Simple Advice of the Day

There’s a time and a place to speak up and take initiative. But my goodness there’s an even bigger time and place where it’s better to remain silent.

There’s a time and a place to speak up and take initiative. But my goodness there’s an even bigger time and place where it’s better to remain silent.

Whether you believe the Bible is truth or not, there’s wisdom in Scripture that is timeless. A verse in proverbs warns,

It is better to keep quiet, and let people think you are a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

There’s a time and a place to speak up and take initiative. But my goodness there’s an even bigger time and place where it’s better to remain silent. Some people love to hear themselves talk; and, without even realizing it or sometimes in an instant, will discredit themselves simply by speaking. If you don’t ever come across these people, I hate to say it, but you are that people. Truth is, however, we’ve all messed up in this way. It’s not about always having the smartest thing to say–it’s about waiting and watching. Be patient and, when the time is right and your thought are collected, say with clarity and passion what is on your mind and heart.

I have found a love for culture and travel and have spent the better part of my life exploring this great earth. I had the pleasure of living in Argentina for a year living in a small town called San Miguel Del Monte where I learned the harmony brought by a good cup of mate and the wondrous ways of cooking and eating meat. I experienced big city atmosphere that Argentine cities such as Buenos Ares, Cordoba, and Santa Fe had to offer but not without descending to the breath-taking landscape of the south, boasting destinations such as Patagonia and the Andes Mountains. I also studied in California, traveled down the Pacific Coast Highway to visit the Arizonian home of a friend I met while out west. We stayed in Yuma for a few nights and walked the border over to Mexico. So many more stories to tell but I will only list places– Guatemala (about 8 or 9 times), all over the Caribbean, Kenya, and several handfuls of cities and states around the great USA.
