Like a Lighthouse

How can someone stand so damn close
And feel like they’re worlds away?
I can see your sad story eyes
So how do you have no words to say?

All I want is to fall in deeper
Than I’ve ever been, why won’t you let me?
I can handle your heart, so help me

Here you are, next to me
So much beauty at my feet
All I wanna do is swim
But the waves keep crashing in
No, I’m not afraid to drown
Take me out, take me down
I’m so tired of the shore
Let me in, baby
You’re an ocean beautiful and blue
I wanna swim in you

Like a lighthouse, I’ve been shining bright
Through the dark for the both of us
And “I’ve done it outta love” is not enough
But God, how I wish it was

And I don’t wanna find out
How much lonely I can take before you lose me
Baby, look at me and swear you won’t lose me
~Lady Antebellum – Oceans

Keep Them Happy

Pinning Joe down for photographs is going to be my new hobby! Of course, that means he’s gonna need to do some shopping and we’re definitely going to change that hair! *laughs cuz she knows he’s reading this* Give me time and I’ll give him a complete make over…*giggles* Yep, cuz that’s what we do, right, girls? We pin them down and then start molding them into what we want. The secret is to keep them happy during the process. *winks* Otherwise, we’re just making them pretty for the next girl!

Rumors & Gossip

We live in an age of rapidly moving information…and misinformation. So rumors can often hurt those that don’t bother to check their facts and when we spread rumors, we need to check our motives. Why are we spreading said gossip? What do we have to gain by sharing this tale and do we know for sure that what we’re sharing is 100% true? If not, perhaps we shouldn’t be sharing it. A good way to approach gossip is to think about the people you’re talking about. If you wouldn’t want them to know you said what you’re saying, you probably shouldn’t say it. It’s that simple. As listeners, we have a responsibility, as well. If someone is dishing out the “tea” about someone we care about, we shouldn’t just sit there listening and accepting these stories as truth. We can simply remind the story teller that we’re not interested in the gossip. If we all stop being so receptive to gossip, the gossip queens won’t have an audience. And chances are if they’re talking about everyone else behind their backs, they’re probably talking about us when we’re not around, too.

Celebrate Yourself

People grow and change all the time. I’ve always hated hearing someone say that people don’t change, because they most certainly do. And a lot of us need to. If people never changed, we would never progress in life. But its more than that. We change at different paces and in different directions. This is not a bad thing. Sadly, it does mean that some of us grow apart. It does not mean we love one another any less.
Instead of looking at our differences and cringing at the evolution of our relationships, we need to celebrate ourselves. Particularly if our personal changes are making us happier with ourselves and the world around us. We shouldn’t grieve the things we’re losing, we should celebrate the things we’re gaining. We should not feel ashamed of personal progress, ever. Let’s face it, if we are moving in a positive direction, those that love us most will take notice and they will be happy for our personal successes. Those that don’t? Well, there’s nothing we can do about that. We cannot change how others receive our changes. What we can do, is keep on keeping on, put our best foot forwards, and continue to grow in a positive direction. There’s no shame in personal growth. Go ahead, celebrate yourself. *raises a glass*

A little happier

My therapist said something really enlightening the other day and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. She said, “The most thankful people tend to be the happiest.” This took me back to a time in my life that I kept a gratitude journal. I would start and end every single day by writing about something for which I was grateful. It really did make a huge difference in my daily perspective. Sometimes it was something as simple as being grateful for a bed to sleep in, as there have been times in my life when I did not have such a luxury. Sometimes it would be something monumental, like being grateful that my mom is still alive and annoying me. The funny thing about gratitude is that when you find yourself looking at your life for things to be grateful for, you find more than you thought you would. Suddenly, your perception starts to change. So, it makes sense that we would be a little happier. *winks* So, today, I am grateful that someone has taken the time to read these words. That’s right, today I am grateful for YOU. ♥

I wrote my own pain

Wild roses on a bed of leaves
In the month of May
I think I wrote my own pain
Oh don’t you

Down by the creek I couldn’t sleep
So I followed a feeling
Sounds like the vines they are breathing
And I’ve seen the way the seasons change
When I just give it time
But I feel out of my mind
All the time

In the night I am wild-eyed
And you got me now

Her Wish

She had gathered every potion, sipped every elixir, pricked herself with the thorn of a rose, and repeated the chat a dozen plus one times…just as the witch had instructed. She felt like such a fool, sitting among all the bottles that promised him to her. She felt a fool for even believing such a love could be possible. Despite all logic, her heart ached for him and only him. Would her wish ever come true?

Let me explain…or not

I just had the funniest conversation with my 73yr old mother in real life, that I felt it was share worthy. First, I want to say that my mother has always been open minded and accepting of all people. She had a gay bestie in college, which is saying a lot, considering it was the 60s! So, without further adieu…this is my trying to explain something to my mom.

Me: Oh she’s TransFemale.
Mom: so she’s gonna be a man?
Me: no, she’s a woman
Mom: NOW? or before?
Me: always
Mom: no, but she was born as a man, right?
Me: no, she’s always been a woman…she just had the wrong parts
Mom: so she was born with men’s parts?
Me: yes, Momma
Mom: so she was a man
Me: no, she’s always been a woman!
Mom: then how is she trans?
Me: oh ffs, yes, she was born a man, go away!

I swear sometimes I think she does it on purpose. And what does this have to do with the photo? Absolutely nothing. *laughs*

Love is a beautiful thing

My sexuality isn’t something I talk about or advertise in my profile, because I simply don’t feel the need. I try my best not to put myself in some box under some label that someone else came up with, but for some reason if you don’t claim a “team” its automatically assumed that you’re straight. Honestly, I don’t really care that much what people think, but I suppose if I had to assume a label, I’d say I’m pansexual. Now, this is one of those things that people seems to confuse with bisexual, but the its actually a bit different. It simply means that sexuality is fluid and that I love people. The people I have loved over the years have been a variety of things. I’ve loved mostly men, that’s true, but I’ve loved women, too. In Second Life, I’ve loved women that used male avatars. They didn’t identify as men in real life and had no desire to, but they were more comfortable living as men in Second Life. That’s one of the beauties of Second Life. You can be whatever you want….young, old, male, female…thin, fat, tall, short…etc.
So, why say anything about it now? Well, I recently heard someone make a comment about bisexuals & pansexuals being wishy washy and greedy. I have to disagree. I’m VERY picky and you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone on the grid that would say otherwise. I’m not out there sleeping with everyone. I won’t date just anyone to fill that relationship void. Even in my darkest hours, I didn’t do that. The question I have is why does it matter who I love? Why does it matter who anyone loves? Love is a beautiful thing and should be celebrated in all its forms. If you are lucky enough to find someone that you genuinely love and they love you back, then do you and be happy. ♥
