I am someone who could talk under wet cement. We joke that I literally popped out of the womb chatting instantly about my amazing experience in getting here. In essence, I am also paid to talk for a living and it’s a good gig for a chatterbox. But silence is just as, and often far more powerful.
We all know the saying; two ears, one mouth use them accordingly. But suddenly with so much opportunity for people to talk ALL THE TIME, we are blabbing on constantly; on Instagram, in the comments section, on blogs, websites, in emails, texts, WhatsApp, messenger…on and on it goes. Everyone has so much to say, and so the belief that so many want to hear it.
I heard the most amazing anagram the other day. W.A.I.T. = Why Am I Talking. It’s such a good, ‘take pause and consider’ handbrake. I hope you like it as much as I do.
Written with love,
