Balance

We all need balance in our lives, an exchange that allows time for our jobs, leisure, socializing, and other activities. Making room for each area can improve our daily lives, as well provide outlets to pursue new interests.
Remember playing teeter totter or seesaw as a kid, trying to balance with a friend, suspended in the air, without moving up or down? But let one of you hop off, someone was falling on their ass HARD. The same can be true about a life that’s too imbalanced. Too much focus in one area leaves other areas neglected and eventually we fall on our ass.
Of course, its going to be damn near impossible to achieve that perfect balance in all areas of our lives, but if we can space some time from those activities that demand the most from us and redistribute some of that energy…well, we’ll be a lot closer to obtaining that balance that is so badly needed to enrich the quality of our lives.

Imitation

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”
― Oscar Wilde

There sure are a lot of imitations going around the grid these days. I’m not pointing fingers at anyone in particular, but whether you’re a designer or photographer or blogger….whatever your creative outlet is….know that you cannot stop them from taking your ideas and trying to make them their own. It happens to the best of us. Keep your chins up and keep doing you. Besides, God don’t like ugly and karma is a bitch, between the two…I trust that thieves will suffer their own personal fate.

What I Am

Somethings never change. *laughs* So, I have boxes of notebooks and loose papers filled with words I’ve written, notes I’ve taken, letters, poems, short stories, essays…just anything and everything. So, I’ve been going through a lot of this stuff, realizing that I don’t need a lot of this crap and since I’m sort of starting over, why not declutter my life before I turn into a hoarder, right? I got really tickled as I was going through this one notebook. I remember I had sat down with my friends and stacks of note paper. We sat around drinking coffee, laughing, talking, and whenever one of us thought of a good topic for me to write about or a question for me to answer, we wrote it down, folded up the paper and dropped it in this shoebox. The goal was to take out a piece of paper at least once or twice a week, and respond to the topic, date it, and maybe, if I felt like it, I would share with them later on. I didn’t.

However, I came upon that notebook and found an entry dated the 2nd of February, 1999. So, twenty years ago, here’s what I wrote in response to a topic that said: My Worst Habits

I’d have to say that my worst habit would be smoking cigarettes. I’ve tried to quit several times. Apparently, I have not tired hard enough. I also cuss way too much. It’s not attractive, ladylike, or professional Its unnecessary and I need to quit that, too. I procrastinate too much. I smoke too much weed. It has affected my memory and it makes me lazy. I don’t think I’ll ever quit all together, but I surely need to ease up. I have a lot of bad habits and I need to make a list of the ones I want to change, and if need be, replace them with more positive ones.

Just to drive home the point of me sharing this…I still smoke, I still cuss too much, procrastination has become an art form, and I still smoke weed. Though not nearly as much as I did back then. I think back then, I smoked no less than a couple ounces a week. *shrugs* I had a good deal in place and that was my life. Those were some good times, but the real point is a line from one of my favorite songs ever, “What I am is what I am…”
If you don’t know Edie Brickell & New Bohemians….check it out. Yes, its older than most of my readers, but like all the best music…it is timeless.♥

Like a watercolor about to fade

“My heart feels like the sharpest razor blade
I really hope this won’t give me away
‘Cause I’ve been drowning here for days
Like a watercolor about to fade
Every inch of me is there to trace
No secrets left here on my page
Underneath my skin, I see a change
Blood races right up to my face”
~ Astrid S – Paper Thin

Ingredients

I am such a sucker for decor and houses in SL. I took a break from blogging home decor for a few months a while back and I missed it so bad, I had to return. I’m far from being one of the top home decor bloggers, but I can promise you that it tears at my heart each time I build a scene and tear it down. However, once in a while I come across things that scream to me that they should be together. That is exactly what happened to me when I saw this kitchen set at 6 Republic and then saw this skybox from Toro. There are only a couple of days left in that event, so if you don’t make it, be sure to swing by Seraphim to see what you missed, then hit up the mainstores to collect the ingredients you’ll need for your dream home.crave kitchen

Damn, you look good!

So, my desk is in my bedroom…I love my bedroom. I spend most of my time in here. The other day I was just feeling so tired and I looked over my shoulder, thinking I heard a noise and my bed just looked so comfortable that I spoke to it. What did I say? Well, you’d have thought I was talking to a lover or something, because I just sighed and said, “Damn, you look good! I want to be in you so bad right now!” *bursts into giggles* I realize how dirty that sounds, but honestly…my bed is super comfy and I really wanted to crawl in and never come out.
I did eventually crawl into bed and pass out, but it was much later in the night. So, what does that have to do with this picture? Well, I kinda sleep like that…oh I don’t look quite so sexy, my tongue isn’t licking my top lip, its usually just sticking out between my lips like a dog, except that dogs look cute when they do it. *laughs* So, when I took this picture I got amused and well, if you’re a regular reader or you know me…well…yeah, you know that mind works in very bizarre ways and you’ve just jumped right down the rabbit hole with me.
