Fill In The Blank



_____talk less and listen more.

The quieter we become, the more we can hear. The more we hear, the more we learn.

Your turn!

  1. RESEARCH. Honest to God, this election result was brought to us by the inability to research and apply lessons of history to today.

    3. Research is a huge thing for me, especially with the news. It's important that people check what they're being told/what they're reading instead of taking it at face value. So much fake news, so many lies out there. As the saying goes, if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.

  3. I wish people would not use their mobile phones on public transport.
    In a train recently the whole carriage was party to a conversation with man on phone to his wife/partner trying to agree on plans for the coming weekend. I really did not want to know ... I was passing a good journey time quietly reading a book.
    Grrr ...!!!

    All the best Jan

    1. Oh, Jan, I know exactly what you're talking about! I've experienced this. It is very rude behaviour!

  4. Because you and I often think alike...I can't think of anything I would appreciate more than people speaking less and listening more. That would be a wonderful thing.

    1. I think it would. And empathy is an incredible trait to have. It's really difficult to mistreat others when you're empathetic.

  9. I tired to listen to an angry person on my blog this morning but it only made things worse. I should have just listened and not replied. It only made things so much worse.

    1. I went to see and...I'm sorry. That really spun out of control. I know you meant well but the message wasn't received well. Don't feel too bad. Sometimes we hear only what we are able to hear.

  10. Share more. Feelings, thoughts, whatever-it means a lot when I connect with people during my day and I think we'd all be a lot happier and encouraged by more connection with one another. We're all in this together!

    1. What a great thought, Hannah! We'd understand each other better, which would certainly be a good thing.

    1. That would be the best. Unfortunately, not everyone has the 'tact gene'.

  12. I wish people would get over the election here. It's a system that's worked for years. Time to buck up, get over it and grow up! Next time make sure your person wins by campaigning, voting and not just complaining.

    Sorry, that kinda spewed out. If you want to delete it, you may do so.

    Blessings.

    3. I hope that the upcoming holidays give people something uplifting to focus on.
