A Life On Display

These days, its really easy to compare our lives to the lives of others, especially when so many people are constantly making their private lives public. With all these social media friends posting the best bits of their lives, its really easy to slip into a  state of depression. What’s important to remember is that we’re only seeing the highlight reel of those lives. We’re not being shown the 99% of life that isn’t beautiful and wonderful. Often times, what we’re being shown isn’t even real. Those happy family photos? Behind the scenes the kids hate their parents or the happy couple fights. Perhaps one of them is even cheating.
I remember several years ago catching up with a girl from high school on my RL Facebook. Her life looked so amazing. Her photos and descriptions on Facebook made her family look amazing. Two great kids and an adoring husband. The more we hung out the more truths that came out. She was a closet alcoholic having an affair with her ex-boyfriend online at night after her husband and children went to bed. One of her kids was special needs and really difficult to deal with. Her house was a complete mess. To be honest, her whole life was a mess. This was not at all what she portrayed with the photos and stories she presented on social media.
It turned out that she was nothing like the person she had presented herself to be and I couldn’t be around her, knowing that she was lying to the whole world. Honestly, it was the alcoholism and cheating on her husband that I couldn’t condone. I quickly distanced myself from her and started taking a closer look at what people presented on social media. What I learned from all of this is that we simply cannot compare our actual lives with the highlight reels of people we hardly know. It’s dangerous to our psyches and its not realistic.
With our lives on display, we all have a responsibility to be more honest with one another. With that I wish you all much love & laughter. ♥

Choices

“Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.”
~  Alfred A. Montapert

I think its important to remember that, because we are constantly faced with choices from monumental life altering choices to the tiniest things like flipping our hair or smiling at a stranger. Some choices are going to carry far more weight than the others. So, I think its important to remember those consequences as we approach the weekend.

Especially Grace, cuz her consequences are probably going to be a massive hangover and a freshly dug grave in the back yard. *smirks*

Kind Strangers

If your car has to break down in the middle of nowhere it never hurts to have a sexy mechanic working on your car.

On a more serious note, never let it be said that there are not some perfectly kind strangers in SL willing to help out another stranger for a few minutes. I had originally gone to this sim, thinking that I would take a photo in a diner or something along those lines. Then I say the classic mustang and a very nice looking avatar posed as if he were working on it. Sadly, his entire profile was in Portuguese, so to Google translator I went. One thing was certain, he was happily taken and didn’t like girls who disrespected that. Noted. In English (he can translate, too, right) I told him that I wasn’t flirting but would he mind staying put for a blog photo I wanted to do. He kindly obliged and the moment I was done, he poofed away. No friendships made, no advances from either of us, no more conversation….just two photographers passing in the light. *giggles*

So, I owe a huge thank you to  Hendrick Kos (SirAatrox) for being so kind to a complete stranger. It’s people like him that restore just a teensy bit of my faith in human kind.

What’s So Special About Mermaids?

I never have understood the allure of mermaids. I’m much more fascinated by the Octopus! Ok, so its half human, half fish….is it supposed to be sexy? Cuz I fail to see how they would have sex, don’t most fish lay eggs and the male fish comes along behind it and fertilizes them or something? *shrugs* The octopus, though, that’s a fascinating creature. Those big ole things can get through the tiniest of spaces. I don’t find them particularly sexy, but tentacles beats fish any day in my book unless its on the dinner plate.
