Show me something

All along it was a fever
A cold-sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something”
He said, “If you dare, come a little closer”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
~ Rhianna – Stay ft. Mikky Ekko

Disposable

In the days of being targeted from every direction with ideas, suggestions, manipulations, politics, religion, ….oh it goes on and on…its harder than ever to be true to ourselves. It’s also more important to try. We have to listen to our gut instincts and not be stupid. Stupid is knowing you shouldn’t do something and doing it anyway. So, when we knowingly do something that we know if going to hurt someone that we claim to care about…well, we’re being stupid. We’ve all been hurt by someone we trust, so why do we turn around and do it to someone else? It doesn’t make sense and there’s simply no justification for it. Being reckless and careless with our friendships simply shows everyone around us that we don’t really care about them. I have a hard time believing we are being true to ourselves when we treat other people as disposable, because treating others the way we want to be treated was one of the first lessons most of us learned about socializing. I know I don’t want to be treated like my friendship is disposable, do you?

Do I Wanna Know?

“Do you ever get the feeling that you can’t shift the tide
That sticks around like something’s in your teeth
And some aces up your sleeve
I had no idea that you’re in deep
I dreamt about you near me every night this week
How many secrets can you keep’
‘Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
When I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep”
~ Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?

Safe Place

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. Maya Angelou

I think that’s true for most of us, even in SL. I know for me, I like having a space that is just mine. A place for me to go afk safely. A place to decorate with my favorite things. Even in a virtual world, I need that safe place.

Time

“Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.” ~William Shakespeare

I found this quote and recognized immediately the adage of time flying when you’re having fun. Yet, its not always when we’re having fun, is it? A work day never goes by as quickly as a busy one. Of course, those are the days we feel like we never got enough done, either. Time is a funny thing, isn’t it? When you’re a little kid you’re always waiting for something and it’s never here soon enough. Commercials are too long, movies aren’t long enough. Work days are too long, we don’t sleep long enough. One minute you’re 25, ten feet tall and bullet proof, the next minute…well, you’re approaching 50 and nothing turned out like you thought it would. Time…use it wisely, my friends, one never knows when that life long clock is going to stop.

Careless

“Whoever is careless with truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs.” ~Albert Einstein

This is a lesson it took far too long for me to learn. Once upon a time I defended the lies on small matters ready with justifications for other people’s lies, not to mention my own. Over the years, I’ve learned that Einstein was all too right. Those little lies are resounding red flags and alarms. I could have saved myself quite a bit of heart ache had I learned that lesson sooner. They say wisdom comes with age, but sometimes I think its really just a matter of taking too damn long to wake the hell up.
I suppose I could expand on that a bit. Whatsoever makes us feel it necessary to tell those little lie is should set off an alarm. We shouldn’t have to lie about ourselves in order to be accepted. We don’t need to puff ourselves up for outside validation. If we feel the need to do that, something is wrong. The same is to be said for accepting lies when we know the truth already. I’m not suggesting confrontation. I’m merely saying that we should take a look inwards and figure out why we would accept or project such lies. Clearly, these lies are indications that something is wrong.

Training Day

Mr. Snortle loved training day, because it meant he got his favorite treats. She loved the one on one time they spent together. It was always a good day. That one day a week, she dedicated to Mr. Snortle…Snorts for short. This particular day was perfect. The temperature was nice, there was even a nice cool breeze blowing the leaves and trees about. They had spent quite a bit of time outside that morning. She had taken him on a picnic. She laughed so much when he took off after that squirrel. “Just like his momma,” she thought to herself.
She’d even managed to pick up some fresh sunflowers for herself a friend. They were a special flower, as they reminded him of his father. He was coming over for dinner later and she thought they would be a nice surprise. Snorts just adored him, too. Today was going to be a good day, start to finish. What Snorts didn’t realize was that her friend was going to help give him a bath and as much as he loved playing in water, bath time was not his favorite activity. It sure amused her though. Plus she was going to change her sheets later and take a long hot bath herself. Surely, Mr. Snortle would appreciate that wonderful feeling of clean sheets after a bath, right?

Home

“Home is where my habits have a habitat”
Fiona Apple

I don’t do a lot of decor posts, but you can bet when I do I am crazy about the way it all looks. I have a few go to stores in SL that have long been my habitual furniture stores and so long as Cheeky Pea is in SL, Isla Gealach’s creations will have a place in my virtual home. I’ve watched her store grow over the years and I love that it has gotten the recognition it deserves. I could gush about her store for hours, but lets not digress.

I am continuously surprised by the amazing creations I find for my home across the grid and events like Uber are one of the reasons I have discovered some new ones. You like that little segue? LOL…If you haven’t gotten over to Uber yet, you’ll definitely want to check out the Desert Rose Set by Cheeky Pea. This set even has new animations and poses that will not disappoint you.

This round of Uber is a must shop, but then again so are Summerfest and N21. So much shopping, so little time…and lets not mention my linden allowance. I’m pleased as punch that I was able to tie some old stuff with some new stuff to make my virtual home reflect my spirit.

I was also fortunate enough to do the same with my avatar. Snagging this delicious lingerie set from Reverie and pairing it with accessories, both old and new. I am one happy little shopper!
