I'm so excited about my new word! (I wish I had some pretty "Listen" graphic to share)
Listen contains so much meaning for me and the direction in which I want to move with my life. So many meanings and applications.
- Listen for meaning behind words
- Listen to what others really need
- Listen to my heart
- Listen to intuition
- Listen to callings
- Listen to my children
- Listen to my friends
- Listen to my body
- Listen without judgement
- Listen to opportunity
- Listen to God
- Listen with an open heart and mind
- Just Listen
Plus "Listen" is pretty close to "Kristen."
"Listen, Kristen" just flows off the tongue! Like it was meant to be.
See? See? It's going to be a great word.
I might have to keep it around for a few years like I did "Patience." Seems like I need ample time to sit, learn, and truly absorb the meaning and complexity of a word.
My first "Listen" assignment to myself is to read the book Seven Thousand Ways to Listen which was a birthday gift from my friend Nona.
(I was dying to read it sooner, but knowing "Listen" was going to be my new work, I also wanted to save the read and use it to start off 2016.)
