The Power of Silence, Part 2.

Not quite an extension of my previous blog, more of a different angle.

I have learnt through my life, that silence can sometimes be an answer.

It’s a fact.

You don’t always have to get the last word in, although there is some satisfaction to that. Every once in a while, if you don’t agree with someone, or if answering is going to cause an argument, just keep your mouth shut. Easy.

For instance: “Sweetie, I’ve been thinking… I think my mother must come and live with us.”

Silence.

Or: “I’ve been thinking… Don’t you think we need to get a new car Angel?”

Silence.

See, easy!! It’s a bit like ‘do what you want’, or ‘whatever’, only better.

Also, you don’t have to ‘win’ every argument – winning an argument is sometimes actually losing an argument. So, if you think about it, sometimes by avoiding an argument, you win. Does that make any sense to you?

But anyway, I have learnt there is power in silence, and it is wise to use it every now and then.

Try it sometime. 😉

oh yes…

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)
