Desiderata Days ~ Listen

March 26, 2010

A large part of being a writer is listening to, then telling other people’s stories. Everybody has one. It is fascinating to delve into other people’s worlds and take a part of their essence with me on this journey.

Max Ehrmann says:

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story.

When we share our truth, we too are revealing our narrative. Exhibit tolerance as people open up their worlds with you. You may just learn a new way of thinking that changes your own.
