Day 3 of the KRC Random Acts of Kindness Challenge
Today’s Reflection – and Challenge – is about listening! With Open ears, open eyes, open mind and an open heart!
Although our sense of hearing might be the first that comes to mind when we think about listening, I’ve come to realize that listening doesn’t only involve our ears! To really listen compassionately and empathetically, we also need to open our eyes to ‘see’ how someone is feeling, open our minds to understand what’s going on behind the words they’re saying (and we’re hearing) and open our hearts so that we ‘listen’ in a kind, caring and helpful way.
So, today, for the KRC Random Acts of Kindness Challenge…
Listen! With open ears, open eyes, open mind and an open heart! Kindly. The way you’d like others to listen to you!
