There is no greater agony than
bearing an untold story inside you.
Maya Angelou

I remember the day I realized that my grandmother was not going to be available to me for much longer, and that I had grown used to talking to her whenever I wanted. I realized that she had been so attentive to her grandchildren that we expected her to listen to every word we said.

And she did. Even as an adult, I would pour out my day’s experiences to her, unedited. One day, I stopped and asked her to tell me about her life. I asked her to start at the beginning, omitting nothing, and share every detail.
What followed was a beautiful story that I almost missed because I had been too busy telling my own story.

Try asking someone in your world about his or her life’s story, and expect a fantastic moment of connection and wonder.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
