When I’m conducting interviews for the magazine, I work hard at listening so that I may do a good job at hearing as much of the heart (The heart song) of the person as I can. I’m currently working on an interview I conducted recently with a phenomenal person. She has an amazing Spirit and an amazing heart for people. She is passionate about what she believes and it ignites others. I’m thinking to myself, how can I convey what I heard to the readers? How do I make sure they hear the song of her heart and her passion?
In the midst of all the writing and thinking, things shifted and I started thinking about how do I and how can I convey my heart to the people who come across my path? I mean really. Do people really hear me? Do I let the real me emerge or do I hide back pieces? Is the message of my heart fully exposed and potent or is it watered down. Do those whom I encounter actually know what is important to me? Are my beliefs and passions transparent? Am I actually able to touch people and impact their lives with the song of my heart? What about this…Do I take time to carefully and honestly listen to my own heart? Do I even know my own heart? Hmm…
What about you? What song does your heart sing? Do you listen? Do you know the words? Is it a lively tune? Is it one of deep passion? Is it sad? How do you feel when you sing it? Can you and do you convey it to others? How do others feel when they hear it? Hmmm….
Just a thought.
