Listening becomes more complicated when you add other factors.
Opinions. Ego. Authority. Knowledge.
Sometimes we prefer to be right than to listen to the other side. I am the first to admit my struggle with this challenge.
I've been listening when it's easy and natural but not always when there's the biggest potential to grow. Differences in opinion don't always have to lead to arguments. If we listen, receive and really consider another point of view, we may be opening up a hidden path.
I am thankful for all those bright and vibrant individuals who came together tonight to bravely share creativity. I am better for listening to their thoughts. I am stronger for quieting my own.
