Fear

FEARv.intr.
1. To be afraid.
2. To be uneasy or apprehensive.

Fear is an emotion so silently strong that people don't even realise when it sneaks up on them and is controlling their lives.

Fear is what keeps you stagnant because you don't want to fail or it's what pushes you to succeed because you don't want to fail.

Fear is what keeps the battered woman with her abusive lover. Even though she calls it love, ultimately it is fear.

Fear of being alone or starting over is what causes people to settle in an unhappy relationship.

Fear of "the love of my life" leaving me is what makes the too young teenage girl have sex with her boyfriend even when she knows she is not ready.

Fear of not being accepted or cool is what makes people do things they normally won't do.

Fear of being fat is what leads young girls to anorexia.

Fear of sounding stupid is what makes us not speak up when we need to.

Fear of rejection is what makes us let that girl or guy slip away when we had a chance to say something.

Fear of the Unknown is what makes us stay safe in our comfort zone and we never dare venture out the box. We rationalise it as being "sensible" but one day we wake up and wonder where time has gone.

Here's hoping that everyone at some point in their lives, gets armed with the weapon to fight fear which is COURAGE. Courage to do the things we know we should be doing, Courage to fight for our heart's desire and Courage to stand up to anything that dares to stand in our way. Have a wonderful night or day, Blogsville.

Enjoy Jazmin Sullivan's - Fear

Happy Easter Y'all!

Hi guys, I don't think I remember an easter that I have been excited about. But I took lent seriously this year, so I was excited about Easter. Church was so awesome today so it capped off my Easter excitement. It was Celtic themed, so there were trumpets and drums and Alleluia songs left right and center. The priest today happened to be Nigerian and the tagline/summary of the sermon was as a believer you should know and believe that for every Good Friday that you experience there is an Easter ahead. Basically, for every storm or tough time that you encounter by the Grace of God there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The same Lord who died for our sins will provide comfort in our tough times. Happy Easter once again,Blogsville! Have a good day ahead.

ps does anyone remember Easter Monday in Naija where it was west indies carnival day? fun times.

HONESTY ME-MEs

Hellllooooo Bloggers!, Taynement woke up on the right side of the bed and has been in a decent mood all day. I think I finally have the energy to do a MeMe. I am not quite sure what it is sha because I only saw Original Mgbeke's and I deduced that you just pretty much write about yourself so here goes:

So I think I am like some dichotomy of myself or something or like my friend said(which made someone who overheard laugh):"maybe you were supposed to be a twin"(by the way the thought of that just freaked me the hell out). But, this is why it's good to know yourself and not base it on people becos you go confuse, lol. I'll give you examples:

- I hate meeting new people, I get so nervous hoping I don't say the wrong thing or make a fool of myself or wondering what they are thinking etc BUT I am the girl in a room that will walk up to someone and ask why they are just sitting around. I can't say I am a shy person, I'll say or do whatever my spirit moves me to do. I have been complimented on my social skills and told I leave an impression.

- Someone described me as passive aggressive the other day but I bet my coworkers and some of my friends would disagree. What someone would call passive aggressive, I call knowing how to pick my battles and not attacking every single thing.

- Some people would describe me as a talker and always talking about myself BUT on the other hand some people say I am surface and don't really say much about myself.

- I fret a LOT about my weight and my body BUT I have no problem being nude in front of people(not that i do that..ok not all the time)

How weird? Anways other things about me:

- I don't get angry quickly (except on the road and my fav word there is: asshole) but I DO get irritated easily, tooo easily in fact. But thank God, I get over it just as quickly. I no dey keep stuff for mind.

- I am SOOOOO sensitive. Chei! the thing dey even vex me sef. I wonder where I got it from too cuz noone in my family is like that.

-I have been told that I am intuitive. Some of my friends call me CIA or Psycho Winsh(lol). I am fascinated by the human psyche and always try to understand the reasoning behind someone's actions. So i basically study human beings continuously for fun and make up stories in my head about what could be the problem, most times when I do voice them out loud, I am usually right..but not all the time.

- Okay, so one of my pet peeves is PANTY LINES!!!!! Dear God, that ish irks the heck outttttaaa me!. Like how can you dress up and look cute and just have digging line separating and cutting into your ass cheeks like that ehn? why?? It ruins the whole effect my sisters. The ting dey do me so, that the other day my coworker who is a repeat offender got pulled to the side by Taynement who proceeded to tell her the dangers of panylines. I think my mission was successful :).My sisters invest in seamless pata, gstring or thongs. Do it for my sanity :D

- I'll admit I am a messy person, but I have some OCD tendencies. Some things just have to be a certain way or else my body will be itching. E.g at work my windows have to be arranged a certain way: My outlook first, Internet Explorer next, then Excel Sheets and so on and so forth. If something shuts down and screws it all up, Taynement has been known to shut down her computer so it's arranged the way I want it. Sue me! :p

- I hate being told what to do, I have a smart mouth, I hate shoes - yes SHOES, I think I could win for laziest human on earth(my rich husband where you at?), friendships are very important to me, I love my friends and think they are one of my prized possessions on earth, I live by 2 mottos in life - Learn something new everyday and Always strive to be a better person.

Of course I have a lot more but emm I can't be airing them all out here. So there you have it, a lirru something about Taynement. Have a wonderful day bloggers!


Oh wait! I don't know how to do that Blog Roll deal and I think it might be helpful for me to have, any volunteers to show me how? Danke!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ONE OF MY OLDEST, DARLINGEST, STUBBBORNEST AND MOST COMPLICATED FRIEND..LOVE YOU MUCHO MI PANDA! :D

My current favorite naija song that I think is appropriate:

The Climb

Teeeheee...sorry oh all you horny, sexless members of blogsville. I am amused by it all and couldn't resist. Sorry I am not posting about that kind of climbing.haha.Anywhoo, I was going to do an honesty me me but I am so frigging tired and lazy that I am gonna have to pass. Instead I am going to post lyrics to a song I really like called The Climb, even though I think most people will scoff at it because of who sang it. If you didn't know, know now that Taynement is a music agbaya, I don't discriminate lol( I will not mention the name, go do research, lol). Just a lil' encouragement for anyone who is about to give up whether it be getting a degree, working 2 jobs to stay afloat in this economy, trynna get that business idea of ground, start a new career etc.I believe everything happens for a reason and by God's grace we shall all reap the fruits of our labor. So stay strong fellow bloggers and keep ya head up.

P.s - Thanks to those that commented on my last blog post, I had a moment and I feel much better than I did that day.


I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming but
There's a voice inside my head sayin,
You'll never reach it,
Every step I'm taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm gonna to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing,
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down but
No I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on, cause

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It's all about
It's all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

Issues

Everybody has issues I know that. I am really hoping this is some PMS related deal but I have issues I wish I could magically dispel. I really shouldn't be feeling like this, it's not even that serious and I can't even say it out loud cuz it'll be one of those things that don't make any sense. I really thought I had gotten past this issue from childhood but I guess it wants to remind me that it once existed. Well nothing to do but shrug it off and keep on trucking.*back to being smily*. Have a lovely weekend bloggers.
