Amarantha

One of the many brands that I’m blesssed to work for and with is Apple Blossom. Dulce36, or I know her, Reyhan is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve had the pleasure to work with on the grid. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is still learning! I’ll admit that not all of her designs are suited to my personal taste, but one thing is for sure. The fit like a glove! I’m super excited about this Amarantha dress that she did for the Bonfire Bash edition of The Liaison Collaborative. It’s simple and plain, yet is just slightly hiked up on one side to give you a bit more sex appeal, plus the trim is incredibly detailed. I love dresses like this, because they provide the perfect opportunity to personalize the look by adding a few accessories. This is especially great for me, as I am an accessories fiend. I highly recommend you drop by the event before it closes on the 26th and try the demo. I’m sure you’ll fall in love.

Marathon of Possibilities

I have a tendency run a complete marathon of possibilities in my head with just about everything. It doesn’t matter if its something I’m excited about or something that scares me. So, if I meet a guy and everything is falling into place, I’m quick to think of all the ways this could work out in good ways, all while waiting for the penny to drop. I make myself absolutely crazy doing this. As I continue my therapy and learning to be mindful, I have been trying really hard not to do this. As it often leads to very hurt feelings for which I have no one to blame but myself. Listen, I’m trying, okay?
So, recently I met someone that has already made some serious improvements to my life. I ran the marathon, of course, and I got excited. Alas, real life has gotten in the way of my virtual dreams and the penny has officially dropped. HOWEVER, I’m super pleased with myself this go round, because I did not fall apart or feel that sense of devastation when the penny dropped. I just accepted the situation for what it is and have decided to just make the most of it. This person offered me some tools that work with my therapy tools and I’m hopeful about my own personal plan for a change. So, I’ve grabbed that silver lining by the tail and I am holding on for dear life. I don’t know how much time I have left on this planet, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to just give up. I’ve survived far too much to let life hold me down now.

Nothing new

Boy, boy, boys, boy

Stealin’ kisses from your misses
Does it make you freak out?
Got you fussing, got you worried
Scared to let your guard down

Boys, boys

Tell the neighbours I’m not sorry
If I’m breaking walls down
Building your girl’s second story
Ripping all your floors out

Saw your face, heard your name
Gotta get with you
Girls like girls like boys do
Nothing new

Last Hurrah

I’m done with the drinking, I’m done with the smoking
I’m done with the playing, I’m done with the joking
I’m done with the ladies, I’m done with the fellas
Just sayin’ (yeah)
Farewell tequila, so long margarita
And lady sativa, I hate to leave ya
Don’t want the pressure, I don’t need a lecture
No, thank you, honey, God bless ya
I know I’ve said it all before (said it all before)
But it won’t hurt to do it all once more
This is my last hurrah, once I start
I ain’t gon’ stop ’til I go too far
Last hurrah and it’s okay
Maybe tomorrow I won’t feel this pain

Who knows what I’ll be doing?

Things are changing everywhere. Not just the world as we know it with all the Covid19 stuff, but all around me. I’ve taken on more jobs in sl which is cutting into my blog time as well as other things. However, in an attempt to find a balance between all of my commitments, I’ve come to realize that my therapist was right. Multitasking is ineffective. I was so heartbroken when she first said this, but I decided to be open minded about it. I did as she suggested, by taking on one task at a time. I even tried to be more mindful about it. Ugh. She was right. I was wrong. *stomps her foot* Go figure.
So, with all of this going on, I will be making changes to how I blog and what I blog.
As much as I love doing decor, it is far more time consuming and often does my head in. So, I decided to cut waaaay back on my decor commitments. There are a handful of brands that I’m just not even close to ready to break up with…and it was a hard decision dropping four of my favorites yesterday. Alas, I will simply be a customer and continue to feature them when possible, without the time constraints.
I will probably write a lot less going forward. There’s a few reasons for this. One is that aside from not really having time to do it for every single post, most people aren’t really reading it. I mean, I’m going to do what I want…so I will still write from time to time, but for the most part, you can expect lyrics, quotes, excerpts or a quick quip about the items I’m blogging. Of course, I say all of this now….but give me a month or two and who knows what I’ll be doing. LOL.

Whatever!

This is probably one of my favorite things to say. *laughs* As people are always trying to tell me what I can and cannot do…or what I should or should not do…and to them I say, “Whatever! I do what I want!” And that’s just how it is…and I’m keeping it short today, cuz WHATEVER!

Staying Home

Staying home is not a new concept for me and my day to day life hasn’t changed much because of all this. However, I realize this is quite a struggle for some and that many people get extremely bored during this time. I wish I could share all the wonderful ideas for things to do at all…alone, but there’s not really not enough time, nor does anyone really want to read a list of stay home ideas from an sl blogger. I do, however, hope that you’re all doing your part to flatten the curve. For many areas of the world its only going to get worse before it gets better. So, count your blessings that you have a home to stay in and pray for those that don’t. The world is a scary place these days and we all need to do our part…now more than ever.

I won’t keep watching you

I won’t keep watching you
Dance around in your smoke
Who can flicker out?
You’re not the light I used to know
I don’t believe in safety nets
Strung below that make it alright
To let go
You gotta hold on

Or it’s gonna
Slip, slip, slip through your
Slip, slip, slip through your hands
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Oh it’s gonna
Slip, slip, slip through your
Slip, slip, slip through your hands
Whoa, whoa, whoa

What’s the matter?
You don’t have enough rain
To make up your storm?
Oooh whatcha look so sad for?
Where’s the light I used to know?

To love

You promised the world and I fell for it
I put you first and you adored it
Set fires to my forest
And you let it burn…..

…..And now the chapter is closed and done
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
And now it’s goodbye, it’s goodbye for us
~ Selena Gomez – Lose You to Love Me

Normally, I don’t write anything in addition to song lyrics, but occasionally a song comes along that hits you so hard in the feels. I didn’t copy the full lyrics, because this is one of those songs that you can clearly understand every word when listening to it.  Most of my friends know how much I adore Selena Gomez, but I’ve never had any special connection to her music. But this song…wow. It just shows how we so often lose ourselves in a relationship…without even realizing it.
With every word, I feel like she crawled into my head…my heart…my soul and captured the very spirit of what I’ve been feeling these last few months regarding the end of my marriage in real life. I can honestly say that I’ve never grieved a relationship the way I’ve grieved this one and I hope I never do again. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with and if you know me, or read my blog regularly…well, you know it just doesn’t seem like the type of thing that would destroy me. I didn’t think so either.
I’m coming out of the other side now…and I am finally finding myself again…after all these years. I’m not playing victim or pointing fingers. I’m dealing with my life the best way I can right now. That’s more than I can say I was doing a year ago. I am finally able to love me again.

Goodbye, Paul.
