Spring

 

Spring

Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate betrayal of the body when it rebels against itself. You always worry about charlatans. We found that specialists did not know as much as we thought.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter!!! I know that it has been awhile, since my last blog. I have a good reason. I promise. This week I came down with a cold or allergies. In the midst of medical tests, I feel ill–very, very, very ill. Unfortunately, residents have messaged me and I have missed their greetings. I’ve taken some medication and I just feel plain wore out. This time of year, I usually deal with some type of sickness. I’ve been under tremendous stress both in real life and in second life. I really want to have a good day, but alas I have to wait for my good days.

As a result of everything, I found this quote by Charles Bronson. I have to say that I can relate. I can’t breathe. I’m wheezing. I’m taking medication on top of other medication. In the end, I’ve slept all day. So please bear with my slow and moody blogging days. Eventually things will get better, right? They have to. I’ve hit my emotional and physical rock bottom. The only place is up–hopefully.

Despite my body betraying me, this month has been excellent for shopping and finding a new SL home. The epiphany just opened up, as well as the pose fair. So I am completely broke after shopping and paying tier. However, I am totally okay with that, because I was in some desperate need of retail therapy. I headed over to the epiphany and won this beautiful dress by Zenith called a Spring Vest Skirt. I won the color in sky, which I normally don’t wear. I really like it though. I paired it with some fun hair from a previous hair fair and some of my favorite Izzie’s makeup. Voila, I had the perfect Easter/spring look. I also did a little decorating. I moved inworld too. I was pretty proud of my decorating skills, so I decided to snap this pick at my house. Sometimes, you just have to move inworld. I really needed a big change.

Moving on to other important inworld happenings. Maitreya had some really exciting updates!! There was an update for the Maitreya body, Lara. The body now comes with Bento hands. I am so incredibly pleased with mine. While I like the hands from Vista, I have a lot of nail polish appliers that I’d like to use with my Maitreya body. So if you haven’t updated your maitreya body, I highly recommend that you do. It’s so incredibly worth it.

Okay, my loyal readers, this is where I leave you to check out my credits. I am off to put myself off to bed.

Be good to one another.

Violet xoxo

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” Buddha

In the past few weeks, I’ve thought about happiness. It’s a subject that always plagues me a bit. How do we find it? What does it look like? How do we keep it, once we find it? In any world, we seek it. My happiness may look different to another. What works for me may never work for the person beside me. And some people struggle with it by no fault of their own.

I’m talking about happiness today because I think second life can bring happiness to those who need a bright light. You never know a persons darkness, but you can decide not to add to it. Be the flame that helps others and not the howling wind. Maybe I write this as a reminder to others, but maybe…just maybe I write this blog as a reminder to myself too. We all need a reminder now and then.

On a lighter note (see what I did there 🙂 ), I found this bright and colorful dress at the latest Collabor88. I really adore it. It’s by The Secret Store and called the sylva dress. It comes in array of color options, if pink isn’t your thing. I really like Collabor88 and look forward to it every single month.

Usually, I never mention furniture in my blog, but I really have to mention this bed. It’s by one of my absolute favorite companies–+Half Deer+. They created this wonderful bed called the Dreamrose Princess Bed. It was featured two Collabor88’s ago. I waited to put this bed up, but I really shouldn’t have. I absolutely love it. I see myself using it quite a bit.

Speaking of things from past events, my skin is from the previous skin fair. I always see skin from YS&YS, but never pick it up. This year was different. I decided to pick up some new skin. One of the things that draws me to SL is the ability to change my look–from clothing, hair, and skin. I like being able to change once in awhile. I have freckles, which is nice. I decided to give up some land and vacation at a beach house. Sometimes you need a change of scenery for a new perspective.

Find your happiness with the people who surround you. Be kind to one another. And know that no matter what happens on the roughest of days, tomorrow is a new day and there’s always an opportunity to find happiness.

Okay, I’m drifting, so I’m going to wrap this all up with credits and put my weary self to bed.

Be good to one another

Violet xoxo
