Learning to listen with gratitude.

When someone makes a suggestion for us to do something in a better way, and supposing we agree with their suggestion, we can either get it caught up in ego and feel poorly that we didn’t think of it that way the first time around (my absolute default), or we can be thankful that they are in our lives and helping us think of new and better ways to do something.

Thinking comes from patterns. And we often get stuck in our own ways, or simply don’t have the time or know how to see things a different way. If we are lucky, we have people in our lives with different experiences, different expertise, and a different viewpoint.
