of sense. I mean who else knows you or what you want out of life better than yourself? If you ignore yourself, you ignore your dreams and desires. Ignoring those things are a serious problem, and something that must be addressed because those are what lead you to your purpose. Why wouldn’t you want to get to know yourself better? You are awesome!

So I’ll ask one more time.

Are you listening?
