Had Enough

“Take a deep breath and count to three
And then I’ll be behavin’
I feel like people just don’t get me
Maybe I’m crazy

Think I’ve blown a fuse
There’s blood on my knuckles
The smile on my face is fake
And the vein on my head suggests you get running

I’ve had enough, had enough
Had enough, had enough yeah
Cause I’ve had enough
I think I’m reaching the limit
You should keep your distance
Cause I’ve had enough”
~ Diamante – Had Enough

Collected the Pieces

“I’ve tasted blood and it is sweet
I’ve had the rug pulled beneath my feet
I’ve trusted lies and trusted men
Broke down and put myself back together again
Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger
I’ve pinched my skin in between my two fingers
And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors”
~ Halsey – Nightmare

Decoration

“Join me I deserved it
No time to have you lurking
If I got right then you might like it
You know I dealt with you the nicest
Nobody touch me, in the righteous
Nobody text me in a crisis
I believed all of your dreams are duration
You took my heart and my keys and my patience
You took my heart off my sleeve a decoration
You mistaken my love I brought for you for foundation
All that I wanted from you was to gimme
Something that I never had
Something that you’ve never seen
Something that you’ve never been
But I wake up and everything’s wrong”

Be Inspired

When you surround yourself with loving, inspiring people, you cannot help but feel that love and to be inspired. The more time you spend with positive, inspirational individuals the more you evolve in a similar direction. The same is true of negativity and hate. That doesn’t mean, that we copy one another or try to beat one another. It means let us inspire one another to be motivated. There’s no reason to waste all that energy on hate or competition. Be the best that you can be and inspires others to do the same.
It’s become so easy to sit around and complain about all the things we hate. However, if we turn that energy around and instead of looking at the things we dislike, we take a mental inventory of all the blessings surrounding us. If you are reading this, you are using the internet. That, in and of itself, is a blessing. There’s no internet guarantees in life. It’s just as easy to look for the positive as it is to find the negative, but it comes down to the choices you make.
I write this as much for myself as I do anyone else, because I’ve been trained to find the bad in life. As far back as I can remember, my parents were telling me what was wrong with me, what was wrong with what I’d done, and expecting me to fail. At this point in my life, I can’t really blame them anymore. I’ve been a grown ass adult far longer than I was a child, but I’ve not always surrounded myself with positive people. I do know from experience that not only does surrounding yourself with positive people tend to make you more positive, but it can improve your mental health. I’m not suggesting it will cure a mental illness, but it can help. Being positive certainly doesn’t hurt.

Piling Stuff Up

So, Fancy Decor came out with this gorgeous, elegant bathroom sink set for TMD. The minute I saw it, I thought, “Oh, that’s nice! Why doesn’t my bathroom ever look like that?” Then I remembered that’s its because I’m always piling stuff up around mine. So, with a little help from my inventory or as to be more specific, Ariskea and Half Deer, I was able to make this sleek manly sink into a girl’s sink in just minutes! I probably should have added a make up back, some brushes, face wash, etc, but here it is…a clean-ish looking Ludwig set via Sady’s brilliant mind. *giggles*

Follow Me

“Survived, tonight, I may be going down,
Cause everything goes round too, tight, tonight,
And it, you watch him crawl, you stand for more.
And your panic stricken, blood will thicken up, tonight
Cause I don’t want you, to forgive me,
You’ll follow me down, you’ll follow me down,
You’ll follow me down
Survive tonight, (I see your) head’s exposed,
So we shall kill, constructive might, s’right,
As your emotions fool you, (my) strong will rule,
I won’t feel restraint, watching you close sense down,
I can’t compensate, that’s more than I’ve got to give.”

Limitless and Free

One of my favorite bands of all time is The Doors, but like so many other things, if you listen to something with fresh ears, read something with fresh eyes, it just might take on a new meaning for you. Just as this song has for me. I never thought I’d look at the lyrics to a song by The Doors and think, “Wow, that really fits SL!” Alas, here it is…

“Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need of some stranger’s hand
In a desperate land

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There’s danger on the edge of town
Ride the king’s highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby”
~ The Doors – The End

This is Real

Here’s a snippet of one of the best songs ever, performed by some of the greatest rock musicians of my time. It’s amazing talent like this that for a few minutes, even on the worst day, can make me glad to be alive. I love to listen to this on full volume and sing as loud as I want and dare anyone to try and stop me. If you’re not familiar, then check it out, the youtube link is below….this is real fucking music!!!

“Under the water,
It’s cold and it’s grey.
My torrid autumn,
Another season decays.
Open up the Hollow,
And my walls come down.
I tell you it’s a problem,
Just when no one’s around.
But then,

I know what’s wrong,
God, you complicated everything.
I know you’re gone, gone, gone,
This is where I will draw a line.

I will draw my line.

Burning my cathedrals’,
Cause I don’t pray anymore.
Look at all of these people, Tragic little people,
They smile and then they don’t know what for.
But then,

I know what’s wrong,
God, you complicated everything.
I know you’re gone, gone, gone,
This is where I will blur my line.”
~ From Can To Can’t
(Corey Taylor with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen, Scott Reeder)
(from “Sound City” soundtrack)

Diversion on Ladder

So my beautiful friend, Rina Edenflower, recently retired from blogging. I’ll be honest, I was a bit devastated as she’s someone I’ve admired for years. Turns out, she’s moved from blogger to creator and is making poses. This particular pose can be found on Marketplace for only L$10. She’s just starting out, so there’s not a lot on there just yet, but these are poses made by a successful blogger who only retired after five years of blogging. So, if there’s a pose maker out there that knows what bloggers need, she is definitely one of them. So, watch out Flickr, Rina’s not done with you yet! (She just changed the name of her story from Latter to Diversion, so initially the post was called Latter on Ladder, which was funny to me…now it’s just weird, but that’s ok)

White Lion

Oh how I loved 80s hair bands, especially those that perfected the rock ballads and few bands did it better than White Lion. I’m actually not sure this band did anything else…*laughs* Somehow this song seems as appropriate today as it ever did, so I’ll share the first bit of lyrics with the link and you can decide whether or not to check it out/revisit. And ladies? Mike Tramp is one of the few lead singers from the 80s to still look as good, if not better, than he did back in the day. RAWR!

“Little child dry your crying eyes
How can I explain the fear you feel inside
‘Cause you were born into this evil world
Where man is killing man and no one knows just why
What have we become just look what we have done
All that we destroyed you must build again”
~ White Lion – When the Children Cry
