Angels Among Us

A funny thing happened on the way to the office…okay, I don’t have an office anymore. However, I was hanging out with my gorgeous best friend, Tracy Redangel, while taking these photos and trying to multitask. To be honest, multitasking is code for chasing squirrels and shinies…like checking Facebook. That led me to a YouTube video (Coldplay-Hymn For The Weekend) that my dear friend Posh had posted and it was a little crazy when I realized the lyrics and what I was wearing.

Here I am, dressed up like an angel in red…or Redangel…see what I did there? Then I hear these lyrics:
“Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up”

That’s when it hit me like a ton of cinder blocks for about the millionth time. I have the most amazing friends. I’ve been in SL for over 9 years now and I don’t think I have ever had friends quite like the ones I’ve got now. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a few friends from my gloriously dramatic nooby days, and my how we’ve all grown and changed (most of us anyway). Mostly for the better, I think. I know for me, I’m wiser about the people I choose to surround myself with and I’m occasionally wrong about some people. One thing that’s proven true over and over again is the old adage about people coming into your life for a season, a reason, or a lifetime. People I thought were real friends once upon a time have led me to some people I know in my heart are real friends. Lifetime friends. Angels that light up my world when I’m down. I really hope you all have some friends like that, too. ❤

Ready

You tell me that you’re ready but you just don’t know
My eyes are getting heavy and it’s starting to show
Never seen it coming, never seen a thing
Maybe I’ll get through what’s ever coming to me
~Kodaline’s “Ready

Sometimes we just have to walk up the line we thought we’d never cross and just step forward. Whether that line is the edge of something new or walking away from something that’s holding us back. Scariest of all, is that the line might just be one of the biggest gambles of our life. We have to follow our hearts and let ourselves step up to that edge.

I’m staring at such an edge right now and wondering whether or not I’m truly ready. Is it worth the gamble? Is it really a gamble at all? I’m risking the unknown if I cross that line. I’m asking myself over and over am I ready for the absolute worst consequences. What’s coming my way if I go…right over that line? I can’t know unless I’m willing to cross it.

ready

One thing I know for sure? I’m ready for a change. I’ve let other people determine too many limits in my life and I just can’t keep letting that continue. Its time for me to take charge of my life and do what I believe is right for me…even if that means it might hurt someone I love. *sighs*
