I remember the first time I picked up this book from Barnes& Nobles. I have to say that from me reading just half of it, I accomplished a lot. I read about 98 pages of the book and I would recommend it to anyone that’s interested in doing things step by step. Jack Canfield and Kent Healy wrote the book. For those of you that don’t know, Jack was the original author of ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’. This book walks you into a door that leads to many doors of opportunity. This is about how to get from where you are to where you want to be! Before I get started in the next blog with this series, I want to say I hope everyone enjoys this. Make sure you have a pen and memo pad with you, so that you can take notes!!!
Remember to be safe and make sure that you don’t go outside. I pray that those who have been left behind in long beach stay safe and uses their brain. The best way to get what you need is to prepare and package it all, right now. This time we might not want to play with Sandy, because she just might be something we don’t want to play with. Make sure you help out others that are seeking help, because they’re lost. Keep everyone calm and do something in the house that’ll distract your mental state of being.
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!
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.

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!
CHAPTER TWO ….
CHAPTER THREE ….
****Make sure you make the story your own, and keep the readers interested! May the best submission win!! ********
Okay so my birthday is approximately in 3 days and I’m excited. I’ll be 19 years of age, but I hate one specific thing about each year. The ‘happy birthday’ song. I feel that it’s depressing and sometimes, it gets on my nerves and makes me want to cry. To me it reminds me of all the nursery rhymes that had a creepy meaning to it. The way the melody of the song happens to be played out, it freaks me out. I agreed to not having a cake this year for my birthday dinner, only because the song freaks me out and I feel like no one understands the madness of the song. Am I a creep for this?
I’ve been taking into account lately, about the arguments over love or marriage. I notice how many people say, you don’t need the rings or a signed document stating that you love your partner. Others feel that the rings and the document needs to be there, just to prove that you love the person. Personally, I think the rings and documents should be there because it has a full-on meaning. You can’t claim to love your partner without showing it through an act.
That’s like a man telling a woman he’s been with for eight years, that he’s not going to pop the question. He feels that the ring isn’t relevant and that it doesn’t say much. Well, that’s a lie because it does mean something. It’s important that whomever chooses to get married does it for the right reasons. You can’t possibly want to just marry someone for a month and just lose the ring like Kim Kardashian. That’s very childish, it comes to show not just the world but God that you could never take marriage seriously. I wouldn’t blame her for getting a divorce anyway, because she wasn’t ready at all. She’s all over the place and is now trying to get in where she fits in. That’s not cool or feminine at all!
About almost all of America gets tired of being single, or just dating. Eventually they fall under the spell of something or someone and marries the person. It’s not that someone’s money caught their love, or maybe it is. The point being is that everyone wants to marry and have kids when they’re good and ready. We don’t want to over populate, but we don’t want to under populate either. The ring signifies something crucial and important. I don’t mind sharing that with you, maybe this can help you understand why the rings and documents are so very important. There are married men that cheat, but there are also good men out there, also.
The purpose of the vows and the rings, are to bring the people together. When you join unions, you’re no longer two different people. You become one under the body of Christ, which calls for working as a team and devoting much of your time to it. The vows that says,’ until death do us part’ was meant to keep the two people together. They have to work through their problems, work through their happiness and work through their struggle together. Also, the ring is to ensure other beings amongst you that, you’re married and found what you’ve been looking for. You can’t snoop around, trying to find someone else to fonder with and you’re wearing those vows around your finger.
The meeting of a union is also, a covenant to God that MUST NOT be broken. The only way you can undo what you did, is by divorcing the person if that’s what you feel. The purpose of marriage was never intended for divorcing your spouse. It was meant to keep you both together and to work things out. Some people want their first wedding to be their last wedding, and that means no marrying other people again. You have faithful women and men, that will be willing to crusade with you and make sure that you remain under one system. You can’t operate by being dictated or controlled by someone that’s trying to give you advice, and their marriage didn’t even last.
Normally, a promise comes with marriage and that’s a kid or 6 dozen. Everyone wants children because they feel that it will bring joy and happiness to them. A baby will do those things but, they won’t fulfill that wish for all the wrong reasons. You don’t want to marry just so you can get the kid and leave your wife or vice versa. A child is meant to be born when everything around not just them, but you and your spouse is very stable. A stable environment and what gives you the most joyous feeling and experience out of just having a baby and being married. You don’t have to feel like you’re going to be tied down, because a married is not meant for “tying someone down” either. Marriage is about forming something so strong, and bonding things that no one can attempt to break. You want a foundation that will build empires and nations for decades to come, so that your children and your children’s children, can understand what it means to make a covenant to God.
Finally, when a man marries a woman, he’s expected to do things that a man does. He holds the key to not just the bank accounts or the house, he provides for his family so that they won’t ever have to go hungry in a million years from now. That’s the power of marriage when two unions are joined together to provide for their offspring, and to keep each other happy. This is why a lot of us women want to get married.
It’s been four years already and BARACK OBAMA, has served this country well. I’m hoping that he serves again, and that everyone votes for him. He knows what he’s doing and the truth behind politics. I admire the fact that he looks out for the middle class, to make sure that we don’t go “broke”. I don’t understand why Mitt Romney wants to steal from the middle class, knowing that it could cause the economy to go into something beyond a depression. I don’t know why rich people let dumb things go to their heads, like for example. Stacey Dash, talking about how Mitt Romney spoke to her and it made her realize. My question is what did it make you realize? She couldn’t answer it, she only felt that way because she didn’t want to pay taxes and help build new roads and such. I remember watching her interview over the television and they were bringing up people’s thoughts on her decision for whom she would vote for. Many told her she could jump off a cliff and kill herself, and others called her a dumb blonde. She claimed she didn’t feel any kind of way about it, but I know she did. Beyonce and Jay-z helped him raise money for a campaign and to get everyone to vote for OBAMA. I love how his family is very supportive of him and they see how hard he works. There are so many haters marching around here with sad faces. I just want to say that y’all need to think smart and vote for Obama. Mitt Romney has no experience in presidential ethnic background. This is exactly why I feel sorry for Boston, Massachusetts.
