When silence speaks loudest

      Some times in life, We go through moments where you feel like you need to be heard, because you know the truth, and you would like for the world to know the truth. So you try to talk to whoever will care to listen with the hope that the will hear your truth, and when they don't you get even more frustrated and try to get even louder just so you can be heard. I've been going through something similar, till I got tired of explaining myself, and trying to make people understand my truth that I decided to just stay silent. Whenever the subject came up, my response was simply: NO COMMENT!!! 
And what do you know, as sure as the sun sets in the evening, the truth can't be hidden forever. You can sugar coat it, twist it, over look it, ignore it, It will not change. The bottom line will still remain as the truth; And it always manifests when you least expect it. I've since discovered that you don't always have to speak out or be loud to get the truth out. On the contrary
"sometimes being loud silent is the only way to speak the truth"
You know that saying " silence is golden"

I have since discovered a treasure in silence because Sometimes 
simply cannot capture the subtle nuances of your feelings. In such
 times its better to avoid being verbally misunderstood, by letting the 
silence speak through your eyes, your breathing, your posture.
Yes!! It works.. Silence speaks volumes. Silence sometimes says "I need some
 peace and calm; It can also say, I cant be bothered with the world, or am in 
awe or better yet, I know the truth, so i don't have to embarrass myself 
arguing with ignorance.
Nothing spoken, and yet so much perceived from just a sigh, a smile, a tear in
So the next time you are faced with a situation and you don't want to argue 
because you know the truth, don't compromise your integrity, just be silent 
and smile. Arguing won't get you any further than it will alter the truth. 
In the end, it always unfolds and will set you free.... so Hush

Its the simple things...

In life, sometimes we tend to focus on the bigger things... we measure our success by how rich we are, how famous we are, or popular we are. We accord too much importance to the material things, and we forget that they perish, and can be replaced. I mean lets face it, There will always be someone more popular, richer, prettier, name it. The trends will always change so no matter what you do or try to hold on to them, they will never stay the same. We often forget to appreciate the little things that count. The ones we don't ask God for and He just gives us through grace... The air we breathe, the eyes that see, a mouth that speaks, the sun setting in the sky... those annoying siblings that we love to hate....

So today, my post is not going to be about some inspirational message... am just taking some time out to appreciate God for the simple things:
The nieces and god-children
The ones who lift you up when you need it....
The Post grad friends
The old school friends....
The ones you cant describe
the crazy cousins

 The ones who are Divas  
The ride or die family....
The friends turned family
The Childhood friends...
The cousins that make you feel cool
The friends you love to hate
The friends that defy the distance...
Annoying friends you cant live without
the Cousins
workmates turned friends
My silly friends
My Job
My awesome Workmates 
I Have a lot to be grateful for, A life that is full of love, God that always has my back, a loving family, awesome friends and my job that I love to hate. Often I over look these simple things and yet at the end of the day nothing makes me smile like knowing how blessed I am to be me. Take a moment and count your blessings... CheersXoXoTanya Love
