When I Look At You

When I look at you is an awesome post written by Keri. L. Read! Enjoy!

Keri L.

We need to have a talk. So sit down, be quiet, and let me get this off my chest, because this is something you need to hear, this is something you need to know. You need to know what I see when I look at you.

When I look at you, I see someone who has overcome incredible odds, someone who went into the fight already wounded, yet still won. When I look at you, I don’t see the weakness you feel so often, I see strength -strength you need to realize you possess. I don’t see your mistakes, I see your accomplishments, your achievements, and believe me, there is a lot. When I look at you, I don’t see what you see, I see what you can’t see. I see the smile that comes to your eyes when you hear something funny, I see the tears that fill them…

Thoughtful Promises

Promises mean a lot

Not to be taken lightly

It’s a seal of wager

Mostly made in the heat of the moment

Consequences of failure not considered

Make a thoughtful promise

Keep to your words.


Do Women Really Fall for Flattery?

Over the years, there has been a saying that ” If you want a woman to comply to your requests, try using flattery to persuade her.” Really I wonder if every or any man can get away with this with all women. It may have worked a couple of times, in fact it has worked 98 percent of the time used.  Flattery plays well with women. YES!  But it doesn’t sit still. She will always refer back to it.

Hank Ketcham- Flattery is like chewing gum. Enjoy it, but don’t swallow it.

Perhaps women have been complying with this over the years.

Flattery is the worst and fastest way of showing our esteem – Jonathan Swift

Flattery is a form of positive energy which men use to compliment or entice women when they need an instant result from them; it’s usually used instead of enforcing them to bend to their will.

Forms of Flattery used on women by men:

  • Men flatter women with words, lies, compliments and gestures.
  • Listening attentively to a woman talk for hours, even when she sounds very boring.
  • Pretending to have turned a new leaf by acting like a saint or being over sincere.
  • Showing interests in her accomplishments even if they make no sense to him.

A woman care about actions more than words, empty juicy flattery with nothing to back it up will only get her to pay attention initially, but will not go too far with her.

No Border to Love

That cultural heritage that says I can’t love you.

Racial unrest causing calamities in our love.

Religious acts erecting agitation in the heart of our love.

Unsettling finances that deprives feeling of love.

Environmental depravation that blinds our love.

A meaningless excuse to crucify love.


Oh lord! The agony of not being able to fulfill my hearts’….

The affection! The love! The desires!

From the pit of my stomach… I ache..I thirst..


I will cross the border;  set across the ocean.

I will break down walls; reject rules just to be with you.

I will; I promise that I will resist the resilience.

I will give love life and a place to blossom.


Is there a location where love cannot meet?

Why would there be boundaries to love?

Why is there so much burden on love?

Set free the altitude in the attitude of love.

One Love! 💞





It Boils Down To Two Choices  

You make your choices and live with them; OR you change your mind and make new choices. Great post written by Itsallbuki. Read and enjoy!



There are a lot of marriages out there that aren’t thriving. Yet the bulk of the responsibility to keep it together is on the woman. Who teaches girls or rather who brain-washes girls that their responsibility is to baby their marriage and chase their husbands till they die? When they are babying another adult, who will baby them? Or are women destined to be the sad haggard one in life? Yet when these women reach out for help, the general word is, it’s your cross or lot in life and then you find that they resign to living out their days with a spouse who is flawed and making them anxious and miserable.

I have both female and male friends who like to engage in very meaningful and intimate conversations about love and life. I listen especially closely to…

Season of Green


Greener glow in green.

Thick bark, proud I look to the world,

Tree standing tall among all

Comforter! provider! flawless!

Healer of the sick, richness to the poor.


Darkness descended; forces I see not,

Shields of disappointments came forth,

I turned yellow! I fell! I dried up!

Oh! The pain; all covered in shame I was

Tears I could not shed

Death beseeched me.


Out of the corners of the earth,

A loud sound came; Fear not, ye cried,

Shaft of light glistered from the depth,

Whom I know not came forth.

Thirst I feel no more; downcast no more.

I turned up from earth to the sky again,

I stood out, greener than before,

Tiny tots I bear again! again! again!

Nay he says, the end comes for you not.

You are greener I say; always greener will be.



The Warrior Became Daring

It was a mission that looked so impossible to fulfill,

In the aftermath of the initial battle that was fought,

He could not raise his arms in warfare anymore.

He was the greatest warrior, had been, but will he always be?

The multitude stood before him, faces that looked like thunderstorm, raging with fire, children cried out to him, arms stretched out to help him to his feet. He was their only hope.

The women walked out naked, daring him to bestow upon them the freedom they desired. He stood up, intensified by the crowd urging him, nudging him, he struggled to get up, he fought, he conquered, he set them free.

He joined his lover with intensified heat, locked her up in his bruised arms, and kissed her.

Be daring to conquer

Be daring to live up to the challenge

Be daring to claim what’s your’s!

Hi everyone! In regards to the three day quote challenge put forward by It’s Digant- Something in Everything.. Here comes the quote for day 2 quote challenge.

A quote by Steve Jobs.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
