Lift Me Up

This post goes out to my closest friends…my truest friends. I won’t list them by name, because they know who they are  and I’m pretty sure they know how much they mean to me. I can’t imagine where I’d be without them. To be honest, there have been a few times that if not for them…I’m not sure I’d be here. So, this song is for you all and know that I love you so freaking much, whether you’re an asshole or a cunt…you all mean the absolute world to me. ♥
For my readers, I urge you to tell your friends today how much you love them, because you never know how much that little gesture will make. ♥
“I’m trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I’m giving my all and I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone
Yeah, I wanted to play tough, thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman sometimes needed Superman’s soul
Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down, down, down, when I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
And if you let go, I’ll float towards the sun
I’m stronger ’cause you fill me up
But when the fear comes and I drift towards the ground
I am lucky that you’re around”

I Can’t Believe You

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

This is definitely one of my favorite quotes. I think more often than not, people tend to use it with significant others. However, let’s be fair, how many friends have you caught in a lie? I have major trust issues, but one of those issues is that I tend to be too trusting of certain people. Yet, eventually we have no choice but to open our eyes and face the truth. Some people are not real friends. They lie to us, they seriously insult us, and by doing both, they can seriously hurt us.
This is where I’m left asking myself a hoard of questions. Should I love that person unconditionally despite the toxicity of their attitude towards me? Should I try to understand where they are coming from, attempt to be the bigger person, and forgive them since they seem to be so clueless about what they are doing? Should I call them on their lies? Should I confront them about how deeply they’ve hurt me? Or do I walk away? Do I cut them from my life completely or just reduce our interactions?

this is what it feels like

The Classy Cougar

When I was younger, there was this woman, my mother’s age, that lived in my neighborhood that always fascinated me. At the time, I thought how much I’d like to be like her one day. Alas, that was not my destiny. She was beautiful and elegant, at least I thought so. Mind you, I was young and rather impressionable, not to mention naive. I just remember that she wore lingerie whenever you saw her at home. No, not pajamas, but beautiful lingerie, with long sheer, lace robes…some even had that furry stuff around the edges…and heels! Oh, she always had on heels to match. She was quite popular, as I’m sure you can imagine. How does the line in the song go…”She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends.” She definitely had those.
For a long time, I just watched her in admiration, imagining what life was like inside her apartment. I eventually met her and she was every bit as amazing in person. I went inside her apartment and it was amazing. The colors, the curtains…she had so many beautiful things. I got to know her over the coming months. I could probably write an entire book about her. Instead, I’m sharing a brief memory of a glamorous Nubian queen that I met once upon a time, because when setting up this photo I thought of her. Isn’t it funny the impressions that people sometimes leave on our lives?

Promise Me This

 

Ben Howard – Promise

And meet me there, bundles of flowers
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls
Tearing down doors of time
Shelter as we go
And promise me this
You’ll wait for me only
Scared of the lonely arms
Surface, far below these burn
And maybe, just maybe I’ll come home
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
Going to tell you stories of mine
Who am I?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Could be a burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Going to be a burden
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
I come alone here
I come alone here
promise

Smile

I know there’s a certain irony in calling this post smile when I’m not smiling at all. It could have been called Resting Bitch Face and perhaps made a bit more sense. Then again, I’m not really writing about smiling, that just happens to be the name of the song I attached below the credits. I’m not posting the lyrics this time, because they don’t fully speak for me like they often do. My mind is pretty scattered today, actually. I went to the doctor yesterday and I was prescribed two more meds to take along with the others. One of them is a muscle relaxer and I swear I feel down right loopy. So, I’m just leave you with this…hold your head up no matter what’s going on and if you’re too weak to hold your head up, lean on a friend, because there’s a reason to smile waiting around the corner. And if this all sounds like nonsense, then I blame the meds. 😉

pure
We’re trying so hard to get it all right
But only feel lonely at the end of the night
I wanna be somewhere away from this place
Yeah, somewhere just a little closer to grace

