Never underestimate the gift and power of a simple word or phrase to another.
I was talking to someone I barely knew and responded to him saying, “We need to practice self-compassion; sometimes we forget we are worthy of it.” I felt surprised when he said, “Please stop right there. My life has been upside down and I need to hear what you’ve just said.”
Had we both made a choice to be intuitive or aware?
I was unaware of his particular circumstances and was speaking from a heartfelt place. His life was in more chaos than he had revealed and he had chosen to be in conversation with his eyes and heart open.
It was a simple reminder to both of us about never underestimating the gift that a simple phrase or word can be to another person; a reminder that an open heart and spirit can feed and be fed. What will you not underestimate today?
- Speak from your own heartfelt authenticity
- Be present to the encounter or conversation with another
Notice how the alignment of your words and actions become connecting points with the heart of another.
