LISTEN TO THE DAY

9 years ago

"Each day has its own rhythms and surprises.  Listen to the day."

(Happy Musings is a newspaper feature syndicated by King Features that I create each day to remind us all that “Life is wonderful!”  I offer it here to brighten your day.  Please share it with your friends.)

I was reading a blog yesterday about the importance of listening, whether it’s to children, friends or strangers (http://www.evolvingmom.com/2008/06/07/the-importance-of-listening/#comments).  The writer, Julie, made her point in a number of ways.  I thought about it myself – the action of receiving from another by listening.  Here are my thoughts: Listening with the ears is one thing.  Listening with the heart is another.  The more warmth we have in receiving from another, it seems to me, the freer we allow the other to be.  It breaks down the illusion of our separateness.

Now there is another kind of listening – that is listening to the day.  Each day, like each person, certainly has its own way and moving with it makes life so much more enjoyable. 

If you think the way I do, I would love to hear from you and I think you would enjoy my Website.

Smiles,

Sally
