Slow Down

As I was driving home from therapy, I got behind a navy and silver SUV. I was thinking how great the colors looked together and why there aren’t more two tones cars. Eventually, I realized that it was a State Trooper. So glad I wasn’t tailgating. HA! So, as we’re traveling along the same road, I come upon my exit, or rather on ramp, and the trooper wants over. I motion for her/him to come on over and s/he does. We circle around the ramp and approach the interstate. Just as we get to the spot where its time for us to merge into the other lanes, this little silver sedan goes flying by at top speed. I thought to myself immediately, “Bad timing, Dude.” The trooper and I both merge rather effortlessly. I hold back from my usual shot forward, because I ain’t trying to catch a ticket. Low and behold, the trooper shot forward. At first, I thought s/he was just bolting forward because s/he can. Then I saw it. The lights started flashing and as I got closer, s/he had indeed chased down the silver sedan and was pulling it over.
In that moment, I couldn’t help but think how much a single minute in our lives can make a difference. If the silver sedan had been one minute behind us, maybe…. If the trooper had been one minute faster…if I had been one minute faster or slower, would I have been the one getting the ticket? Naturally that made me think of how fast things move in Second Life. I don’t move as quickly as most and I suppose that’s why I have remained single all this time. I know what I like. I know what I don’t like. I know myself well enough to know whether or not I’m going to be romantically compatible with people fairly quickly. I think I tend to move a bit quickly with friendships and trust friends more than I should, but I’m not ready to change either of those things about myself. Not just yet, but I think we could all benefit by take a moment to slow down. The internet isn’t going anywhere. Second Life isn’t a race and collecting partners is not the goal. I think its more important to share love and laughter as often as possible…and THAT is what I’m all about.

Surround Me

Baby take me outside
Kiss me in the moonlight
I just want you to touch me
I don’t wanna waste no time
You don’t even know me
But I want you to show me
What it feels like to be alive

The lights go down
I want you around me
Whoa

Don’t overthink it
Just finish up your drink
And surround me, surround me
The night ain’t over
We’re far from being sober
Surround me, surround me
‘Cause I like you, I like you, I like you a lot
How to see through the smoke
I don’t know how you found me, you found me
The night ain’t over
We’re far from being sober
Surround me, surround me

The first snow

The first snow
The first winter of my life
I was told it was the height of me
The first dance
Well, the first one that counted
Felt like my blood was built from crackling lights

Save Your Soul

Whatever you do, don’t ever play my game
Too many years being the king of pain
You gotta lose it all if you wanna take control
Sell yourself to save your soul

Rescue me from the demons in my mind
Rescue me from the lovers in my life
Rescue me from the demons in my mind

Claw Machines

Those claw machines work my nerves! They have the absolute cutest stuffed toys in them and I can’t work that damn claw to save my life. I will also never understand how so many damn kids get up in there to get stuck. Like, where are their parents?? Ya turn your back for 2 seconds and the little demons crawl up into a vending machine! I sure don’t wanna play it if a kid is the prize! *giggles*

Falling into the New Year

So, I’m stepping or rather falling into the new year with a positive attitude. I might fall on my ass. I might fall on my face. Regardless of how I land, I am going to make this a great year. This year is all about improving the quality of my life. I started a weight loss journey approximately three months ago and I’m already ahead of the game, having lost over 5% of my initial body weight. In fact, within a few weeks, if I’m really good…I will be have lost 10% and that’s a rather big deal. This isn’t about a new me, this is about the true me. I’m working on overcoming my anxiety and depression. I’m on the right path and those closest to me will tell you…it is working! I didn’t wait for the new year, because those resolutions that I’ve made in the past for the new year have almost always failed. These are not resolutions, at all. These are promises and commitments that I’m making to myself. By bettering myself for myself, I can be a better person, daughter, sister, friend, blogger, employee, and maybe…eventually…a better girlfriend to some lucky person..lol. Now, will someone hurry up and catch me before I bust my face apart?!?! *splat* erhm…thanks a lot!

Make it so

I survived Christmas and on that day, we tore down the decorations as that has become our tradition. We’re super excited to put up the decorations on Thanksgiving weekend, but the time Christmas rolls around we are completely over all the red and green decor. The lovely Santas are packed away and all the ornaments that survived are stuffed back into boxes. It is quite an adventure for the animals. This also comes with a new arrangement for our living room. We like to start the new year with a fresh look and feel to the main room.
Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I am definitely ready for the New Year as this will be the first year in many that I am approaching a brand new year with a great attitude. I’m filled with hope. I am positive that 2020 is going to be a better year, because I am determined to make it so.

Inner Battles

I hope that everyone is enjoying the holiday season, but I know that not everyone will. Suicide rates are higher during this time of year than any other. While the holidays tend to make most of us embrace our families and our friends, there are some that are reminded of those they lost. There are some that are feeling more alone now than any other time of year. It is super important that we put our differences aside and reach out to one another with kindness. The best gift you can share with people right now is humanity. Caring about one another and being there for those around us that might not be enjoying the holidays quite so much. I know from personal experience how utterly devastating it can be to watch couples around you celebrate their love…to watch parents light up at their children’s’ delights…all the while having no one to share this special time with. So, please, don’t let those fighting these inner battles, fight them alone. Join their personal army to defeat those demons and help each other be all that you can be. *grins* See what I did there?

Peepers

Tis the season to dress up in all sorts of festive outfits and the recent annual BVN Holiday Party was no exception. They had a themed formal of white and gold. Yes, I had to wear another formal. Lucky for me, I have a weakness for the gowns at Just Because, so I had a few to choose from…even if they make me itch. *laughs* Okay, not really…well, not in Second Life, but I’m not big on formals. That’s just a bit froofroo for my tastes. However, I was a good sport and went to the party in a beautiful golden gown. In fact, my friend and fellow blogger, Caitlin Mirabella, took a picture of us in our gowns and she did a fantastic job. Though none of that is what is being showcased here.
You see, there were lots of fabulous blogger prizes being given away at random and I was the lucky winner of a three month blogger gig with Avi Glam. To be honest, I wasn’t all that familiar with the brand before hand. That has certainly changed and just in time for my adventure with close ups! You see, Avi Glam is best known for their amazing eyes. I’m a sucker for some pretty eyes, so I leaped at the chance to scoop up some new peepers! Be on the look out, because I will be showing off plenty of beautiful eyes in all my close ups.
