“Duos Sella” is the Latin word for two chairs.
We have become this world of fastness. Everything needs to be done fast and in a hurry. We’ve created a world of being so busy yet unproductive. We have fast-food restaurants all around us. Drive-thru coffee. You don’t even have to go to a bookstore anymore to read a book when you have Kindle. And many think that this is the life. But in reality, we are wasting time doing nothing. Meanwhile, time waits for no one. It’s flying by us so fast. We’ve forgotten what it’s like to “stop and smell the roses” or even talk to anyone anymore.
I decided to start this blog and what better time than in the month of May “aka” Mental Health Awareness Month.
When I see two chairs, I see an opportunity to change someone’s life. To become a huge influence and maybe show them a different perspective. To see things through a different lens. To hear them vent and express what they are going through. You’re probably wondering what do chairs have to do with any of this. Well, when you have two chairs you have an opportunity not only to talk but to listen to someone else. You have an opportunity to take a pause. An opportunity to be someone’s shoulder to lean on or just be their soundboard. We have forgotten and lost the sense of communication being face-to-face with people. There are many people that just need someone to listen to them.
Take the time this month to share a day, an event or just a cup of coffee with someone and just listen. You never know what someone is going through until you…LISTEN!
