Like us..................

Women like us rise above certain incidents and decide to heal ourselves,
our insistence on joy is a threat to those who devalued us

You can do it

Always be the better person.
Make your intentions pure.
What and who you are is what you'll attract.
Pain is inevitable and it will always exist,
but if you focus on understanding what you are feeling
and why you are feeling it,
you will overcome it.

What if............

What if we stopped complaining and feeling hurt
 and instead found freedom in knowing 
we can choose happiness always....
choose to be a warrior instead of a victim 
in every circumstance.

Is this the end......

Walks on the beach, watching the sunset. Setting out the picnic, listening while he crowed on about the future. Holiday is over. Thought he would at least come and see me before my train leaves. Will I ever see my crow again or is this sweater with his picture on all I have to remember him by.

Valentines

Whatever your plans are today, be happy and enjoy. Should it be with one you love in RL or SL (or both), or if it is on your own.  Be happy you are with the one you love - or be happy you didn't settle and either happy being single or waiting for the right person.

Love on a budget

If someone has plenty of money and buys a gift for the one they love, does it mean more than the person with very little who plans out something special. 
Home made dinner, table set out, then a place to snuggle while looking up at the stars. It might seem like love on a budget, but if you have someone who loves you enough to plan that out, you are rich.

The seagulls kept picking on him

My friend (the crow) is on a winter break at the beach, Sady Banks laughed at the idea, but really, crows need a holiday just like the rest of us. I decided to go with him for a walk , let him sit on my shoulder so the gulls cant get at him. They laughed at him too, the wee bullies.

You don't have to say you love me.............


I see your wounds where others can’t.

I see the heaviness in each breath you take.
I see the hooded, guarded look in your eyes.
I see you wandering aimlessly through the pain of your life.
You think and believe you are alone but trust me you are not.
I see you giving support and love to others despite your own trauma

I did it my way........and I will keep doing it like that

I  blog what I like, I have tried to please people by doing stuff I kinda hated but I struggled so I stopped that crap. My taste isn't the same as yours. What I will blog and how I will blog is is not the same as you would do it. Many have looked at my blog posts and hated them, I know this because of the many rejections I get from blogger apps. I also know others like  my blog because of the views it gets daily. A few have commented, many more have contacted me and shared their thoughts. I have even went to stores with people to help them find the item they seen in my picture and wanted to buy.  
All bloggers feel down at times, we get miffed at who gets picked when we didn't. We get miffed at wanting some things but not able to afford it all. Wishing we could take pictures like others. I have talked to bloggers on different levels and they all have the same grumbles. 
On the other side, I have to pick a team from apps and that means rejecting others. I hate that part because I know how it feels and I am making others feel that way. There is only so much space on a team and each team looks for different things. Some are brilliant for one thing I do but never would get into my other team. Such is life if you want to be a blogger in SL. 
Blogging is a hobby, a hobby has to be fun, it is not  like you are going to make money from SL blogging. If anything it costs money even when given review items. The key is to keep it fun and getting in a blogger team is a bonus. When on a team, show respect  and blog the things properly, making sure they can be seen.
 If you want to leave the team, let them know it is time to move on before going. Morals and how you conduct yourself is as important in SL as it is in RL. Things like that matter, you can take amazing pictures and get rejected because you have a bad reputation. 
I might not have blogged stores you like, items you like, posed them in the way you like, but that's ok, I did it my way.

Don't judge my weekend

If posts to Instagram, Facebook (and any of those other places post to)  people are all out partying, having the best weekend - living the dream. Ever wonder how much is real and how much was just that tiny second when the camera snapped.  Well, my weekend will not have me dressing up, hair done and out to party. I doubt very little of it will have me not wearing PJs. It will involve dog walks, telly, SL and snacks. The same as many others. I just wish RL had SL sliders so I could look like this when picking ups supplies.

....but I have what I need


She has started
to smile when her path is spinning
to laugh when life grabs at her ankles
pulling like dead weight.
She has started
to trust in the ways of the world
to release her hold on what she cannot control
heartache, hurt, change.
She has started
to realise that her body is beautiful,
her mind strong, her feet on steady ground.
She has found
the only thing holding her back
is the doubt in her own mind.

Let Me Be Free

Let me fly away from ........
my mistakes
people I've hurt
people who want to hurt me
the prison in my mind
my thoughts
my fears
Let me break the chains that tie me to my past
Let me be free

Come chill with me

This style is more American than British, I wish they built houses like this here. The idea of sitting out on the porch is dreamy. Give me a rocking chair and my knitting, some music playing. Watching a few dogs run and play - perfection. 
Best part about this house in SL,  it is perfect for those changing their land to spring, this house begs for plants and flowers but when winter comes again, just pop on the snow add on and there is nothing more to do.
While landscaping it is worth using stuff from Little Branch, with one touch you can change you tree to whatever season  it is. Saves a ton of work having to keep lifting stuff and rebuilding. Spend more time enjoying the space with people that mean something to you.

asking yourself why you do it.

And even though I will continuously ask someone to find me
And even though I will continuously whine about trying to be found
I would rather be lost

I am not, I am...

I am not everything that has happened to me,
I am everything I became while I healed.
Stronger but softer.
Focused but not obsessed
A teacher but still a student.
I am not broke,
I am beautiful.
I am a survivor

Last Snow

I got a note card  letting me know the sim I live on is being changed to spring. So I guess this is the last fall of snow.  I am not complaining, I am bloody lucky and I know it.  I have a perfect spot  to put any house I like and do what I want with it. The whole sim gets changed each season and it do not cost me a bean. I do  not deserve  such kindness from my lovely friend who owns the space, but I am so grateful for it. Now to run around and enjoy the different sims before they all change , though I do wish at least one would remain forever snow, maybe even add some of the stuff in the picture to the land.

Can I curl up now

Something I hear often from Slers is the struggle with time zones. To many of us sit up far to late into the night and then struggle the next day to wake up. That is if we even got some sleep. I have been trying to tackle this head on as it got out of hand. It was to the point I wanted to go to bed at 7am in the morning which meant so much of the day would be lost. I kept on going that day until I could stand up no more. So this week I have been making sure if I am not in bed by midnight I go  no matter what I am doing.  It has been brilliant in such a short space of time. So if you are facing the same problem, deal with it  as soon as you can. To be in SL at night means you are not living your RL during the day
