What does it take to be a lion?

>Documentary Clip<

Those who remain at the top of the food pyramid usually are the ones to take over the African land, of Kenya! These are wild cats, in which they were not destined to for tameness in a world, such as theirs! This is a life that can only be lived by the wild cats of the African plains.

A system must be set-up so that order can be maintained. Everything happens for a reason when it comes to the cycles of life. Wild cats are the most social animals in the jungle of the Savannah plans, and to keep power over everything else requires more stamina than we could ever imagine.

Male lions fight for anarchy in a pride, so that they can create a future for themselves. They will kill off the cubs and fight the male lions, just to keep the lionesses so they could have cubs of their own. Lionesses do the majority of the work, while the male is assigned to protect the pride from any sign of danger. A female lion normally does all the hunting, nursing and bonding with the rest of the pride. When it comes down to hunting, a male cannot do it unless desperate measures call for it. The mane of a male lion will make them visible to the prey, and that’ll make catching food, much harder than usual.

A male can also do a special call, just to be notified of a lioness being in heat. This is when courtship is bound to happen. These cats mate twenty-five times a day, just to make sure that the lioness is fertile and able to conceive. Some give birth to one cub, but at most they can conceive six.

There is also a leader of the Lionesses that can lead the pride if there is no male, or if they have to fight an intruder to keep the pride safe. This requires a lot of energy and experience. Those that are looking for a pride to take over are normally called nomads. Nomads are male lions that travel onto marked territory, to fight the leader of the pride, or to be accepted into the pride. This can be dangerous and life-threaten, causing broken teeth and bloody faces. The injuries are nothing small!

Lions are opportunist, which causes them to minimize risk. They are much more powerful that jaguars, tigers and cheetahs. Superior strength is something that’s required in a pride, and they won’t carry a weak lion or lioness. The pride should never be at risk, trying to carry the weakest link. When things like this happen, it’s required for the weak or injured cat to part from the pride. Sometimes the changing of certain tactics is a plus, because living on a routine can sometimes be unhealthy.

The biggest and most dangerous prey that a lion could take down is a buffalo. These are huge beasts that are worst than wilder-beast; they will kill a lion if they have to. It normally requires the whole pride to take it down, unless the male does it. The meal is split amongst the pride also, but the male has every right to take the meal and eat it all for himself.

Some people wonder why wild cats are the most socialist! They do a lot of bonding when it comes to taking care of each other’s cubs, and scent-sharing. Rubbing heads together and leaving behind a scent on territory that belongs to them normally do this. There’s a lot that goes down in one pride alone, and it’s amazing how they communicate. There are just events that must be taken to assure their own future, whether it’s fighting, making a new pride or even killing one off; just to start a new life all over again! It’s takes much to be a lion.

O, HOLY NIGHT

italian-christmas-presepe

 

 

Christmas is a very important holiday, especially for those that are Christians. This was the day that Jesus Christ was born and settled in a manger. He had been delivered to the world by his mother Mary. The Holy Spirit, had allowed Mary to conceive a baby without being touched. Her husband Joseph was frightened because, he didn’t want to shame her in front of the city. Mary was no whoremonger, she was a woman that carried herself with dignity and great faith, very obedient and special.

Jesus had been under the Will of God, to come to save the people of this world. There we were blessed with a gift! Think about it, you can’t get anyone better than Christ! This baby was to be named the KING of all KINGS, and the LORD of all LORDS!! The three kings at the time were out to kill Jesus, because they knew that Christ was there to reign forever. To make a long story short, Jesus became the hero of the people. He died on the cross for us, so that we could live again.

This man was powerful and merciful in all his ways, Healing, preaching, teaching, delivering people, and correcting those that had to be corrected. For those that have a very close relationship with Christ, you’re more than blessed. Someone like that isn’t made by accident and given to the the people out of mistake! Christ is the key to the second world, after the coming of his day! God did us all a favor out of love, and for someone that has that much love for us ignorant people, that should tell you how valued you are! I was brought with a price, and I’m happy that I gave my life to the one, who gave me life.

