Why is it so difficult to really listen with the intent to understand? It’s much easier to just hear but not really care. We experience this were ever we go from a home environment to the workplace and beyond. Do we have two ears and one mouth for a reason?
When you are out walking and accidentally trip and fall, do you bounce back up like a rubber ball and look around you with a sheepish smile while brushing off the evidence and continue like nothing has happened?

I would like to give you the back story of my life as a book worm. From a very early age, I’ve been reading books, from children books, teen books, to more adult books. Most of the books has been fiction, but some has been based on real events.
