When we’re busy with [waves hands around] life, we can miss out on things that are essential for us to see. Or not see, as the case may be.
Who we are is reflected in how we show up (or don’t) and what we choose to say (or not). Those things that aren’t seen can send some of the most powerful messages.
And we can learn a lot about other people by paying attention to those details.
