The gift of being different and unique!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Besides the fact of having different fingerprints, I think we all are different. When I mean different, I’m not talking about swag or anything such. I’m talking about personality. One that is blessed to know that they’re different says a lot about the person. If we were all the same this world wouldn’t be boring, it’d be very unoriginal. What I like about my friends are the special features they offer to the world. One person can be outspoken, while another one just watches and observes everything around them. Another one can be in their own world, but at the same time the life of the party. The circle is small but it’s worth it. The best results sometimes is that when you limit yourself to who you hang around, things can get better than they were yesterday.

For example, I met someone this year and his name is JT (the conceited one in orange w/ fitted on). He’s amazing and I’m not saying that because I met him this year, it’s the fact of having someone that can understand you. All of my friends are different but they all have a purpose and a plan. We all want something from life but it’s either you go get it, or you just fail. The mentality we all share, it that “don’t give up” mentality. To throw in the towel like most would be something overrated. How many times can you fight for something and give up, until things don’t go your way?

Jt’s personality is custom made and made right for him. Him and I aren’t the same people but maybe there’s something we all have in common. He’s funny, smart and outgoing. Eric (The cute white boy), he’s amazing because he knows how to create something humorous in the midst of a troubling situation. He’s my little brother and I love all my friends. Sidney (the one in leather black coat) he’s hilarious but inquisitive at the same time. He likes playing music, but he works very hard at being independent for someone that’s so young. There’s a lot of features that they all have that can be mixed in with what I have.

Tasha Renee, the one kissing my cheek. She is funny, loud and very down to earth but why would I stop her from being herself. There’s always something positive about another person that can also bring out the best in you. There’s a lot she can do when she believes in herself, and I believe in her enough o make things happen. She laughs a lot and Im glad she does because she makes things possible for me. I can laugh at anything I want, just because she does it. Wrenggor, the built looking one in the black shirt, he does everything I do. He sings, worships and is always in a world of his own. I love how he’s very at ease and open to hearing the problems of his friends. He’s very selfless and that’s where him and I tie that rope. Shameeka, the one I’m kneeling next to — She’s the sweetest person I know. She can be real with you when she wants, but I’ve grown up with her so we’ve come a long way. She has so much potential, but that’s the principal of being different from one another. I say if your circle isn’t helping you achieve much from life, you need to re-evaluate who’s in it. Most of all if it’s not the circle, than maybe it’s you!!! I’VE BEEN BLESSED WITH THE BEST OF FRIENDS AND I THANK GOD ❤

 

 

 

 

 

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!

IT’S ON THE PERSON THAT CARRIES THE WEIGHT OF THE PEDESTAL, RIGHT?

Have you ever felt like you’ve been placed on that pedestal? Or what about everything having to be perfect? No, wait– What happens when you fall off?

 

I know there’s a lot of questions floating around pertaining to this topic. I can relate to this in so many ways. For me it started at a young age, and when I say young — I don’t mean around the age of twelve. I remember there was so much being expected of me and I would always give people what they wanted. I stopped caring about myself years ago, but as I got older things began to change and cards were beginning to turn.

Sometimes I find it hard to understand, how is it that people look up to me and don’t expect me to make a mistake? I mean, everyone is standing so close to the pedestal looking at every move you make. It’s agonizing and it’s annoying because, they don’t let you breathe. The first move you want to make –you’re not really sure that you want to make that move. The moment of placement, is like all privileges and opportunities have been stripped of you.

The family looks at you as the girl/boy that’s going on an adventure of success. Yes, maybe I’d expect that from myself to but how can we learn if the mistakes aren’t as surplus as the clean slate? We aren’t perfect but we try to fix ourselves up for the satisfactory of other people’s inventory for their needs. That’s actually no way to live, especially because we’re living the dream of someone else and not ourselves.

I thought it was okay to be human and to just bask in my own mistakes. The fact that the pedestal is clean and all shiny, means that your preferences had to match up with it. I think not! I’m placed on a pedestal because I think, act, live and see things differently. Everyone is different but yet only few will stand out, it’s like you trying to be like everybody else in town.

 

 

 

I was made to stick out and I embraced that. Now what happens if you become overly confident in yourself? You can become too confident that you disappoint yourself and  others around you. No one is telling you to have a low self esteem, they’re just saying that you need to pick it up –where it falls at. The weight of the world is on your shoulders, but who’s fault is that? To be honest it’s yours! Why? Think about it for a second …

We want to help everyone out so bad, and we see many people suffering so we want to indulge in their cup; instead of our own. That’s what we get, because as we become older we learn that our own problems were strictly built and designed for us. Things are freshly custom made and no one can fit into your problem the way you can. The best advice is to stop trying to live an error-free life and just make mistakes already. The more mistakes we make, the better –only because we now know which ways we shouldn’t go.

