We are all storytellers. For everything that happens we make a story. These are the stories I'm telling myself, stories designed to explain and inspire, to help and encourage me along my path. I am writing about my insights, thoughts, and reflections to tease out the wisdom hidden in every moment. I invite you to dig out your own gold from the fields of these pages. Even if you disagree with my opinions, your disagreement can spark great inner moments of insight. Comments are welcome. From dialogue, wisdom arises.
Everybody wants to know how to build better relationships. Why is something everybody desires so very hard to find, create or maintain? Obviously, the way we communicate plays a huge role in the satisfaction we feel in our relationships. Additionally, there are some fundamental ideas that just plain make a difference in how we relate to each other and the world around us. Here, I’m writing about what I discover as I explore the world of relationship and how I can help myself do relationship better.
The simple fact is you cannot not communicate. Our words covey meaning and even our silences tell tales. Our body language may shout louder than words. Even when we are alone, we communicate within ourselves, mumbling out loud or murmuring in our minds. We cannot not communicate. So it just plain makes sense to learn how to do it better. In these pages you will find my take on both communication theory and real world applications that we can use to communicate more authentically. Even little changes can pay off big dividends in our personal and professional lives.
Some time ago, I wrote a series of essays. I discovered that for me, writing helped distill moments of insight I experienced as I worked on learning to live life differently and better. Since my writing served me, I hoped it might serve others. I hoped that by sharing, we might all benefit and learn together. In that same spirit, I still maintain these thoughts and reflections. Life really is a marvelous and astonishing thing -- even when it sucks. Together, we can all help create and live powerful, fullfilling lives.
