Today Is Where Your Book Begins

On Monday morning I did a live stream in SL for the first time in quite a while. I had forgotten how much I missed just chatting with people who are kind enough to come and hear me ramble about various things. It’s different than what I do on my Twitch channel. There, I play games and chat about what I’m doing in that moment. Somehow, live streaming on YouTube is different, and I can talk about any number of things. If you missed it, then I’m sorry, because I deleted the video immediately afterwards. Mostly because I did a playlist of current pop songs in the background and I didn’t need 37 copyright notices, but also because I wanted to chat about some personal things just to get them out there.

Someone in my chat mentioned that SL breaks are a good thing, because it means you can come back later and remember why you love this place. You can start again. It reminds me of a quote I really enjoy – “At any given moment, you have the power to say ‘This is not how my story will end.'”

No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten.

Fall Into Place

Happy fall, y’all! Well…okay, okay. I get that technically it’s not fall yet. I get that. But I don’t quite go by the real dates for things. For me, fall officially starts on September 1st, no matter what the weather is doing outside! And luckily my sister humors me, because she changed our sim to fall over the weekend.

I wanted to just thank some of you for the incredibly sweet IMs I’ve gotten as some of you have noticed me inching my way back into Second Life. Believe me when I say that I am more grateful than you could possibly know. I spent quite a bit of time in SL over the weekend and it felt really good. I want more of that.

Every time you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place

It Isn’t In My Blood

Hello bunnies! Do you ever hear a song and it just speaks to you? That’s the way I’ve been feeling about “In My Blood” by Shawn Mendes lately.

It’s not a secret that I’ve been away from SL for a while. Not away away, but away enough. There have been a lot of things going on and a lot of changes and a lot of…stuff. Anxiety and depression can be a real bitch, even when truly, you have every reason to be happy. I will admit that for a moment, I considered just closing the door on Second Life. Sell the sim, walk away, hit delete. But I can’t do that. I won’t do that. I’m not where I want to be in there yet, but it will come. If I just keep trying, it’ll happen.

Sometimes I feel like giving up,
But I just can’t.
It isn’t in my blood.

Choose Redemption

Hello bunnies! So it’s my birthday today! As most people know, I can be a little extra about birthdays. I mean, one year I had three parties in a week just to celebrate! But I think everyone should be a little extra about their birthday. Not everyone gets another chance around the sun, you know? Plus it’s like having your very own personal New Year’s Day. Who doesn’t love that “fresh start” feeling, you know?

But speaking of fresh starts, a new round of Whimsical has opened up, so be sure to get out there and have some fun!

Holding On Will Hold You Back

Hey bunnies! I hope everyone’s week is going well. I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for fall! I went and bought a bunch of fall candles the other day and I’m trying not to light them quite yet because there is something just a bit wrong (to me, anyway) about sitting in my pumpkin-vanilla-cinnamon scented house and then walking outside to be hit in the face with summer heat. But summer is still holding on, so I guess I’ll just sit in my orange and ginger scented house and hope that this month passes by fast. (Supposedly this scent is good for energy. I don’t think it’s working, but who knows.)

But what actually passes by fast are shopping events, so you really need to head out there and get some shopping done!

This Is A Story About A Girl Named Lucky

Hi bunnies! So I’ll admit it. I have been a horrible blogger this summer. I think there comes a time in every blogger’s life, especially for those of us who have been doing it for 10 years, where we just get in a huge creative rut. I have barely been in SL this summer because I have just felt burnt out. It happens. Hopefully, though, my intense love for SL will return. Until it does, I hope it’s okay that things in this blog are slower than usual. There are gorgeous things out there to buy, and you absolutely need them!

What Floats Beneath

Hello bunnies! I have been utterly obsessed with the show Riverdale this past week. It’s over the top, and a lot of it can be downright silly, but some of the cinematography is really beautiful. One of my favorite characters is Cheryl Blossom, the beautiful, red headed rich girl with a dark and mean family. My photo today is inspired by Cheryl, and also the beautiful set by Blueberry for The Epiphany! Happy shopping!

You Don’t Have To Give It All Away

Hey bunnies! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. There are just so many events happening right now, I can barely keep up! I’ve been a bit twirly and swirly in my thoughts lately, though. It’s hard when you have to fight the less-than-awesome parts of your nature, you know? I’m the first to admit that I’m flawed, but also so grateful for those who just kind of accept it and help me find workarounds for those broken parts.

But you guys aren’t here for twirly thoughts. Go shop and buy all the goodies!
