Yesterday my senses were attuned to actively listening for positive speech. I noticed throughout the day just how much people like giving bad news or embellishing stories that perhaps weren’t quite so bad as they happened. This type of conversation really drew the listeners in and by the end of it they were all telling ‘negative’ things that they had experienced. Just one positive word would have shined out like a beacon of light, but no, the slough of despond just grew bigger.
Observing this made me think, how many times have I joined in a conversation like this, fuelled the fire, surrounded myself in negativity. All too easily done.
Going forward its time to be mindful of how I say things and think before I speak.
