#OneWord Thursday: #Listen to the Nighttime Fall

Daisy BeeA follow up to my Tuesday’s Kick Tush post, “The 7 Don’ts of Listening,” I decided to dedicate this week to listening:  to people, to pets, to the rustling trees, the chirping birds, to my thoughts, to the nighttime fall; as well as the food calling my name.

I listen, observe, take notice, tune in and in so doing a calm washes over me, and I find myself making healthy choices with ease.  For some, this is an obvious happening; for others, it might not make sense.  Either way, I invite you to try it; to really listen to any and all that you can listen to and see if your relationship to food miraculously improves.  Then…write me!

Here are a few Listening Quotes to Chew On from Our Lady of Weight Loss a.k.a. Our Lady of Weightlessness, she who assures that the ‘light’ and ‘lite’ are found in the silence!

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. ~ Stephen  R. Covey

When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen. ~ Ernest Hemingway

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

There’s a lot of difference between listening and hearing. ~  G.K. Chesterton

I am bilingual, speaking English and body language.  I prefer the latter, because I can speak it silently and without listening and while my back is turned. ~ Jarod Kintz

Part of doing something is listening. We are listening. To the sun. To the stars. To the wind. ~ Madeleine L’Engle

You’re short on ears and long on mouth. ~ John Wayne

An appreciative listener is always stimulating. ~ Agatha Christie

The art of conversation is the art of hearing as well as of being heard. ~ William Hazlitt

We have two ears and only one tongue in order that we may hear more and speak less. ~ Diogenes Laertius

Stop. Be present.  Empty yourself.  Wait.  Listen.  The answers are in the silence. ~ Janice Taylor
