I woke up a little late this morning, but because I was reading a short story from the ASFmag. The title was called Nutcracker by Tia Clark. I'm not even sure how old the writer is, but she did a hell of a good job. Though the story caught me by surprise, because of a few cuss words and nasty sexual terms that were used. I guess you can be surprised at what goes on at work, because there are co-workers who will sexually harass you for the fun of it. One girl, Shelly was very quiet, shy, and innocent so she never got humped by the garbage compactor at work. She wanted to know why ....I kind of find it funny, because why would you want to get dry humped by your male co-worker? I don't think you need to change to get noticed by someone. Sometimes being quiet and shy is the coolest! You don't want to send the wrong messages, Haha! Good Morning.
Everyone is planted upon the face of this Earth with a purpose. You need to find what you're here for and start making things happen for yourself. Don't wait on your best friend to start chasing your dreams, you need to start now! When times get hard and you feel like you're ready to give up; don't! Learn to press in and sincerely follow your heart. Your dreams will come true, it's all about believing in yourself and working hard enough to see results. You may not become this writer, welder, musician, producer, millionaire overnight but things like this takes time and processes. When is the last time you did some for real research for yourself, and submitted some of your craft to a company or gallery to be displayed? What are you working so hard to become? Let's share =).
I'm working on my memoir to say the least, and I feel happy, sad, excited, nervous, and all of those mixed emotions. It's hard to write your own life story in a book, and come from a place of nothingness. For about six years and a half now, I've had a story worth telling but always feared what others would think about me. I guess things will keep happening to me until I speak on the things that has haunted me from day one. I don't have too many friends but the ones I do have counted on me for leadership and example...I messed that up. Just like anyone else I'm human but it's only natural to live and to learn. This is going to be a challenge to work on, because it's all based on a true story and I deserve to breakdown certain things here and there to share with the people.
Being passionate about something is a gift, and when you have so much ambition and drive don't take that for granted. In my newest project (novel) I'm working on a story that gives the audience a full-on effect of who I am as a person of flaw. You get to see two sides of me in the book: The perfect side and the not so perfect side. I have grown and learned a lot about myself personally, and I can always improve.
To me life is so thin and can slip from anyone's hand in a second. As a young adult there are a lot of up's and down's in this error, but that's just this generation period. I mean life can really beat you down and humble you enough, to make you see that you're not too proud or flawless for anything to happen to you, also. I remember when I used to look at young pregnant girls and just say, "Wow....that's a shame". You can't really judge someone in their situation, because everybody goes through stuff -just differently. I almost lost my faith in all of this but for some reason that's the only thing that never wavered.
I'd like to think that I'm independent enough to do as I please, but I'm sure there are many others who can relate to a similar story! It may not have a happy ending, or maybe it just might but whatever the case ....I'm here going through it all and I'm still pressing. I don't blame nobody but myself, this time.
This is a memoir I'm working on about my own life. It's about a girl who went through hell to find her way back to God. From starting out with having all that she needed to losing everything and learning the importance of humility and selflessness. TREASURE BOX SECRETS: A MEMOIR is for those who understand that even the most baring challenges are caused by God for a reason. Maybe it's not always about following dreams or desiring to be a passionate writer, just the simplicity of being given a life that's more precious than oneself. Everyone has a TREASURE BOX of SECRETS with many memories, issues, favors, and hurt locked away. There has to come a point in life when you strip yourself naked from the things that covers you, in bondage. It takes a lot of WORK to be molded into the person you're called to be! Does the Molding process hurt? ..... Read below and find out!
It seems that when it comes time to letting the cat out of the bag, it's a little harder to expose than to hide. I wasn't sure how I was going to do this memoir, because I started out with so many different ideas. Maybe in the future I'll have two memoirs, but right now I need to focus on what's bothering me the most. I do feel like I've been in the 'shop' and God is just molding me. With Him being the potter and me, the clay it does hurt. I'm not broken but just a little bent and maybe God isn't trying to hurt me, but help me! There's just so much to learn in life, and I have to take it one day at a time. I wasn't always the girl who lost everything and was baffled. I grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, and I never appreciated or realized the real gift of humility and selflessness. Things happen and you get stripped away of the things you hide, so that everything can be exposed for a better result outcomes. THERE IS A GOD OUT THERE...

I want to wish all of the veterans a Happy Memorial Day. Thank you for fighting to keep our country safe. There are so many people who'd rather eat the greed of the country, but thank you for protecting us! You will never know how much it means to people like me! Also, Happy Memorial Day to my father Kenyon B. Parlor. I love you xoxoxo.
Well, I have a lot to do and I'm just relaxing. I need to outline and write but Lord knows, it's beautifully killing me =).
I know I haven't been on this www.sett.com site to blog lately! I've been great but working on better things, which involves my career and a path to success for myself. I would be lying if I said it isn't hard, but there has been some good in it for me! I still have a little work to do on it, but I'm satisfied with it. I'm even thinking about adding a blog to my website, but I would like to increase the traffic and visitors! I won't be on my blog very much, but I will make it my business to try and stop by every once in a while to vent or something, due to the fact that my website is strictly kept professional! Here is the web address, http://www.authorkenyonaparlor.com please invite friends and share the website on your blog! It's especially for readers and writers!
I remember about five years ago, I discovered something unique about myself. Having been blessed with four talents, one more was added onto the list. I attended an all art school for entertainers, and I was packing with the singing, modeling, dancing, and acting until I uncovered the greatest gift I didn't know I possessed. Writing was the ultimate gift that I was blessed with, after discovering that after a huge opportunity had come along for me in the acting world, there was just something that I loved a little more. You ever did something crazy just to prove a point? Yep... that's me all the way! Who would've known that I'd turn down the opportunity of being on Disney Channel just to pursue a career in writing?
I've written a drama-romance novel called Sword Of Love; A Parisian Love, and that was the first serious piece I'd ever done. My mother couldn't believe that I had written something so well, in fact she thought I "borrowed" someone else's idea. I could birth so much creation that it would benefit me mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. How many great writers do you know that will stop what they're doing to personally engage with their audience? Actually, NOT MANY! Everyone likes a story with a little imagination and color, something perhaps like Alice In Wonderland .... well consider me the dancing clown when it comes to inking up everything that I see. I'd like to refer to myself as The Mad Ink3r (one who is insane for creative empowerment).
I have all these gifts but I only care to share ONE with the world. Welcome to my world of insanity and Ink, a place where it's guaranteed you'll have something to read and talk about. Now, how 'bout them Mad Ink3rs? Are there any other writers in the house?
If you enjoy drama-romance (Parisian style) please purchase yourself a copy of my book. =)
What are some of your ultimate goals? Do you have something that you're passionate about other than that retail job? ....I want to know what your dreams are!
I used to doubt myself, a lot. I didn't think anything was possible, because I never thought with a positive mindset. Now, I've come a long way to realize what habits get old and what reasonings are pointless (to justify a bad habit). My ambition always came from within but I never had someone to inspire or encourage me to want to do better. Maybe that's where a lot of people lose courage and lack inspiration, but when you learn to move on your own things get a little easier. Even sharing dreams can be nice sometimes but not everyone chases the same road that I do. It took me a while to understand that, but I got it! The harder you try to follow your dreams for all the wrong reasons, the more empty life is. There's some food for thought....
