Shut Up and Talk


About a year and a half ago I jokingly said that to a group of teenage guys I was working with. As soon as I said it, one of them said, "Wait. What? How can I shut up AND talk?"

I honestly hadn't even thought about what I said - it was just one of those things that came out of my mouth that was meant to be funny and confusing at the same time.  It worked.

But, when the young man asked me how he could do both, it hit me. I had actually said something pretty powerful while joking around.

This goes back to the same idea I shared recently about "walking the walk" and not just "talking the talk".

Sometimes we actually "talk" more clearly when we finally just shut up!

Sometimes our words mean absolutely NOTHING!

Sometimes we just need to STOP TALKING!

And, yes, sometimes we need to SHUT UP AND TALK!

I could go on and on about this but, you know what? I think I'll just "shut up and talk".

"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