Dear Bloggers…pt 2

Dear Bloggers,

Please stop treating what we do as a competition. It’s not a sport. There’s room for everyone.
Stop stabbing other bloggers in the back or trying to throw them under the bus. It rarely works out the way you hope it does and in the end, karma finds it’s way back to you.
Remember that none of us are perfect. Learn to forgive one another for misunderstandings and work together as a community.
Don’t bad mouth each other in front of their best friends.
Remember who helped you when you first started, know that as much as you run your mouths, so do the people you run and talk to.
Don’t bash a brand or even hint at bashing a brand in a public forum. You’re only making yourself look bad and you’re burning more than one bridge when you do that.
Stop taking everything so personally. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
There’s no need to suck up to designers and lie to them about the people that work for them. Designers are not idiots and you can damn well bet they know what they’re doing and who is who on their teams.
Accept feedback for what it is, constructive criticism, remember that it’s not your brand.
And last but not least, if YOU think this post is aimed at you….well, you might want to think about why you think that and just for the record, this isn’t actually aimed at one person specifically. This is just a list of what I thought was common sense behaviors, but apparently isn’t. Not sure why I bother doing these little schpeils, but I suppose I hope its going to make a difference. *shrugs* If you found anything useful, take it and use it. If not, leave it here and forget it. I really just want people to stop wasting their precious time on hate and negativity. So…happy shopping…happy blogging…happy living. ❤

Sweet and Innocent

Why are you already laughing? You don’t even know what I was going to say! Stop it! *sighs* Let me know when you’re done laughing and I’ll continue…hell, I didn’t even get started. *narrows her eyes* Hey, we were all sweet and innocent once upon a time, except Tracy…she clawed her way from the womb and starting sucking the souls of the hospital staff. Creepy little ginger baby crawling the walls at night….yeah, that was her. Okay, I knew you would laugh at the title. I don’t really have anything to say except that this Becca set is so cute and versatile. You’ll want the fatpack, because the possibilities here are damn near endless. See? I made myself look sweet and innocent! You know better, but I can pretend….after all, isn’t that what we do in Second Life?

This Is NOT a Golden Shower

Sometimes I get on these creative highs and I just can’t stop. I might take six pictures in a day, spend the next day editing…then I’ve got photos and rarely have anything in mind to write. So, I’ll reach out to random friends and ask their opinions or sometimes even a topic. This morning was no different. I’m staring at the photo. I like it. I’m rather proud of it. I had some artistic vision and I managed to see it through. I kinda know what it makes me feel, but I don’t want to talk about that just yet. Its too raw.
Oh look, my dear friend Dusty Wasp is online. I’ll ask him. Afterall, he’s given me songs for photos before and they always worked out great. So, I pass him the photo and ask for help. And this asshole (yeah, I said it) says to me, “given the suggestive setting and the golden hues…” and this is where he stops to chuckle…”yeah, I’ll just leave it at that.”
DUSTY MF’N WASP! THIS IS NOT A GOLDEN SHOWER!!

God, I love my friends!♥

Never Have I Ever #SecondLifeChallenge

Strawberry Singh is away for a family emergency. I hope everything turns out alright for her and her family. She is truly a lovely person. However, I dove into her archives for a challenge and found this one: Never Have I Ever!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following statements and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!

  1. Never have I ever had sex, in Second Life. –  Oh yes and still do, judge me if you want, but I like it!
  2. Never have I ever visited a sex sim, in Second Life. – *bursts into giggles* I have visited lots, but not for sex. Once upon a time I was a bit of a troll. Not a griefer, but I would go to sex sims and complain about no one actually having sex, that kinda thing.
  3. Never have I ever been an escort or stripper, in Second Life. – I tried the escort thing for all of 2 weeks. It was my very first avi and escorting was pretty much pressing buttons, but even then it creeped me out and I just couldn’t do it. Stripping? Yeah, did that a few times for the first few years in SL. I don’t think I’ve done it at least 6 years.
  4. Never have I ever been in porn videos in Second Life. – Nope, not that I’m aware of anyway.
  5. Never have I ever done things that may be illegal in the real world, in Second Life. – Oh sure I have…kidnapping, drugs, vandalism…nothing gross though.
  6. Never have I ever created an ALT for secret activities, in Second Life. – Hmmm, not sure how secret they were, but yeah, I did have some alts over the years.
  7. Never have I ever had a one night stand, in Second Life. – Oh, yes, I have…more than one actually, but its been well over a year and while I remember who, I don’t remember the actual act, if that tells you anything.
  8. Never have I ever been part of a roleplay community, in Second Life. –  I’ve tried, but I failed miserably.
  9. Never have I ever discovered a new fetish, because of Second Life. – Hm…I’d have to say I have definitely discovered new turns ons, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’ve developed a fetish for anything.
  10. Never have I ever done things in Second Life that I wouldn’t admit to my friends or family. – Maybe not to my family, but my friends? I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t tell my friends about SL. Mind you, my friends are IN SL, so not like they wouldn’t understand. I don’t like people in my RL.
