Love in the room

I was listening to a podcast, Hello Monday, where Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love was talking about what she wants to remembered for.

She said an amazing quote: “I want to be remembered for being love in the room.”

What a totally powerful and incredible statement. To make sure everyone in that room is felt, heard, listened to and cherished.

Something that I think about a lot: how do I make everyone I talk to feel absolutely comfortable in their own skin. That those who I talk with they can feel a sense of belonging and care, no matter who they are and what they do.

I am working lately on taking more pauses and space to let conversation seep slowly, to let it open up and unfold and help love take its own sweet time. One room at a time.
