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. ❤

Baggage

We all have some sort of emotional baggage. Some are lucky enough to travel light. Some of us have to rent out a storage room to keep up with everything that happens to us. The thing is we definitely need to put it somewhere, otherwise we’re dragging it all around with us all the time and it just weighs us down. We don’t need to carry it around displaying it with pride like, “Oh look at me, I was abused as a kid!” We must learn how to deal with it and once we do, we need to pack it neatly away so that when we revisit it, or these metaphorical boxes in our imaginary closets/storage rooms come crashing down, we can deal with it accordingly. Yes, occasionally it will happen that one or more of those boxes might fall open, but just like photographs in a shoe-box, we need to learn to sift through those memories and realize how far we’ve come. Then shove that crap right back in the box and possibly find a more secure place for it. Then lock it up and guard the key, only offering to open it up and share with people we’ve learned to trust. People we know won’t turn around and use the things they discover like weapons against us down the line.
Maybe I’m waxing too philosophical this morning. Maybe none of that made sense to anyone, but me. Then I again, my blog is my therapy…so what do you expect? *chuckles*

Shit Happens, Just Don’t Forget To Flush

When I was a tiny little girl, dragging my dolls around by one arm, my mother would tell me to treat others the way I wanted to be treated. She used my dolls as an example and asked how I’d like to be dragged around like that. The naturally born smart ass that I am, I simply said, “I dunno, wets twy it!”
After rolling her eyes and sighing, she sat me down and went over the golden rule until I understood it. I lived my life that way all the way through middle school. Along the way, I learned that just because I did that, did not mean that people would treat me the way I wanted to be treated. At the same time, my father decided to teach me a different lesson. He told me to keep treating others the way I want to be treated, but to accept other’s behavior as if they were treating me the way they wanted to be treated. Therefore, if they treated me like crap, I should treat them like crap. Thus began many years of fighting and endless drama. Thanks, Dad.
Later on in life, I learned that when people me like crap. I SHOULD treat them like crap, too. But ya know what I do with crap? I flush it down the toilet and don’t think about it again. I don’t stand around examining it, wondering anything about it. I simply flush.

p.s. I wrote this as much for me as I did anyone else, because sometimes I forget to flush, too.

Look Good, Feel Good

It’s true what they say, “If you look good, you feel good.” I don’t know how many times I’ve been able to turn my day around just by doing my hair, makeup, and putting on a cute outfit. I so rarely leave my house, but when I get fixed up a bit…well, suddenly I want to walk the dog all over the neighborhood. I’m more apt to run errands and sing along to the radio in my car. So, the next time you’re feeling a little blah or just run down, try to muster up the energy to fix yourself up and get out into the real world for a bit. It really is amazing the way it will boost your confidence and your spirit.

Perspective

What I have is a malevolent curiosity. That’s what drives my need to write and what probably leads me to look at things a little askew. I do tend to take a different perspective from most people. David Bowie

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?

Crooked World

Crooked World
written by Sadystika Sabretooth

It’s a crooked world,
full of broken people,
plenty of hungry hyenas
on the prowl
just waiting
to snatch up the scraps.

They will use your broken pieces
to create something beautiful
and then sell it back to you.

The lies and all the poison…
polluting every cell,
every fiber,
and stitch of humanity….
until there’s nothing left.

The careless walk among us
dressed as saviors
offering shoulders
made of sponges,
soaking up every ounce
of emotional ammo
we shed in our tears.
They load their invisible guns
and declare their silent war.

With each shot,
they push us
further and further away until
we’re backed into corners.
The view from there is amazing,
because now we see the truth…
all of it…
even the parts you can’t see
the lies as they pour from your mouth
and now we laugh
with our friends
as we whisper behind your back.

You’ve put on your little act
for so long
that even when it blows up
in your face
you’re so oblivious
you think you’re untouchable.

You’re not.

It’s a set up
we’re waiting
to watch you fall.

You will fall.
You thought we’d save you?
No
we’ll raise our glasses
as you stumble backwards
over the bodies in your wake
and finally fall into your own grave.

shaky ground
It’s getting harder to know if I’m sane
My issues are leaking outside of my veins
Somebody save me or end me, I haven’t yet made up my mind

“C’mere, I want to tell you something,” she said as she crawled across the bed towards him. She curled her finger to motion him closer. As he moved closer, thinking he was about to get a kiss, she whispered, “I don’t give a fuck.”
He stood up, a look of shock washed over his face, “What the…”
She laughed, stood up and grabbed her purse and phone.
He was thoroughly confused as she walked out the door, until he walked around to the side of the bed she’d been standing on and saw two condom wrappers on the floor.

Will This Phase Ever End?

I’m so far behind and as I’ve mentioned before, some of my posts get rejected from time to time. So, brace yourself for songs and quotes in the upcoming week as I play catch up.

Nothing More – Jenny

A little sleep, a little slumber
A little folding of the hands
Left you weak, left you hungry
When there’s supply you still demand
You’re beginning to drag the ones you love down
Will this phase ever end?
A thousand arms to hold you
But you won’t reach for any hands
‘Cause I don’t feel like I’m getting through to you
Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear
See your mother here, her last painful year
I wish you only knew
She stuck around for you
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that’s what you need
To finally see
I’ll be with you through it all
Bring on the pills, roll that dollar bill
Medicating will never heal
Relapse, rehab, repeat
Always thinking about the me, me, me
Self-destruct, spiral down
Until your want becomes your need
Please get up like I know you can
Or forever love the fall
‘Cause I don’t feel like I’m getting through to you
Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear
See your mother here, her last painful year
I wish you only knew
She stuck around for you
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that’s what you need
To finally see
I’ll be with you through it all
I can’t stand to see you down
Strung out, off the wagon, and unwound
Steady, steady, Oh God, Jenny
I can’t bear to hear the sound
Of your body hitting the ground
Oh Jenny Jenny Jenny
Stuck around for you
He stuck around for you
Stuck around for you
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that’s what you need
To finally see
She loved you through it all
Maybe you should just fall
And if that’s what you need
To finally see
She loved you through it all
I’ll be with you through it all!
