As I'm sitting here getting to listen to a podcast and deciding what time Toker should hit the hay I'm always amazed about the power of listening and communication. Maybe it's because I truly care about everyone who has touched my life...well maybe not everyone... :o)
I've always been a pretty good listener but my communication skills are severely lacking (hence the reason I have an ex-wife) but I have learned as I've approaching THAT AGE that not only do I listen I also can give pretty good advice as well.
Someone reached out to me this evening, just for perspective and for maybe the first time in a long time I felt okay in giving it. As everyone knows I am a pretty opinionated person but I have never tried to tell anyone something just because I wanted to open my mouth. Tonight I spoke from my heart but I also used my past for balance...
Did it work??
Back to my Confessions:
- In the video section of MySpace, they have Family Guy episodes. I've missed out on this season because of traveling all the time, but I found them out last night and I've been laughing ever since. They make my night.
- The holidays are coming soon. If I don't have your address please send it to me as soon as you can. I would like to start my Christmas cards right after Thanksgiving. I won't be beating some people but you can never get an early start...and there will be NO Christmas letter...the last one I wrote rubbed some people the wrong way....HAHAHAHA!!!!
- The time change sucks. It takes me a good month for my body to get settled. It's almost 8 and I'm ready to pass out...so with that comment..
