It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings. I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

I get so frustrated with people who square off over stupid shit in Second Life. There are so many awful things happening in the world around us. There are people of all ages being raped and traded like toys among rich privileged pricks. Some are children and some of these children grow up…SOME…and some of those grown children have landed on the grid. No, I’m not one of them, but I know more than one. Put down your stupid squabbles over territories and virtual lovers. If you want to walk away, that’s fine, do it. Walk away, but don’t you dare drag their names through the mud for something you did or over some virtual sex or even something equally silly. Just stop it, already. You want to be a real adult? No? Me either, but here we are…that choice was taken from most of us a very long time ago. So, yes, stand up for yourself and walk away from those that make you unhappy. Walk way from them, but hold you head high and leave without making things worse. And when someone walks away from you and makes it perfectly clear that they’re done with you? Let them go. Don’t chase them down demanding explanations. Don’t insist that they listen to your side of the story. LET IT GO! Pour your energy into things that make your life better. Pour your energy into things that make the world better. I assure you that hate NEVER makes anything better. This world has more than enough of it already. Is your soul truly so dark that you wish to feed that monster? I don’t want your answer. Your heart does.
So, its my 2nd post with the new Fleur head from Lelutka…I’m still messing with the shape a bit as I try on different skins, but over all I’m super happy with the new head. There are so many changes swirling around me at the moment, not just the new head, but letting go of almost all of my decor sponsors was a huge deal for me. For almost five years, I’ve balanced both and blogged for some of my absolute favorite stores. Now, its time for this old dog to learn some new tricks! I’m having a lot of fun playing with different photography styles and angles….lighting, all that good stuff. And I don’t have anything specific to talk about this morning, so I’m just rambling. I probably should have done a song, instead. Oh well….it is what it is and it ain’t what it ain’t..lol.
Life is an adventure. Half of the adventure is the journey. As much as some of us (like me) enjoy our solitude, its also important that we learn to lean on one another. Enjoy each other’s company. For one reason or another, those we love may not be around forever. I’m not talking about death. I’m talking about people growing apart. We’ve all heard the saying, “People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.” We have to be willing to accept that change happens and sometimes people grow apart. It’s not always for a bad reason and we have to be willing to accept that its not always personal. Even if it is, chances are…their purpose in our life has been met. I’ve had many people come and go from my life over the years. I resent very few, because I choose to remember the good times. I choose to remember the good that came from that friendship/relationship. So, whether near or far, its important for us to be grateful for all those people that have been part of our journey and part of this adventure we call life.

Well, its official, I’ve changed my name from Sadystika Sabretooth to Sady Littlepaws. I’ve committed myself to being the cat lady. *nods* Its cute and I love cats. I relate to them. I like knocking things off shelves, too. Okay, I do it so I can get to them…I’m usually knocking things to the edge with a wooden spoon or something. Then I stand under the item hoping to catch it. The new name suits me…its closer to who I am now. And no, I’m not about to become a furry. LOL.
There are lots of fun new names out there and I can’t wait to see them all. I commend Linden Labs for choosing to do this while we’re going through so much. It would have been nice if they had given us a little break on the price, but all in all, I’m happy I made the change.
This indecision’s got me climbing up the walls
I’ve been cheating gravity and waiting on the falls
How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all
Our hope’s gone up in smoke, swallow your crown
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Choke! On a kiss, I thought I’d save my breath for you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m hanging on you
Give me some rope I’m coming loose, I’m pulling for you now
Give me some rope I’m coming out of my head, into the clear
When you go I come loose

It is so important that we enjoy the little things in our lives, just as we enjoy the milestones and major events. With the right attitude, we can find as much joy in a leisurely stroll down main street with our fur baby and a good drink, as we can going out on a Friday night with our friends. We simply need to take the time to really observe the beauty around us. A sidewalk sale might offer something that triggers a happy memory. A child’s laughter and excitement at being able to pet my dog could truly lift my spirit. Oh sure, I have clean up behind my pup, and carry that bag of poop until I find a trash bin, but I feel good about doing the right thing. I feel good about taking care of my pup and I feel good for showing respect to the city I live in. We never know what simply joys await us if we simply welcome positive experiences and reject the negative.
Quit trying to love me
I done told you I’m not the one
Baby please quit trying to love me
You should know you were just some fun
Can’t unlock my heart don’t you even start to try to get in my headIt’s dark and it’s black
I can never get back
To the way I used to love
My heart just ain’t right
But I try with my mind
But I I just can’t be lovedBaby please let’s make this easy
Ain’t too hard to forget about me
And after I’m gone
It’ll be just that easy
To get yourself someone
A little better than me
