Days

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sometimes, we don’t have the best of days. It seems like a lot of my friends have come down with colds or just don’t feel well in general. And I myself sort of fall into this category. When I wasn’t feeling well, I found this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Even on a crummy day, there’s always something about trying to maintain a positive attitude that helps. Unfortunately, I’m not the best at keeping a positive view of things. I knew that he was right though. You can’t drown in the bad. Sometimes you have to wake up the next day and start over. Hopefully, my fatigue and pain will give me a break, but I still had a pretty good day.

Speaking of breaks, I took one inworld and I headed over to The Season Story. A friend of mine created an awesome jacket above. It comes in different styles of materials such as shiny, and hologram. There are so many colors available for purchase. This particular texture is only available in the fatpack, but all of her jackets are amazing. I have been falling in love with her products and I know you will too.  Again it’s from The Season Story by Eliavah called Dooboo sweater. I also bought the lipstick from mudskin called Woo hee. I can see this as one of my go to lipsticks. Finally, I tried my luck at the Pink Lion gacha for my nail polish and it’s name is humorously called Liars. If you like my style, check out the credits below.

Be kind to one another.

Cheers,

Violet XOXO

P.s.–I’m ending this a bit early to head to bed.

I'm half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times. Lady Gaga

 

I’m half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times. Lady Gaga

Everyone needs a fantasy. Andy Warhol

The two quotes above, I couldn’t agree with more. For me fantasy gives me an opportunity for self expression. It’s also nice to keep that playfulness of imagination. Andy Warhol was right. We do need fantasy. We need to escape, give us strength, and to let our mind wander and wonder. Nights with some of my favorite fictional characters make an appearance in my second life photos. The land of fairies definitely inspired this picture.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. It’s nice to read the comments on a picture and see the story in the eyes of another. I had a wonderful person congratulate me on my capture. When I look at this picture, I see an unrestrained mythical beast laying at my feet, while I give light to our surroundings. BUT, it’s the best part of fantasy. It’s the interpretation in which we see through the words and imagery before us–much like second life.

You see, for some, the stories are important parts of their experience in second life. We could be anything that we want to be here.So if you need to live in a soft world for a day, you should find that mythical soft spot and soak it up like a sponge. I did, when I took this photo. It’s everything that I enjoy in second life. Remember the impossible can become possible here. We just have to discover it.

To make those dreams in pink come true, I made a quick visit to collabor88 and found this wonderful dress, gloves, and even hair. My dress and gloves were made by a company that I adore–Zenith. My hair is from the fabulous trendy company Little Bones. If you want to make your own fantasy world with this outfit, please check out my credits below.

Be Good To One Another

Resolutions

All of us every single year, we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives. Steven Spielberg

 

“All of us every single year, we’re a different person. I don’t think we’re the same person all our lives.” Steven Spielberg

I hope everyone had a really happy holiday and a good start to the New Year. It’s always nice to visit family and friends this time of year, but I also really like just being home and in my own bed. The holidays rolled through just as quickly as the Christmas music rolled into the stores. I’m sad that the visits are done, the presents are unwrapped, and only crumbs remain of the cookies, but I’m glad to get back to blogging and taking pictures too.

This next year will have its own ups and downs. Some I know are ahead of me and some I don’t. Those ups and downs though help to create the person that I am today. I am not the same person that I was a year ago. I’m not going to be the same person, six months from now. Life is truly about growth. I’ve done a lot of it in the last year. And I’ll continue to grow.

This is the time to think about our future. In February–March (if not earlier), I will undergo a Fulkerson Osteotomy. Some of my friends inworld have been privy to this information. I wouldn’t mention it, but I will be taking a break from sl to have it done (a week or so, until the initial pain dies down a bit). It’s a painful surgery with a long recovery. Meaning, I’ll probably be spending some of that time here. I did get sick over Christmas break over medication. Since that day, I’ve thought about this post and whether or not to discuss it. I don’t want it to come as a shock. I appreciate all the well wishes and kind thoughts. It means a lot to me.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. I’m scared. I’m nervous. And my only New Year’s resolution is to kick ass in physical therapy and gain some movement back, along with pain reduction. I’m a tough cookie.When that date comes, I will inform my followers and sponsors about it. I didn’t want it to come as a surprise. As you can imagine, I’ve dreaded this year. But I have a support system that will help me get through the rough parts, and even second life tends to let my mind wander to other things, which is always a welcome distraction.

