The Power of Eyes

Most birds and mammals are intimidated when someone stares at them. When lemurs are in danger, they stare at their enemy with their big, round eyes trying to intimidate it. Generally amongst mammals, a subordinate individual will avoid looking the dominant individual in the eyes. This is valid from rats to carnivores (like tigers, wolves, dogs) and primates (from monkeys to gorillas), because staring is a means of defying, a challenge to fight.

For the past 6 weeks, I have been intimidated by the eyes of a large task I have been asked to do. I have worried, had sleepless nights and anxieties for quite some time.

Now that I am less than 48 hours away from fulfilling this responsibility, it's time for the stare of intimidation to come from me.

BAM!! How's that for intimidation! Oh yeah, baby! I am coming at ya at full force! This is the moment I have been preparing for and I am ready!


No, I am ready! Ready to give it my all!

And Saraphina's got my back!

Watch out! She doesn't play fair!

I am sooooo ready for this!

I am now banning myself from the computer for the next 48 hours. I need to finish preparing and making sure I give my heart and soul and my full 100% to these women I love.

Have a wonderful weekend!
