What You Hear

“Don’t believe everything you hear.” Easier said then done, right? Don’t we have the tendency to over-hear sometimes? Even when we know the source is not the most reputable one, we still hold on to tid-bits of “gossipy” information.

Taking what we hear with a grain of salt is not only wise, but healthy in many ways. When we misinterpret and/or grasp on to words, (we al know that words are extremely powerful whether positive or negative) just like food, it is digested into our physique and can cause chemical reactions. For example, when someone gets really upset, their blood pressure rises, they may began to sweat, hipper ventilate, shake…etc – this all from something someone said to or about them.

So what am I saying? Don’t digest everything you hear. Listen intently for the good, but taking everything in, is not always the healthiest choice.

It’s Monday and we WILL have an AWESOME week! MUAH

  2. I needed this today. There is so much truth to it. And because of my analytical nature, I read too much into things that, aren't really that deep. Thanks for posting.

  3. Your blog reminds me of Rick Hanson's Just One Thing emails that I subscribe too (www.rickhanson.net/writings/just-one-thing). His are from a buddhist/neuropsychologist point of view, but are practical and helpful, as are your observations of life. How lucky to have people who "get it" and are willing to write about it. Thanks!

  6. When dealing with people I put almost zero faith in words. I believe actions. People will say almost anything. Actions reveal the truth. People will declare any number of things as their views, priorities, values, etc. Actions never lie.
