With each passing day, with each new encounter, accompanies an opportunity for me to collect comments, recommendations, requests, and opinions suggesting what I should be. All offering the promise that if I bend in their suggested direction I somehow will be rewarded.
What I have learned is how dangerous offering advice to others can be. When asked what is my weakness, I would say listening, I’m just a good listener. Of course my answer sounds ridiculous until I say I don’t want to be just a good listener, I want to be an effective listener. I want to be the listener others need me to be, I want to be the listener I need to be for myself.
It’s my hope “Be Part Of The Narrative” never becomes a place where people come seeking advice. It’s my hope “Be Part Of The Narrative” creates a collection of narrated experiences where you the reader learn to truly listen to the messages woven throughout the stories written within the journals entries.
