“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.” Leo Buscaglia
Today has been not so great inworld. I wrote a blog, but decided to delete it, after I was given a not so great response, after telling someone that I missed talking to them. They’ve been away from second life for a little while. I was trying to be nice. Granted, it seemed to come out of the blue. I got the response of second life pulling away focus from where it should be and that being great for some people. I took it kind of personally.
This blog has been incredibly difficult to write. I’ve been met with upset and unhappy people today. I’m really just trying to write a blog post and say hope you are all doing fun things. Yet, I feel myself getting angry at some residents lately. There is no other way around this. I’ve decided to let others peak into my world, because I think it’s important.
I’ve debated and debated talking about the cause of some of my stress–and the cause of the under tone of my blogs. Honestly, after that encounter, I feel like it may be worthy to share my life a little bit. Basically, I need surgery. It’s not something that I have to get right away, but I do need it. It’s not a life or death surgery, but I’m not exactly looking forward to it either. I’ve had to tell friends and family. I’m trying to hold off, until after the holidays. So you may see me afk or online at weird times. This hasn’t been easy on me.
Second life can move your focus away from real life. However, if second life makes me forget day to day pain and discomfort, well I’ll take it. Yes, I’m online a lot, but I have not forgotten about real life. I’m swimming in real life–up to my eye balls in it. Yet interactions like that, they’re difficult. Honestly, I can’t do a whole lot right now. In second life, I can shop, talk to friends, and go to events. These are all very difficult things for me to do in real life–especially right now. I’m going to ask residents to be kind, patient, and understanding right now.
In short, I took this picture at Corlevoli Beach because I love the beach. I’m not able to go this year, so I wanted to feel summery in second life. There’s a lot of things that I miss, but I can do it here in second life–and pretend. It’s not fun sitting home sometimes, but this helps. What also helps is the many designers who make it possible for me to pretend that I’m on a beach. For example, Stories and Co made this really cute summer dress called Ginny. It comes in different colors and patterns. If you love it as much as I do, it’s available at Collabor88.
I often hear people say if you’re missing something in real life, you go to second life. This is my chance to poke fun at this. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time.
Yes, I’m missing something in real life—it’s cartilage. Hopefully, it inspires some laughter.
Remember, please be kind to each other. You have no idea the struggles that people go through.
