“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
