What has been holding you back?

What has been holding you back?
Tell me if you know;
I know you may not know;
But it’s what you have to know;
If you want to succeed,
But are not succeeding, as you want,
Something must be holding you back;
And unless you know,
How can you handle it?
What has been holding you back?
Look at your life
And bring that out.
And once you do, and handle it,
Your path will be clear to succeed.


The fault is mine

I invested my heart in you
Because I thought you loved me;
I thought you loved me,
Because you told me you did;
You told me you did
Because you knew it was
What I wanted to hear;
And truly, I wanted to hear
You say it;
That pleased me.
See where I am today;
You have abandoned me in the cold;
Where I tremble like a leaf,
Tossed by a strong wind.
Who do I blame but myself;
The fault is mine;
Much wiser, I have to be;
And not believe everything I hear.

Good place to visit

Do you know the best place to visit
When you go on vacation?
A lovely country in Africa;
With its hills and valleys and plains;
Grassfields and forests abound;
What type of animal would you love to see?
They are all in Cameroon;
This land so fondly called
Africa in miniature;
It has everything Africa has;
A lovely place you will hate to miss;
Come to Cameroon on your next vacation
And meet her lovely, smiling people.

I was inspired by this post by Elena to write this. Elena stated ten countries she would love to visit. I thought she missed one. Hahaha! Cameroon is my country.

Communicating Effectively

I read this post word for word and got captured by the honesty of the writer. I believe you will enjoy reading it too.


Anyone who knows me well knows I have a tough time communicating under pressure, or when I get super emotional. I am the type of girl who feels so strongly, sometimes words can’t describe the pain or happiness I feel, so I stop talking. Or say the entirely wrong thing, my words always come out wrong.
In all my relationships, I have had this problem. I wasn’t able to effectively communicate at some of the most critical times. I didn’t have the tools, or knowledge to say precisely what I meant. In my defense, I am genuinely a good person, and I tried my best to avoid conflict because I hate any confrontation, partially because I don’t know how to talk my way through problems openly.
I’ve recently moved back in with my parents, and good lord the communication in the house is worse than mine has ever been. My…
