Nothing Lasts

“I pray to God
To stop these thoughts
It works for me
Can’t you see
I know that I’m better
I’m writing this letter
To my past self
Sitting on the shelf

Nothing lasts
It’s for the best
I won’t stay here
I won’t stay there
‘Cause now I’m happy
For You have changed me
I am so thankful
No longer painful”
~ Bedroom – Nothing Lasts

A Journey

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are the architects of our own lives. It’s up to us to look around at the things that bring us joy. to stop always focusing on the finish line, and start looking at the journey. This applies to people, places, and things. Whether rich or poor, we have a say in some of these things and whenever we have that power, we should take advantage of it. For instance, the people in our lives, our place in life, the things we own….all of these things we surround ourselves with are interchangeable. Perhaps not instantly, but these changes are as much a part of our journey as anything else. There’s no where easier to make these changes than in Second Life, so if  you’re not happy with your current situation, do what you need to do to change it. No sense tormenting yourself for the entire journey or the destination won’t be worth getting to at all.

Create Fantasy

“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy,” – Juan Montoya

This is exactly how I feel about decorating. I absolutely love decorating, especially in Second Life. I will say that listing everything in a decor blog can be a bit tedious, but the end result is always so satisfying and I find the process to be almost like meditation.
In the middle of writing this, I was delivered some rather alarming news in Second Life and found out that I have to speak with my real life ex in a couple of hours. So, my train of thought is lost, but by all means, check out the scene and all the amazing creations listed below. Happy Shopping!♥

Her Night Before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas
all the presents were wrapped
She laid her head down,
for a five minute nap…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Ok, that’s my Christmas poem, you’re welcome!

Most of you know that I’m not particularly enjoying the holiday season this year. In fact, this year I kinda hate it. However, that does not mean I can’t be happy for those that are loving it. So, to all my readers, friends, and anyone else that stumbles across these words. I hope that your life is filled with all the love & laughter you deserve. ♥

Blanket and Magnet

It’a another Challenge to Challenge post!! First off, I have to fangirl just a bit. Exis actually gave me this challenge and I’m a huge fan of her work. If you’re not familiar with her, you must check her out! So, she gave me blanket and magnet, which worked out perfectly for this post, because of the dogs. Let the short story unfold…

She didn’t have children in the traditonal sense, but she had two beautiful female huskies that she referred to as her dogters. Blanket and Magnet were named for their behavior, as Blanket had dragged around some type of covering since she was brought home. She had quickly discovered how to cover herself with it, too. Magnet followed Blanket every where and always had to be touching Blanket or the blanket she used to cover herself. This was to be their first Christmas as adult dogs and though Sady was quite sure that her furry children had no understanding of the holiday, she wanted it to be special for them. Each day they received a special little treat from the advent calendar and each day she added more to their Christmas scene. Magnet had gotten tangled up in the lights, but didn’t want them removed. For now, Sady would allow it. She drank her hot cocoa as she reflected on the past year and everything that had happened. She looked lovingly at her girls and found gratitude that there were at least two creatures in her life that had yet to betray her.

Ingredients

I am such a sucker for decor and houses in SL. I took a break from blogging home decor for a few months a while back and I missed it so bad, I had to return. I’m far from being one of the top home decor bloggers, but I can promise you that it tears at my heart each time I build a scene and tear it down. However, once in a while I come across things that scream to me that they should be together. That is exactly what happened to me when I saw this kitchen set at 6 Republic and then saw this skybox from Toro. There are only a couple of days left in that event, so if you don’t make it, be sure to swing by Seraphim to see what you missed, then hit up the mainstores to collect the ingredients you’ll need for your dream home.crave kitchen

Find the light

This entire song has been one of those songs that I’ve related closely to from the very first time I heard it. There’s a weird sense of comfort in surrendering myself to the pain accompanied by lyrics. I didn’t list all of the lyrics, just the first punch. This is one of those songs that just…well…give it a listen sometime and if you really hate the melody, maybe just google the lyrics and read them over. *shrugs* Do what you want, I know I do. *forces a smile*
“Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half, you wake and let’s wait to start the morning process
Rebuilding and you’re still a work in progress
Today is a whole new chapter, it’s like an enormous ass
The thunderstorm has passed ya
Your weather didn’t poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you
Used to smell the roses, stopped to inhale can’t even tell your nose is stuffed
So focused on the brightside, then you floor the gas pedal
And hit the corner fast, the more asserted
Never looking back, may hit the curb
But everyday is a new learning curve, as you, steer through life
Sometimes you might not wanna swerve
But you have to to avert a disaster, lucky, no permanent damage
Cause they hurt you so bad, it’s like they murdered your ass
And threw dirt on your casket, but you returned from the ashes
And that hurt that you have, you just converted to gasoline
And while you’re burning the past, standing at inferno and chant
I’m standing in the flames
It’s a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light”

Coffee House

“Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but
Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but…”
~Sylvan Esso – Coffee

I’ve always love quaint, comfy locally owned coffee shops. Long before Starbucks put itself in ever Target and strip mall they could fine, before Dunkin was better know for their coffee than their donuts, there were these amazing little coffee shops in my area. They made you feel at home. The coffee was great, the people were great, the atmosphere was great. Though each coffee house had its own energy and style, each one was equally welcoming. Sadly, when Starbucks and Dunkin popped up everywhere with their fancy little drive thru windows…and life got busier…and I pulled away from my friends…well, I don’t even remember the last time I was in one of those coffee houses.
I’m adding a little tagline/side note to end of each blog going forward, because my blog posts are being stolen for another site. ***So, please know if you are reading this on any site that suggests this post was originally published anywhere but SadyStyle by anyone other than Sadystika Sabretooth, you are reading a stolen post.