Part of the ways I get my mind off things is to go to Uber every month. I walk around and enjoy my shopping trip. My hair, necklace, dress, and even my jacket can be found at this months Uber. If you’re interested in my outfit, please check out my details below.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

 

“Christmas and the holidays are the season of giving. It’s a time when people are more kind and open-hearted.”
Gisele Bundchen

****Note… You can read a VSN interview (with pictures by me)  Here

This is my last blog for a little while. But don’t worry, I’ll be back after seeing my family and take a much needed break. The past two months, I’ve been busier than ever before with my blog. I’ve been featured in two magazines, and completed a secret santa blog swap with Sophia Harlow. I also took on two new companies. I’ve done a lot in the past two months, so it’s fitting that a little rest and relaxation is needed.

As the days get closer to Christmas, I can’t help think about all the changes that I’ve gone through this year. I’ve had a lot happen–some good and not so good. There are days where I am filled with joy and others that are difficult. Yesterday was definitely one of those days that tested me. Life will always be full of ups and downs–even a few surprises. But I’m looking forward to a few days of blissful sleep and spending time with loved ones.

If I could ask anything for Christmas, I know what I would ask for. Sometimes though wishes don’t always come true, no matter how bad you want them too. You may get exactly what you need, but not what you want. This also applies to life in general. In those moments, you can only be thankful for what you have and not focus on what you don’t. My heart is worse for  wear some days. Then there are days filled with happiness.

I wish you all a Christmas filled with bliss. Remember, be thankful for your health, food on the table, and all those little things we take for granted. I also ask that you be kind to even strangers this holiday season. You never know the impact that you may have on another. Please be safe and if you’re family drives you crazy….. walks are very good for the soul or a pair of headphones.

Take care everyone and be good to one another.

I’m off for an adventure into the real world.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

cheers,

Violet XOXO

My Secret Santa Sophia Harlow

 

 

My Secret Santa Sophia Harlow

 

Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior. Carl von Clausewitz

A few weeks ago, I signed up to do a secret santa blog swap. When I initially got the name Sophia Harlow. I’m going to be honest. I was extremely nervous and I was a little bit intimidated. I wanted to do her justice with this post. The reason is that she represents a lot of my favorite events that I go to. I’m very thankful and respectful for the work she does with them. My hope for this blog post is that I represent her in a way that she’s proud of.

Who is Sophia Harlow? She is the brand manager (not owner oops) for Blueberry and Vinyl. She’s the owner of Uber and the blog manager for Truth. She is also the co-owner of Shoetopia and a fabulous blogger. She does a lot for the second life community.

As you can imagine, I was nervous by her resume alone. I waited one full day to message her. I had to build up my own courage. I’m not known for messaging people like that. BUT, I did indeed finally say hi to her. From there, the rest is history

When I got her name, I knew right away that I would have this photo shoot in my personal home. It’s quiet and no one would interrupt. When she landed, my heart skipped a beat, because I knew that a conversation had to move past the words of hello. I had no idea what I would say, but I was hoping not to make a fool of myself. In the end, I did okay and I was silly for being so nervous.

After she landed in my home, we greeted one another. She confessed to looking at my profile. I had also looked at hers too. To prepare for the whole meeting, a lot of bloggers checked profiles for social media, flickr, and blogs. I was a follower of Sophia on my plurk. I checked out her flickr and her blog. However, in all honesty, I hadn’t gone through her plurk though. I wanted to meet her and not her plurk, so I reserved looking at it for a later date. After the meeting with her, I did go through and read a few posts.

