Eyes wide open.
We have all been there.
Somehow a bit misunderstood.
Our teenagers filter us out at times.
Maybe even some of our own friends or colleagues.
Have you ever been misunderstood?
Not the grammer, speech, language kind of misunderstanding.
But the simple communication's kind of misunderstanding.
Wouldn't it be easier if we all had the power to see through others?
Maybe read one another's mind?
Scary maybe, but then again it sure would make all of us more candid,
and honest in how we dealt with life and one another.
Communication is about being more transparent.
It's being direct and having straight talks.
The kind of honest conversations that end up clarifying the narrative.
It's a lot like the opposite of a song about communicating,
only with open eyes.
The lyric by John Lennon goes, “Living is easy with eyes closed,
misunderstanding all you see…”
Just think about that and tell me what you think.
Make it a great día!
