You ever get that feeling?

“You know the days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds. You mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat, and maybe it’s been raining too long. You’re just sad, that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?”

Quite Eager

I don’t have anything especially important to write about this morning. For once thing, I’m feeling a bit like a popsicle. It is below freezing this morning and apparently will remain this cold all day long. Now, I might not be nearly as bothered if I didn’t have to run out the door in a couple of hours for therapy. It is sooo damn cold out there, I can’t help but wonder if my mental health is really THAT important. *laughs* It is and I’m going. I’ll face the tundra, because I’ve come too far to start dropping out now. I think anyone that reads my blog regularly or knows me well, can testify that its helping.
On that note, I’m just going to mention that 6 Republic is back with a new round. It doesn’t seem quite as expansive has it has in the past, but they did not disappoint with the decor of the sim nor the content. Below you will find sets from MudHoney and THOR that I’ve merged together in what I can only describe as a hotel room for some man that is quite eager to get started on his adventure at WestWorld. *laughs*

Welcome Home

This one goes out to a new friend. Her heart was ripped from her chest earlier this week and her story shattered mine. She lost…well…her precious baby of three beautiful years crossed the rainbow bridge. I’m not going to bring you all to your knees in a puddle of tears with the wretched details. Those of us with pets know how tragic a loss like that is…especially when its unexpected. Anyone with a dog knows that warm fuzzy feeling having the four legged friend waiting anxiously inside the door to welcome us home. We also know how empty the house feels without them. So, until she finds room in her heart to welcome another fur baby into her home…I want her to know that she has love here that will always welcome her. And though I might not have a tail to wag, I will still lick her face like Dino on Fred! I love you, Stef. ♥

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”
~ Rihanna – Work

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

Good Gacha

Raindale literally made me gasp as I opened the blogger box to discover the beautiful contents. To me, THIS is how you do a gacha. This is one of those gachas, that you can play and no matter what you get from it, you can use it. The lilypads (lotus leaves), the bridges (come in 3 colors), the boat with cuddle animations. I mean I tossed out the set and created this beautiful asian garden, but I’ve seen the boat used in rivers and lakes already in other blogs. So, there you have it, another reason to get your butt down to 6 Republic and grab those deals before it closes down for another 6 months!

Picture Perfect Patio

I’ve had so much fun creating all these decor scenes lately. I only have like six going all the time. *laughs* This one was a huge favorite of mine, bringing together some of my all time favorite stores. Not all of them, mind you, I’m not sure I could even do that. However, one thing I’ve always wanted in the real world was a deck like this. Somewhere to hang out alone or with friends, surrounded by lush greenery and the sea. This is the second week of 6 Republic and that means you’ve got until the 20th to get all the goodies, cuz this is a two week event that only happens twice a year. So, all you decor junkies best get on over there and scoop up the goods, so you can create you own picture perfect patios.

Actions

Actions will always speak louder than words, you just have to know how to listen by watching. I’ve talked about friendship dozens of times. Obviously, I’m no expert. I don’t even like people that much. That’s why I spend so much time alone. The older I get, the more people I get to know, the more true it becomes that I’m happier alone more often than not. However, if there’s one thing I do know, it’s this: A real and valued friendship can conquer adversity with truth.
Disposing of a friendship without any explanation speaks volumes about the type of person you are and what value you placed on that friendship. It doesn’t say shit about why you walked away. I’m not saying that everyone is due an explanation. Sometimes, its so obvious to us that we can’t imagine the other person would question why. The thing is, if they come to you confused and you refuse an explanation, not only have you just expressed how unimportant that person is to you, but you come off  a bit cowardly in my opinion. Your reason is yours, but if you’re not ready to explain or defend that reason…well, that really says more about you than them, don’t you think?
If your attitude and demeanor changes towards a friend, trust that they will notice. Furthermore, if they approach you about that change and you deny it? Well, you might as well unfriend them with no explanation. You’ve essentially just lied to their face and said in no uncertain terms that they are not worth the truth. Authentic friendships will not unravel over a little disagreement or even a big one, if both parties are mature and care enough to work through it.
Just food for thought, because I’ve dealt with all of these situations recently. I know I’m not perfect, but I do think I’m a decent friend more often than not. I own my mistakes and I own my pain. I will tell you that it hurts to be blatantly deceived and betrayed by someone you believed in. If you ever valued your friend, why not grab some ice cream, take a little walk, and talk it out. Maybe you can’t resolve it, but you damn sure won’t if you don’t try.

Not everyone agrees with secondary photos in blogs and I’m not one to do them all the time, but on occasion I will be adding a second photo that zooms in on a few things to give a better look at the details our amazing creators put into their designs.

Easier Said

How do you talk to yourself? I was watching this amazing podcast conversation between Joe Rogan and Russell Brand on YouTube. Russell Brand was asking Joe how he addresses himself in his head. Asking him if he addresses his inner child or old child self? He mentioned how Tony Robbins yells at himself to self motivate, but that Russell coddles himself quite a bit, speaking quite softly and encouragingly. It got me to thinking about how I speak to myself. Sadly, I talk to me the way my father talked to me. Now, I’m sitting here asking why? I would never talk to anyone else the way I talk to myself. Why the hell would I berate myself in such a way? It really is ridiculous. Now that I’m in therapy, I think this is something I’m going to need to work on. It’s easy for me to recognize what I’m doing at this point, but changing what I do? Hmmm, that’s definitely going to be one of those easier said kinda things.
