Dead End

 

Dead End

“I left the ending ambiguous, because that is the way life is.” Bernardo Bertolucci

No, I’m not leaving. I want to get that out of the way, but it’s funny that not all endings are indeed endings. In a way, most endings are beginnings. In my experience, it’s really true.

Speaking of endings, I love this quote because well I’m not a fan of any ending. I like ambiguity, in all of its lovely forms. I spoke with a friend of mine today. I’ve known her for many, many, many…..well not that many years. I’m not 100 years old, after all. I thought the friendship had ended long ago. Then one day, it started up again. We’ve experienced similar things in life, which not many would understand. It wasn’t an ending. It was a pause. I share this story, because I think some friendships can do that from time to time. Everyone needs time and space for personal growth. So I’m fine with an ambiguous finale. And I’m going to leave that thought in the air to hang.

Now moving along, I think it’s time to talk about the outfit above. I bought this really sexy corset dress from Tres Chic and pair it with a jacket from Romp. I visit Romp every time it opens and I have a tendency to pick up a few things from Tres Chic. They have some really nice items this round. I think people should check out both. I’m wearing the makeup from Studio Exposure called Tumblr girl. I highly recommend this store. I adore them. I paired it with a gacha item that I found on the market place. I absolutely adore these boots and wanted them in black. They’re called Criminal Police Boots. I know there are some still available via the market place. If you like them, check it out.

Before I go, I want to mention Ironwood Hills, which is a wonderful spooky little sim. I’ve gone there many times for pictures. I thought it was time to capture a memory there and mention it here. If you’d like to check out the clothes or even the sim, look down below at my credits. Thank you for reading my thoughtful musings.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend or what’s left of it.

Be kind to one another.

Violet ♥

Love Thyself

 

Love Thyself

 

“To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.” Gilbert K. Chesterton

I think the hardest thing to do is learning to love yourself, every inch of good and bad. I’ve spent so many hours thinking about this. I’m only one person in the world, but I think that loving yourself is one of those things that most people spend their whole life learning. We grow and change over time. I’ve done a lot of personal growth in a two month period. Maybe I can share a bit of fashion and personal growth in this blog. Maybe I can even convince a few of you to say something nice about yourself in the mirror.

This month, I am working on loving the unlovable, forgiving the unpardonable, hoping when it seems hopeless, and having a bit of faith in the eye of the unbelievable. Life is really all of those things–maybe not all at the same time though. Second life can help you through real life bumps and bruises, and sometimes it may be the cause of them. However, it’s important to remember this quote. Love really does mean doing all of those things. Maybe you went through a bump or two and found that person to love you through it. It’s important to have those people, whether they are friends, family, or even lovers. It’s such a wonderful thing to walk with others, in times of turmoil–that truly is love.

I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I’m emotional and I never hide it. Sometimes that’s a good thing and sometimes it’s bad. But I have love in my heart for people. I’m flawed, but I care about people. I’m working on giving the same amount of love and care to strangers….but to myself. Remember to love yourself, when you feel unlovable. Forgive yourself, when you feel unpardonable. Have a little bit of faith, when everything feels unbelievable. Have hope for yourself and your life, when things seem hopeless and dark. It is the greatest gift you can give yourself–to love yourself. Because you can in return give that same love back to others. It’s one of the most beautiful circles in life–love.

Speaking of love, I am loving Collabor88. I love this dress by Zenith. I can’t gush enough about this latest round. You really do have to go and see it for yourself. There are so many wonderful events popping up around the grid. When things calm down a bit, I’m going to try and get into Rewind. Man, there must be some great finds, because my teleport always says full. Eventually, I’ll get there.

Oh a side note, I’ve been struggling with my online second life feed. It’s a bit temperamental. There are times, when it says failure to upload. I’ve written a ticket to linden lab and they put my name on a list of others dealing with the same issue. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to post normally.

Now, I’m off to edit a few saved pictures and set up my new, not dying computer. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

Be good to one another ♥
