Mix Thinking with Feeling For Understanding

"More important than being right, or being important, is being truly aware." - Jessica Hagy

It was one of hundreds - maybe thousands - of tweets that fly through my twitter stream on a daily basis. The odds of me seeing, opening, and exploring the link attached to this one were low. But because it was posted by a friend that I haven't connected with recently, I made the time. I'm glad I did.

It was the second time in a week that two different friends, with two different tweets, connected me with Jessica Hagy's writing. Jessica is a contributor to Forbe's magazine and is well known for her award-winning blog, Indexed

The tweet that caught my eye tonight was titled, "Forty Things To Say Before You Die." Each of Hagy's thoughts was illustrated in her distinctively simple style and came with a powerful message. 

Number one, shown here, was one that especially resonated with me. The place where what we think and what we feel intersect is that special place where understanding lives. With understanding comes awareness and a platform for meaningful change is created. 

I'm glad that I have been introduced to Hagy. She says so much in such a simple way.
