I went for a walk today and as I started on the trail the path was so wet and muddy I had to walk really slow and almost turned around because I didn’t want to walk slow but I continued - slowly - and realized what a beautiful reminder to s l o w down - be intentional - listen to the moment.
Today is MLK day, a few years ago I had the honor of visiting the Civil Rights Museum - the stories impacted me so much - it reminded me how important it is for us to tell our stories and even more important for me to listen. Whether these stories are screamed - spoken - softly said or whispered, just listen.
To listen with openness.
To listen with respect.
To listen and hear what is being shared.
To listen and honor these stories.
