I missed blogging for the first time yesterday. I feel bad but know that I am only human and working 16 hours straight left me little time to do anything but sleep before heading back in to work this morning. What a whirlwind of a weekend. I am glad I could help out my coworkers. I HOPE that I return to feeling normal after some good sleep tonight. It was a busy weekend with lots of surprises. Empathy for others fills me up despite sometimes leaving me feeling like my bucket is empty. It always amazes me how this is possible. The process of listening and trying to connect can really take it out of me but fills my heart all in a days work or double shift. “Meeting a stranger can be totally fleeting and meaningless, for example, unless you enter the individual’s world by finding out at least one thing that is meaningful to his or her life and exchange at lest one genuine feeling. Tuning in to others is a circular flow: you send yourself out toward people; you receive them as they respond to you.”
