Day 10/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 2017: LISTEN

Day 10

How many of us are guilty of blandly smiling and agreeing to someone speaking to us, when we have no idea what was just said?  I totally am, and I hate that I do it most often to my husband.  Speaking face to face with people is becoming a lost art.  It’s all too common to see people buried in their cell phones even when sitting right next to someone (like at a restaurant table!), or have ear plugs in to avoid conversation.  How and why have we allowed ourselves to stop listening to people?  Not just hearing them, truly listening.  The world is full of harsh convictions and wounded comebacks.  Is it because we aren’t listening?  Let’s stop being so distracted, give focused attention on the people in our lives, and spread love face to face.

About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
