Roxie's Powder Room's Love Dare: 29 Acts of Love, Day 2
Hello there Lovebugs :)
We're moving right along into Day 2 of "Roxie's Powder Room's Love Dare: 29 Acts of Love".
Today's Act of Love is: LISTEN BEFORE YOU SPEAK!
Yes, we're still walking in patience today by listening. You may be wondering, what does listening have to do with patience? Well, think about all of those conversations where you cut someone off or didn't give them the opportunity to speak at all. Let me tell you: listening has its advantages!
Merriam-Webster defines listening as "to pay attention to someone or something in order to hear what is being said..." Do you know that we possess the capacity to listen so intently that we can hear what people are not saying? We miss a lot of things simply because we believe it's more important to speak as oppose to listen. So today, focus on listening to whomever you are having a conversation with. Allow them to say everything they would like to say before you even speak. Yes, it will take self-control. Yes, it may even be uncomfortable. But I guarantee, you will learn more by listening than you will by talking!
Be sure to write down your struggles, challenges and outcomes of each act of love you perform. Also, make sure you use the hashtag #RPRLOVEDARE on all social media sites to show participation in this challenge.
Now, on your mark. Get ready. Set. LOVE!
