Brenda Knight (author of Random Acts of Kindness) encourages us to listen more to the people around us- it an act of kindness.
Listening is one of the greatest gifts you can give anyone. As humans we all want to be heard, so start by listening a little more each day. Listen to your children, your spouse, your friends, even the Chitty Cathy in your office. You, in turn, will be repaid by being listened to with far more attention and care.