Something in my profile caught her eye. A few weeks ago, I wrote about chronic pain in my profile. She revealed to me about her own battle with rheumatoid arthritis. I myself struggle with osteoarthritis. It is due to an injury.. I also have a loved one going through the battle of rheumatoid arthritis. I am intimately aware of the cruelty that it deals out to those with this diagnoses. As you can see, chronic pain is a huge part of my real life. I hardly talk about the effect it has on me or my loved one. It makes me cry, so I refrain from talking about it. I’ve gone through drug after drug myself. I’ve also watch someone go through failed drugs and infusions. It’s hard seeing someone in that much pain and not being able to take it away, yet wanting to wave a magic wand to make it disappear. And I had someone stand next to me, who understood that battle.

Sophia did not need me to explain anything. Instead, she gave me hope. She gave me compassion. As I sat there listening to her telling me there is always new research coming out and drugs, I took her words to heart. I sat and cried from finally speaking to someone who understands. She spent the majority of our time consoling me. I never had to go through much explanation. I sat and listened. I took every IM to heart. I will be forever grateful for that conversation. Thank you Sophia for being so lovely, wonderful, and gracious to me. I got so much more from the Secret Santa blog swap than I ever thought imaginable. Thank you again Sophia.

For the photo shoot, I chose outfits that can be found at this month’s Collabor88. If you’re interested in our outfits above, please check my credits down below.

Side Note–I will be writing one more blog post before taking my holiday. So you have me for one more picture and blog post!!!!

Be kind to one another!!

Cheers,

Violet XOXO

♥♥♥♥♥♥Note: Before I start to go into my post, I’d like to give a little reminder to people. Bloggers do in fact get benefits for the services they provide to companies and events. However, bloggers do not get items from every company on the grid, because they are a blogger. We, just like many other residents, pay for a lot of  the things that we feature in our blog posts. It came to my attention that this needs to be mentioned. Blogging takes time, money, and creativity to do the work that we love. I’d like to ask magazines to please post the credits at the end of an article, such as this one. It’s fair to the many designers who have worked hard at creating their wares. Also part of my job and maybe the most important part of my job is giving credit where credit is due. Lots of bloggers take time to gather information regarding, the slurl, the company, name of the product, and who created the product. It takes time for bloggers, and vloggers to gather this information. Blogging is truly a work of love. These five pictures took about a month to create. I went to various events around the grid and spent my real life money at events. I took time taking pictures, coming up with ideas for those pictures, and editing them. I know creating a magazine is labor intensive just like blogging is… and takes its own amount of time, but the importance of listing credits in the magazine itself is so important and respectful to the designers and event coordinators who work extensively to create the virtual world that we live in. Thank you for taking the time to read my note.

♥♥♥♥I would also like to apologize to my followers for such a long post. This is not my typical blog post.

This isn’t my normal blog post. I’m being featured in VSN magazine. Unfortunately, credits sometimes take a lot of room, so I was asked to feature them here. I’m very lucky that I keep records of all my credits, just in case such a thing would happen. So this post will be extremely long and I am sorry, but I wanted my followers to know where I got the items featured in my pictures, since I am a blogger. Again I am really sorry for how long this post is. I’ve worked very hard on these photos, so I am excited to share them with you. My inspiration for this photo was The Night Before Christmas poem by Clement Clarke Moore. I’m not a furniture blogger, but the article centers around the holidays. In my home, you can’t have a holiday without a decorated tree in the living room, so I decided to showcase mine.

Part of my Christmas has always included a day where I get in my car and drive around the neighborhood looking at all the lights. Before anyone judges me, my hometown is EXTREMELY cold in the winter and many people do this in my neighborhood. It’s part of the culture here. They even create a light festival, displaying extravagant display of lights for the holidays. All the proceeds go directly to the children’s hospital for kids with cancer. I’ve gone every year, since I was 13 years old. So when I think of the holidays, I’m always reminded of those cold nights with an array of sparkling, and twinkling lights of every hue.

