Be teachable…

This week I had the privilege of sitting with some amazing women.  They all shared their incredible journeys.  They were poignant, heartfelt stories, others were uplifting and encouraging.

One theme seems to run through all of the conversations…be teachable.  Each one of them imparted some small nugget that left me filled, thinking, and challenged.

I realized that no matter where we are in life, we must stay teachable.

When you are teachable, you are forgiving

When you are teachable, you are understanding 

When you are teachable, you are loving

When you are teachable, you are exploring

When you are teachable, you are creating

When you are teachable, you are inventing

When you are teachable, you are growing,

When you are teachable, you are listening…

There is grace when you are teachable.  There is humility when you are teachable.  There is submission when you are teachable.

I found myself being so very thankful that in every conversation, I took something away that made me grow and move forward.  It wasn’t about my opinion, my thoughts, my experience.  It was about embracing their experience with kindness, respect, and understanding.  It was about empathy, compassion, and growth.  As I continue to pass through this beautiful life that I have been given to live with all its hills and valleys, may I always live with an open heart and listen.

Lesson:

It’s not always about what you have to say, but how much you listen.

‘Til Tuesday