 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

The power of Verbal Fate

 

 

 

You can do one of two things when it comes to verbally speaking to someone. The way you talk to someone determines many things. They will either look at you in a discomforting way, or they’ll accept you for your kind words. I’m sure everyone has been in a situation, where you’ve had people talk to you both ways. You can make or break a person, but how they react determines if you’ll get the best of them.

Now, I’m not the type to allow someone to disrespect me. I’ve been told time after time, to never allow someone to come off as rude and arrogant towards me. I don’t need to be lectured on that, because I do admit to having anger problems. I can control my anger, but I’m the one that waits until you push me off the edge. Give me enough of the push and I’ll take advantage of the opportunity.

That doesn’t mean I’m bipolar, or the person next to me is. People like to mess with others for the satisfactory of their own esteem. I care about everyone, but when it comes to using words — It’s either peace or war! The best I could tell you is, don’t allow someone to bully you. When you don’t defend yourself, you give the world an opportunity to make you mentally suffer. That’s worst than a physical weapon stabbing at your organs.

verbal attack has the power to take life away from a person, only if it’s negativity. People are sensitive or may take thing to the heart. Than there are those (me) that speak life and positivity into a person’s life. I’ve been through much where I’ve been weak minded enough to allow a person to take my dreams away.

Today I changed that, because I realize that I’m only a human that deserves to live. I’ve never compromised anything of mines, to settle for the belittling of myself by another person. Make a difference by speaking positive to people, because there are people out there watching!

Are you really you?

 

Don’t let someone tell you who you are. The most important thing is that you know whom it is that you are!! So here’s a question for the world:

 

“If someone told you that you didn’t know who you were, what would you tell them?”

This is me!!

I’m not doing this for you:

My name is Kenyona Rashana Candice Parlor. I’m a christian that believes in God, and the main root of it all is Love. I’m the girl that loves herself enough to never lower her standards for someone else. I believe in myself and push myself to make the impossible happen. I love myself because, I value who I am as a person. I have respect for myself and I carry myself with grace and as a young role model to other females. I’m my own person, and I have a personality customized to my fitting. I laugh, smile, cry, hurt and I can feel. My heart is huge and I use it to the extent of it’s full potential.
I don’t carry baggage into other relationships, but I have been through a lot to never forget the things that built my muscle. I’m a positive person and I find myself supporting others w/o the favor of asking for anything from anyone. I loved hard, and I love unconditionally. There’s been many mistakes that I’ve made in the past and some that’ll be made in the future. That’s part of being human.
I know that there’s someone that I want more than ever. I’m not afraid to make mistakes in front of him, but I am scared that he won’t accept what it is that I have to offer. Love does start at home, and for the fact that not only did I receive it from both parents and my siblings, I loved and will always love me, too. Sometimes I find myself getting 5 steps ahead of my brain, but that’s normal for someone with big dreams. There are times when I need to be brought back down to earth, because some things that I may see looks fogging. Everyday I’m working at a full time job of trying to better myself. I don’t mind trying to make things right with myself on behalf of someone that I love, but most of the things I do is for me.
I admit, I’m stubborn and I don’t want to ask for help when it’s needed. I only do it because I was raised by a single mother that gave me every hope in the world. She provided every christmas, she attended every school play, she put me through school, and she gave me something that I couldn’t have experienced any better with anyone else. I thank God for her LOVE because it was well needed, but at the same time I grew up.
Everyone is taught differently how to be independent. I was specifically taught that depending on others wouldn’t get me anywhere. Calling someone for help would be a waste of time, because I had to get what I wanted through any kind of way I could. I was late for an exam? Mama stopped taking me and made me walk, I got stranded in the middle of nowhere on the bus one day, and I was told to call mama because she’d come get me. She offered her help before hand, but when I was stranded she told me to find a way home in the rain. This is why I hesitate to ask for help, because of situations such as that.
I was always compared to other people’s children. How come Jasmine was better than Kenyona or Zavion was more intelligent than me? I learned to let go and love myself, alone after while. I never mastered love because I never found my significant other. I love me till death and I’ve learned self value. Could I stop worrying for a while? Yes! Is it okay to ask for help? Yes! Have I mastered self love? Yes! Have I mastered loving someone else? No, because I haven’t found him.
I love everybody and this is a fact! Actions do speak louder than words, but sometimes words can become the loudest actions. I’ve been thrown away, cheated on, talked about, misunderstood, brought down — but I never stopped loving each and every person that hurt me. My heart is too big to be told differently, and many people that has watched me on my knees crying and praying can say that this is true. God has made me and molded me into someone beautiful. I never had that “I don’t care” attitude, because no matter what I’ll always care. It would be nice to have someone save the hero sometimes, too.
I have no excuses or anything to hide. I’m human and there’s nothing to justify the reason as to why I couldn’t do things better. I’m starting today and this time I’ll learn to ask for help from those that really are my God-given friends. I’m Kenyona and this is me!!