Sometimes you see hope in those twinkling lights for a magical Christmas, despite the darkness of the night and coolness from the cold breeze.

Tis The Season

In my real life, I have two cats. Wrapping gifts with animals around me is also one of my favorite past times. Usually, I have holiday music on or a Christmas movie. I’m also surrounded by tape, wrapping paper, and fabric bows, while wearing something cheery and festive. All those little things always help getting into the holiday spirit.

Along with the holiday spirit, I always find myself a bit more positive and hopeful. I found Demi Lovato’s quote and it resonated with me. I’ve gone through many trials in the past year in all my worlds. The light at the end of the tunnel seemed to not exist and sometimes you have to read inspirational quotes to remind you that there is light, but you have to always keep working towards it.

It’s no secret that I’ve endured obstacles and challenges in this past year. A few of my blog posts lacking commentary. But even in the end, I’m glad to go through those obstacles. Some I’m still really dealing with and I will deal with them for quite some time. But I know in the end, it will make me….well me and maybe even a better person. Ellen DeGeneres got this quote so right though. It’s no fun going through those obstacles, when you’re going through them.

I chose this picture and this quote together, because snow is an obstacle for me–especially this time of year. I have to dig out my car. My joints don’t always like the cold. Despite those two facts, I can’t deny the beauty of nature. Learning how to over come adversity and still admire the beauty around you is the part that can make a person unique–and that’s what I think :).

Last but certainly not least, my last picture for the magazine.

I took this photo with a friend of mine. She let me borrow her avi. She went to bed and left her there in the pose for me. I’d just like to thank Alisha for letting me do that. I know not a lot of people would have done that for me. So I wanted to give her a proper shout out.

I think having fun is so incredibly important in life. I think laughing and having a good time is vital to the soul. Life is so incredibly difficult. Humor breaks up all the hardship and gives us a break. Despite whatever I’ve gone through in this past year, laughter and good times have helped me immensely–sometimes that means talking with old friends and new ones.

This concludes my magazine spread. I wish you all a happy and safe Holiday. I have one more blog post before I go off on vacation. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and please stay safe.

Be Good To One Another

Cheers,

Christmas Blues

 

 

Christmas Blues

 

“If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?” Confucius

I’ve had a roller coast of a ride these last two weeks. I’ve had happy moments in second life and hard moments in real life. It can definitely feel like a roller coaster ride. Sometimes in the dead of night, you start to worry. But like Confucius said, if nothing is wrong with your heart, then you have nothing to worry about or fear. He was right, but then again…Confucius was the one who said the quote. I can’t disagree.

In the last week, I’ve had my article published in Squeeze! magazine and I’ve been accepted by Eliavah to join their blogging team. All these wonderful things are happening in the world. I’ve had moments of great joy, reflecting on all of those wonderful moments.

Yet in all those great moments, I’ve had some really difficult things go on in real life. Then again life is full of roller coasters. They call it a ride for a reason. There’s ups and downs–and even a few sudden curves. I don’t always talk about those curve balls that real life throws at me, but they are there.

Sometimes, you have to tell yourself that you can do anything, so you can handle the curve balls of life. This also applies to second life. Just when you think you have everything figured out, it will suddenly change on you… mesh bodies, blog support closing, or even trying to get used to a new group inworld. I wish all real life curve balls were as easy as second life, but it’s not. And you have to go with the flow. I am always learning to just go with the flow. It’s a life long journey.

I’ve had a lot of changes happen in the past few months. It leaves me a bit blue. Sometimes I fear the unknown in regards to health or worry about those who are closest to me in my real life. Everyone around me is having a hard time. So I trust in my heart to over come worry and fear. But sometimes you have to be reminded that you have the ability to over come worry and fear. So I linked this Sia song to bring strength to those who need. Life can be hard, but you really can do anything.

Be Kind To One Another,

Violet XOXO