The power of Voting!!

 

This song is copyrighted by Eric Joseph the maker of the song. I wanted to let you all know that Obama has been through a lot. Our country has accomplished a lot, so make sure you keep Obama in office. Mitt Romney is just a somebody that just wants fame and exposure. The MAIN POINT, is that you vote for Obama and make sure we keep our country safe and active.

A Sweet Thank You <3

 

I just want to say thank you too all my fans, supporters, family, and friends. It means a lot that you thought of me!!!

Is blogging Lucrative?

A lot of people are asking questions about blogging. Is it lucrative? Is the money surplus? Well, YES!! In order for it to work you have to be persistent and patient about it. A niche blog focuses on one very specific topic and it’s this type of blog that aligns well with blog monetization methods such as contextual advertising and affiliate marketing. Not all blog topics are going to bring in strong earnings, for various reasons. So how do you pick a niche blog topic that’s apt to be lucrative?

There are 6 steps to making this work:

{ONE} = Create a list of interests, topics that you would be willing to write about on a regular basis.

{TWO} = You will need a topic that has potential for 100 or more blog entries about various elements or aspects of that topic. Look at the list that you created in Step 1 and cross off any topics that would not allow for 100 or more blog entries.

{THREE} = Consider affiliate marketing potential. Bloggers can earn significant revenue from affiliate marketing, but the niche blog topic must align well with affiliate marketing. Will a particular topic lend itself to recommendations for products or book sales? If not, then that topic should be crossed off the list, as affiliate marketing is a primary source of revenue for niche bloggers.

{FOUR} = Eliminate any niche blogging topics associated with “stop words” or “poison words” that might interfere with contextual marketing programs like Google AdWords. Keywords related to sex, gambling and crimes are frequently labeled as “stop words” or “poison words,” which result in all Google AdWords advertisements  getting pulled from that particular web page.

{FIVE} = Determine search volume and cost per click (CPC) for keywords associated with the topics that remain on the list. Using the Google Keyword Tool or a similar website, enter keyword terms associated with a particular niche blogging topic. You want a topic with at least five primary keywords that have a search volume of more than 20,000 per month. Also be sure to select “Show Avg. Estimated CPC” from the drop-down menu to view CPC. The CPC determines how much you can earn per ad click. The higher the CPC, the better the earning potential for a particular niche blogging topic.

{SIX} = Select a niche blogging topic from those remaining on the list and start blogging.

Learn the basics of SEO (search engine optimization) to maximize page views and earning potential. When purchasing a niche blog domain name, select a name that contains keywords relating to your blog topic. Blog regularly–at least three times per week. Fresh material encourages repeat visitors.

 

 

Another Year Older — It’s Part of Growing Up!!

I was awakened by a phone call at 12:00 a.m. from someone that I planned on settling for. He wished me a happy birthday and said a few things to help make my day better. After, we got off the phone I hung up and tried to focus on the positive side of things. I had a loss of sleep, because some of the screaming that came from the intercom machines in my room, and in the basement.

Finally, I closed my eyes and saw something really crazy. I was getting laid in my dreams, but what made it funny was that I woke up laughing. I’ve grown-up and matured over the last 19 years, and there a lot that I’ve learned. I’m one of the most coolest people you would know. My personality is very outgoing and down to earth. I know how to laugh, joke and be serious when it’s time.

The best thing that’s ever happened to me, was God allowing me to see another year. There’s a lot going on and I’ve accomplished a lot. Especially, getting my first book published in January 2013, and doing a touring book signing. I try to keep everyone happy and getting into the enjoyment of reading my work, and some of the blog posted. I’m human just like everyone else, and I’m deciding to feel, and be like myself.

 

 

I’m young, but there’s a lot that I have to offer. I’ve been blessed with so much and I don’t regret having the talent that I do. There are so many ways to be creative and I’m doing it right now. As we grow older, we listen out for the things in our surroundings and become more aware of certain things. Life isn’t the easiest gift given to us, but we make the most of it by living like it’s our last day.

I wasn’t looking for anything on this beautiful day. I just needed life, and something to let me know that God was giving me another chance at life. There’s a lot that I want from life, and that includes a man that loves me, and a family. I’m not dumb but I know what I can handle and what I can not. I’m different from other females, because I carry myself with grace and elegance. I’m learning about myself everyday, and I’m doing something great. I have dreams and achievements, and I’m going to get the majority of them all achieved before I turn twenty-five. I’ve been working hard, so since today is my birthday — I’m relaxing and taking it easy.