Is it normal to outgrow the church you attended all your life?

It’s been about nineteen years, since I’ve been alive upon the face of the earth. First, I have to give God the honor and the glory! I thank Christ for dying on the cross for my sins, and for him being so understanding and loving. There are many things that God will always impart in you, and offer you that the church may not offer. God is always bigger than our problems, but there’s something that has been heavy on my heart for a few years now. Forgive me if I hurt feelings, but the truth must be spoken.

Our parents placed us in the church as kids, we attended every sunday and made sure we stayed for second service, also. I know some of you have that pet peeve, where you dislike when the pastor is just babbling and not saying something very interesting. One of my pet peeves, were when I’d hear the same old message for seven sundays straight. I didn’t hate it, but I thought I could be learning something new. I’m a firm believer in Christ, but I like to listen to a pastor that knows what he’s talking about.

Some churches have servants that takes, titles to their heads but I’m not with that at all. Personally, I have adjusted to how bishop T.D Jakes has been preaching. I love how his style of preaching has such a positive effect on me. It’s the fact that when he preaches, he uses the bible stories and gets his point across using it. That is something interesting to me, also for the fact that I can relate to what it is that I’m going through. It’s one thing to go to church and get a word, and not learn anything, but it’s also another thing to go to church and learn something that you can apply to your life.

 

 

 

A church that has to ask for 50 offerings in one sunday is ridiculously crazy. I only say this because there are two main offerings that belongs to God. There’s TITHES (that’s what we owe, 10%) and there’s the regular offering(determines how much you want to give). When a pastor preaches about something you already know, and keeps asking for 10 million offerings — That’s what drives the disciples away.

When you get older, it’s also okay to outgrow your home church because maybe you’re looking for something that suites you more. Now, I’m not saying that you should turn on your church home and forget where you came from. It’s important to always remember where you came from. You wouldn’t have been that person you were today w/o the help of your church home. Sometimes your church home can also turn on you and do things differently. I’ve seen churches that were out of order and I leave that in god’s hands, because I’m no one to judge that!! The purpose of having a church is for the pastor to build relationships with the disciples, and to lead the flock. You can’t lead the flock and not know what’s going on with them, or why you’re losing members.

 

When you find another church that best suites your praise and worship for God, it’s better that you do that — rather than sitting in the same old place, not feeling sincere about your worship. I will forever believe in God, but right now I’m seeking another church that has what I’ve been looking for. Things change and God won’t get mad at you for trying to find a more suitable way to worship and serve him. You want a church that works as a team with not just the fellowshiping, but the congregation feels strongly positive about where they are.

For Without A Plan The People Perish!!

 

 

 

I was sitting in my room writing out the vision that I saw for myself. There was a lot that I wanted to make happen for me and my friends. It’s hard when you are constantly overwhelmed with work and things. That shouldn’t be an excuse as to why we can’t map out a vision and make something good happen for the future. I wanted a bookstore, adult lounge, publishing company, and magazine company all built in one component. No one said it’s going to be easy to get, but that’s why I’m working this hard now for the promise of a better tomorrow. I wish that it all came easy sometimes, but if I got it all easy why would we want what it is that we’re asking for? The purpose is to make a dream happen, without having everything handed over to you. I want to be able to tell my children that I had to work my ass off so that they could get the same things that I have. Knowing the principal of life is very crucial and I’m doing everything I can, to make life just a bit easier than it was yesterday!
