Good Conversation

Posted by Jacinta Hin on November 3, 2008

In my busy life I easily lose track of myself. My to-do list is long and everyday I am distracted by an endless stream of both important and mundane tasks.

Yet, some days take an unforeseen turn.

An unexpected encounter with an old friend turned out to be an opportunity to review and reflect on what matters.

Through our discussions I was able to articulate some things about myself and put scattered thoughts into words. I walked away with a refreshed mind and a renewed awareness.

The timing could not have been more perfect. My world is changing and has been asking me for a while where I stand.

Good conversation can be a goldmine of ideas and insights. Somehow we get connected to a deeper level of knowing. We suddenly make sense of what before might just have been a vague notion. We get reminded of something we forgot or pointed to something that is important.

Good conversation is a moment – or to be more precise a couple of hours – of standing still, allowing us to take a step back. It provides a mirror to see and hear ourselves. Our words echo back to us and pick up new meaning in the flow of sentences going back and forward.

All the more reason to take the time to sit down, catch up with an old friend, and just talk.
