“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 ♥
