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.

Kill & Chill

So, almost everyone knows that Netflix & Chill has lost it’s original meaning and turned into code for something comparable to a booty call. I personally still think of it is as me binge watching TV from the comfort of my bed with some good snacks! However, sometimes I’m irritated or anxious and sitting still watching television isn’t going to do the trick. Sure, I could take a xanax and calm down, but then I’d pass the fuck out. That’s too chill, especially when I’ve got so much on my plate. This past year I was introduced to Guild Wars 2 and I’ve got to say it has become the perfect escape for me. There are times that I am simply not feeling social, but going into another virtual world to kill monsters? Oh yes, please!!! Plus, its no big secret that I’m a lover of violence!
The minute I saw this fantastic form fitting bodysuit from Bueno, my mind immediately went to Kill Bill, as it is one of my favorite films of all time. I even did a term paper in college on Beatrice, but that’s a story for another time. It probably would have been more appropriate for this picture, but anyone that reads my blog regularly knows that I do what I want! *laughs*

The Timeline

I’ve decided to write about this here rather than Facebook, for the simple reason that I don’t want 100 notifications about silly comments & arguments. All of that is welcome here, but my computer won’t ding every time someone does it here…lol. So, here’s the tea:

Every so often I come across these posts where someone is complaining about all the negativity and drama on their timeline. Quite regularly these posts are accompanied by requests or challenges to post something positive. I always wonder who these people are friends with on Facebook and why they continue to follow such Debbie Downers? I’ll be honest, the posts complaining about other posts are usually the most negative things I see. Not to mention that on the rare occasion that I do come across something negative, its usually those people fussing about someone else. So, I wonder if we run in completely different circles or they’re completely missing someone’s sense of humor. Perhaps they’re overly sensitive or fail to realize they have the power to unfollow negative people. Or maybe they forgot that on Facebook, we can post whatever we want (except nudes, cuz God forbid)…and if someone doesn’t like it…well, let’s loop back around to that unfollow option. I don’t know if I’m the only one that experiences this, but it seems to pop up at least once a week for me.
With that said, I’ll tell you what I see on my timeline almost daily. I see lots and lots of gorgeous photos done by bloggers from across the grid. I see ads from amazing designers and I see jokes from all walks of life. I don’t know exactly when memes became a thing, but I sure do enjoy them. So, here’s what I suggest: If you find your timeline to be full of negativity, then unfollow those people and make room for the fun stuff, cuz there’s plenty of it out there without you having to ask or challenge people from your status. All that does is make you look like one of the negative nancies…and I’m going to assume that you don’t want that.

Warning Signs

?We wove a sticky web in a dirty little game
And I was hypnotized
All your bad juju and all your weird voodoo
Made me go blind
There was nothing there but the shell of the girl
You left behind
But I wasn’t seeing, I just wasn’t seeing
Somehow I missed the warning signs”

Seize the Day

“To wait for someone else, or to expect someone else to make my life richer, or fuller, or more satisfying, puts me in a constant state of suspension.” ~ Kathleen Tierney Andrus

Do you surrender your desires in an effort to please others thinking: Once my kids finish  school, I’ll be able to focus on what I want; maybe I’ll get that promotion if I just work harder and put in extra time;  my parents will  finally accept my major if I just go to the school they picked; and so on.
But do changes in other people really make things better for you? If you believe that, then you should take a good hard look outward, instead of inward, for your happiness. Don’t allow yourself to be as powerless as a kickball at recess.
You can create your own peaceful shelter when you proceed through your life by setting boundaries not only for yourself, but for those you interact with. There’s no need to wait for your kid(s) to finish school to focus on your needs. You don’t need to work yourself to the bone be rewarded.  And you don’t have to compromise your desires in order to please your parents. Just figure out what makes you happy. Apply for that promotion without pushing yourself so hard. Stop waiting for other people to provide what you need and desire. It’s up to you to seize the day and make it your bitch.

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!♥

Would you?

Would you knowingly eat food that you knew was going to make you sick? I think its safe to say that most of us would not. So, why are we so quick to surround ourselves with poisonous people? Why are we so slow to escape unhealthy relationships? Neither are good for our soul and they prevent us from finding joy and true happiness. Why do we waste so much energy and time on such things? We all need to stop with the stupid shit, like arguing over things that aren’t going to matter next month, much less five  years from now. The sooner we all let go of the toxic crap in our lives, the sooner we’ll all discover that we are capable of enjoying a better life. I’ll be over here enjoying my virtual churros pretending they are good for me, while you mull that over.
