We very often look for implicit meaning in words
In what’s said and outwardly expressed
But sometimes the meaning lies in what’s left unsaid.

Words can indeed cut like a knife
But sometimes the pain is not in what’s included
But rather in what’s left omitted.
Not in the noise, but rather in the silence.
Not in the directness, but rather in the hesitation

In that awkward pause
That fleeting moment of emptiness, that’s left unfilled
In that little window of opportunity, left untaken.

And sometimes the words just don’t add up
Because they don’t seem to reflect the truth of the matter

So if you’re looking for the truth
It’s important you realize that sometimes the truth lays dormant in what’s not expressed.

So make the point to listen to the silence –
And learn to read between the lines.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
