“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.”
Leonardo da Vinci
Whew, I have to say that the arcade was one busy place! It took me a few days to get in to shop, BUT I made it. I spent so much money this round too. There were so many cute and adorable items. I mentioned this before, but this event is one of my favorites. I always look forward to it. It’s worth it to go for a visit.
This month, I need the arcade like I need oxygen. I’ve indulged in some retail therapy in all of my worlds. I’m going to be honest. I did feel better, after I went out in real life to buy a smoothie and a shirt. Then, I sat down in front of my computer and shopped with one of my best friends. It soothed an aching soul. Before needing that retail therapy, I had a rough time with some stressful real life things pop up. Then unfortunately, I had some second life not so fun things pop up too. What’s a girl to do? I’ll tell you. THE ARCADE!!
If you find yourself having an unruly day, I highly suggest a much needed trip to your local gacha event. My unruly day ended with regrettable tweets. I mean you’re not living, unless you’ve had at least one unfortunate tweet. Fear not my loyal readers, I’m in better spirits. After that fateful day, I unpacked my dead dollz gachas and put on a pretend bridesmaid photo shoot.
To get some inspiration, I looked no further than one of my favorite novels–The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I wanted a rich, posh, and lavish feel. I could not have done it without those dead dollz gacha items from The Arcade –the beautiful dress, the mannequins, and the dressing room located in the back. This was definitely one of my favorite photos.
It may seem like an endless blur of difficult times or rough days, but I always tell people that people go through bad days, weeks, or even a year. However, those bad days, weeks, or year give us strength. They make us brave, when we reflect on those times. It’s also so important to smile through hardship, because dwelling on the unfortunate does no one any good. It’s important to focus on the good things in life, because the good things deserve your observation, attention, and realization–even if it’s a tee shirt and smoothie. Be brave enough to smile, no matter what.
Okay my lovely followers and readers, I hope you find a bit of happy in your life today–no matter what struggles or hardships you face.
Remember, be good to one another.