Below I have an example of my own LE PROMESSE (The promise). Don’t copy nor take any of the characters or anything that  has its’ content. The book is currently being worked on now, and has been copyrighted for future references.

 

EXAMPLE:

 

Chapter One

       I know not a lot of people my age tend to do the things I do. This is a big world and sometimes, we get lost in it. I found my purpose when I was awakened by the phases of life. I’m a person of love, but I have to compare myself to a butterfly. Like something so small, I go through many different stages before I become mature.

There’s this room that I’m writing from. It represents something about myself, and I hope that the world can see the same exact things that I do. Sometimes I feel like we need to be alone with ourselves, to get the full understanding of what we want out of life.

As I lie down on this queen-sized bed, I’m writing a story without paper and pen. I thought that maybe if I went away to a far away angelic place to write this, than everyone would have a better understanding of who I am, as a person. I chose to lay my body to rest, in this all white beachfront house that stands facing the water.

There’s a pure white queen-sized bed and a white and silver lamp mounted to the wall. Everything is white except for the green plant that sits vertical of the bed, in a tall white vase. There’s a green, gray and white throw rug on top of the white carpet. A navy green and black granite table is placed against the wall, across from the bed. There’s this white chair placed in front of the table with golden emblazon on its sides.

This is Kenyona R.C. Parlor, not the physical being speaking to the world; but the spiritual being. People often mistake me for the physical things they see, but that has to be corrected. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with laying down my fleshy display. There’s a purpose and a reason for everything that is performed. Why can’t we just accept people as they really are? You’re physicality is what allows you to do certain things that your spirituality, doesn’t allow. Most of the times we want to see what we can feel, instead of feeling what it is that we cannot see.

This human race is complex to the point of malfunctions, especially when it comes to trying to fathom. We confuse our thoughts with our feelings, and our feelings with our thoughts. My point is that we’re backwards and don’t know how to move forward. We make things complicated but yet we all request for the best.

There’s a promise to someone out there, for someone that can love me without going for the physical things. I know it’s a challenge to all mankind when you have to define the inner side of a person, but things will work out for the best. It’s like going on a crusade to make it to the promise land, without any marks or blemishes.

I don’t have to ask what love is, because I know what it defines. I don’t confuse lust and love with one another. There’s a sacred part of me that is promised to a prince of a far away place. I’m not fearful of who the person is, but if he’s able to take on few challenges. A man goes through things, but he should never run when a challenge calls him out.

There’s something so beautiful around me, but why would I destroy it? I’m looking beyond my what my eyes are showing me. My heart has a mind and eyes of its own; I’m following the path of justification for what’s right. I need someone that has their own and knows how to grow up when it’s time to do so. I would never disappoint myself, settling for a business talk isn’t what I’m searching for. I’d prefer to cut right to the chase and get on with my life, family, and this promise!

The Power of Music

 

I don’t listen to rap much these days because it doesn’t have much meaning to it. R&B is okay but now-a-days I prefer soft piano music. I think it’s the tranquility of it that allows you to relax, and just be at peace. Normally, when I’m writing books or trying to focus on a scene I pull this kind of music up, and I listen to it. This has a meaning to it, and it’s very mind catching. Sometimes when I hear music like this, I just lie in bed and relax.

 

Most of the inspiration I get in writing, and with staying humble is listening to this kind of music. Things come a little easier, and it feels like everything that was once rushed, has slowed down. It’s so much of the story behind the music, instead of having lyrics all the time. This is that type of music you can listen to in the morning, and no one can tell you to turn it off. A music, something made for all hours of the day. Classic music is beautiful too, but I’d flow more with this.

 

There’s something about music that keeps everyone grounded. It’s like the world is all chaotic, but as soon as something meaningful comes on, the world than is at peace. It’s a way of bringing people of all color and race together. The fact of having a lot in common with each other, music is what brought us to the same arena. Sad to say we still have racist people in the world, but those  that depends on music to keep us together, has been one step closer to a better world. There’s a lot going on, and people are killing each other, but music has this power to bring peace.

If music was a holiday, I guess it would be celebrated all throughout the year. There would be BB-Q’s and parties all the time. The different cultures of music is what makes everything so diverse. No one wants to hear the same things, but we do want to hear music. I don’t consider today’s music, real music because it’s a lot of meaningless nonsense. Artist just rap or sing, just to sing. Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Jill scott, India Arie and countless others; they gave music the real definition of power. There’s so much power in words, but if you listen to some of the lyrics from back in the day, everything had a meaning. I know I have to be correct!
