Through these city nightmares you’d walk with me And we’d talk of it with idealistic assurance That it wouldn’t tear us apart We’d keep our heads above the blackened water But there’s no room for ideals in this mechanical place And you’re gone now Through a grimy window that I can’t keep clean Through billowing smoke that’s swallowed the sun You’re nowhere to be seen Do you think our desires still burn I guess it was desires that tore us apart There has to be passion A passion for living, surviving And that means detachment Every-body has a weapon to fight you with To beat you with when you are down There were too many defence between us Doubting all the time Fearinf all the time Doubting all the time Fearinf all the time That like these urban nightmares We’d blacken each other skies
We could get lost in the purple rain Talk about the good old days We could get high on some pink champagne Baby, let me count the waves Let me love you like a woman Let me hold you like a baby Let me shine like a diamond Let me be who I’m meant to be Talk to me in songs and poems Don’t make me be bittersweet Let me love you like a woman
“Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.” ― Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

You can take everything I have You can break everything I am Like I’m made of glass Like I’m made of paper Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
Life is messy. There’s no doubt about that. Anyone with pets or children will attest to stepping in something questionable in the middle of the night. Nothing will throw off your day faster than cleaning up a mess like that first thing in the morning. Clearly, life isn’t perfect, but rather than compare our lives to those we see on our lovely screens…I think its better to embrace it. I know my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be and I changed my ideas about my life several times over the course of my life. Not once did I envision my life to be what it is now. I jokingly said I’d be a fat old woman who hates kids and has a bunch of cats. I don’t even have that! I mean, I don’t LOVE kids, but I surely don’t hate them. Ok, I am fat, so I got that goal down easy enough. Wait, was that a goal….oh god, I manifested that shit! Fuck me. Well, ok, so what. I’m fat, I got a grocery list of health problems and no insurance. I’m still here. I have rather decent roof over my head. *looks down at my fat body* Uhm, clearly, I have plenty to eat. *laughs* I have two running cars. I have one tiny feline terrorist and the most perfect smartest dog in all da world. And I still have my wonderful, albeit crazy, Mom. I am freaking blessed! Sure, I struggle financially, but it sure could be worse. My condo and my cars are paid in full. That’s a true blessing. As Thanksgiving (yes, its a U.S. holiday) comes sliding around the corner, I have a lot to be thankful for and I’m thankful that I do. Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I think its a nice reminder to take some honest inventory of the blessings in our lives. It’s easy to forget those blessings as we go about our mundane daily routines. If you’re blessed enough to be reading this, it means you’ve been blessed with a little bit of time and the luxury of internet. While, I’m not so sure you need to be grateful for reading my ramblings, I’m pretty sure you’ve got your own plethora of blessings to behold. Oh…and don’t think I forgot you. I am very very grateful that you have taken that little bit of time from your life to read my words. More grateful than I can properly express, but Thank You.♥
I got ahead of myself when taking this picture. I totally meant to change my hair. In editing it dawned on me that this scene was looking like one of those from a movie where the girl always looks on point. As people magically wake up with perfect hair and make up. Let’s not even talk about how pristine they are while working out, barely sweating at all, just a glistening…as if they have been sprayed with light iridescent oils. Well, this picture is in between and instead of reshooting, I figured I’d just have a laugh at my own mistake. I’ve gotten used to laughing at myself over the years, so this is nothing new.

I opened my sim to the public yesterday and I cannot begin to tell you how sweet people have been when visiting. I surely hope it stays that way. People have been both generous and kind. And I’ve managed to scare a few with some little hidden gems I have around the sim. *giggles* It truly is wonderful to see people visiting the sim. It makes me feel good that they want to see it and experience it for themselves. None of that really has anything to do with this picture, but I did take it on the sim….in one of the three houses that are currently there….for now. I will be changing the sim all the time. I already want to tear down one of the houses and do something else. *laughs* For now, I’m just enjoying life…as you can see. There are lots of changes on my horizon and I’m excited about each and every one of them.

It’s 5am and my 74yr old mother is dancing through the house singing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” I don’t even think she realizes what she’s singing, but she’s doing a well enough job that I recognize the song. I just pulled up the song on YouTube and she comes running in asking how did I know she had that song stuck in her head. *cracks up* Well, Mom, you tend to think out loud…so its not that hard to know what you’re thinking. God, I love this woman!
