Be Quiet

“Sometimes words aren’t useful” ~Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby in Ford v. Ferrari

In this 2 1/2 hour blockbuster, these 4 words resonated so much with me. What an important message to convey-you don’t always have to talk! You can be present and still have a positive energy exchange without speaking.

When I practice this in all the little moments each day, I notice a positive difference in my relationships. When I stop this mindfulness practice, I notice a dip in my positive energy exchanges.

I encourage you to give it a try. It is not easy and takes tons of practice. Be present. Listen. Observe. Reflect. Write. If you ask a question, care about and accept the answer. Zip it. Go deeper.

Works for me too. I learned this when my introverted son was born! So hard for me, and when the best lessons ever happen!
