Enjoy the moment

Enjoy the moment

I’m on a river in the middle of the water.

The sun is shining and life is good. The birds are singing and I’m alone just thinking about my day and what is new to do.

I was tagged in a post on Facebook today about a little house with a fence around it.

Fenced off from the world. Yes that’s me.

In reality enforced and in SL by choice.

It is no secret that I don’t tend to hangout with many people as often I’m just plainly busy. Lack of time is pretty much a huge decision maker as I work full time in reality and of course have to factor in relaxation away from a screen, life and sleep.

Not enough hours in the day you could say. BUT I’m also known as an island.

I tend to sit myself out to sea far away from crowds and love the time I get to just be alone and feel creative in world. I call it my wind down time and god me a very necessary time as often in reality I can become quite pressured.

My perfect SL time is actually either spent alone just dreaming or with a close friend chatting. Now and then I brace the social side but on the whole I’m an “island in the vast sea”.

Today I’m just a girl in a boat dreaming.

Sunday bliss

Sunday bliss

Happy Sunday and it’s not snowing here in reality. It’s just rain, rain and more rain.

I was up last night till stupid o’clock and I really don’t know why. Ok I do, I’m trying to change the region I live on to a snow one.

Every year I change my little homes and use all the prims in the world to make my home for the winter. This year I have region control and I really seriously have not a clue what I’m doing.

I stupidly assumed you pop the textures in and hey presto you have a snow region and an ice lake!!! Clearly not. I have icy sea and you can’t skate on it. You sink.

If anyone has any idea how the sea changes to a lake? Asking for a friend. 😳

In the meantime I released my visit to snow drops which is truly beautiful.

The snowboarding is so much fun and you really need to try it sometime.

Mmmm K my KPop

Mmmm K my KPop

I actually kinda feel these dances and I’d say because they’re so positively cute and fun.

Right now I really embrace the distraction of fun and I’m not averse to featuring dances over and over again when I feel them.

Today the world feels a little different with the last 24 hours and either way whatever you believe or wanted it’s really dumb to trash others views. ie the truly toxic insults I’ve been seeing hurled around Facebook in both my rl and my virtual realms.

Let’s face it that dude is a meme that keeps on giving but that’s him. He has always been that meme.

Hating on each other is pretty toxic and petty and really aren’t we all allowed in our democratic world to have freedom of thought and expression? That doesn’t mean to freely bestow hatred because of peoples choices or political leanings. Smile then move on.

Winners or losers. It’s about being good humans and accepting we don’t all agree in this world.

Wouldn’t it be a really dull place if we did? Enjoy the memes but forgive the rights to have choice.

Win or lose well and carry on. Our virtual worlds are a place to drop this and forgive and just crack on with friendship.

Now enjoy this video because I certainly felt it.

Im ready

Im ready

I’m currently sat drinking tea and waiting for my dinner to cook. My avatar is in SL running rampant on her own and I’m legs up on coffee table relaxing.

If only I had the same setting as this picture. Sadly it’s not possible on my balcony unless I want to burn the building down..

Today at midnight the U.K. goes back into a tighter lockdown.

I’m feeling a little sad and wondering about 2020. This hasn’t been the best year and I wonder at what else it’s going to throw at us.

2020 certainly is a shite show. In fact it’s a car crash in the making and the parts haven’t stopped bouncing around yet.

Part of me believes we deserve this. We as humans are a selfish lot and it’s about time we look at ourselves and think about what really is important.

I think we have lost our way a little. Ok a lot!!! But we can find our way back if we all support each other and put our voices to the test.

Stop saying the right things. Start living the right things.

Then go sit by a fire at sunset and reflect at what we have learned.

Feel good about yourself

Feel good about yourself

The secret to feeling good is how you greet yourself in the morning. Your attitude to yourself and how you treat you.

I have been moving into a slump the past few months. (Im not out if it by any means) but I’m working on it.

There are many reasons for my slump. The main being what’s happening in the world and my fear of the things we appear to be losing as a result. Worry about our futures but also mine personally.

I kind of started to slowly sink into it, like I’m sure many of you out there may be doing. Being stuck at home and the constant monotony of our current existence. The losing the desire to dress up or even care about things that we place as important on a daily basis.

However I have come to realise when you give into that, you start to lose that feeling of how you do matter and you are important. Your sense of self worth.

Where is she going with this long winded set of sentences I hear you chiming.

I realise that actually what we should be doing is indeed doing the things that can make us feel good even though our movements are limited.

Starting off with that look in the mirror first thing in the morning. You know the one. Where you see yourself and say oh Jesus in your heads.

Instead you need to look at yourself and really see beyond that at who you are and how much you matter. Then treat yourself in that way. Treat you like every day is a good day and you are greeting the world.

Put your best smile forward, brush those teeth and dress as you would have been prior to all this nonsense.

So every day I am practising this, getting back into habit and it does make a difference.

Don’t get me wrong it’s not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly way better than allowing myself to slip into a depression.

Try it.

I love a bit of head

I love a bit of head

Honestly I love my Catwa HDPRO head. Love it!!!

The fact that now Not only have I got (from my point of view) gorgeous skin for it. ARTE have now released some brows and eyeliner for it.

I think I look rather good today if I must say so myself.

There is no visual artistic photoshopping work to my photo. Just a plain very little touched photo. So what you see is what you get. Which is always how I prefer to see things.

Today the Steele blue eyes from ARTE are verging on the greeny spectrum and I love how they look.

Will I be changing eye colour permanently? Well you can wait and see.

In the meantime, someone reading this not from SL will think I’m a little bat shi💩 crazy.

They could be correct.

Goodnight all and sleep tight.

Too much going on

Too much going on

Sometimes the pace of life seems to run at a speed faster than we can keep up.

But if we plan then we can beat the clock and catch up.

I’m not catching up. So I’ve taken myself to bed in the hope of getting some sleep.

Deep down I know that will be short lived when the housemate comes home. She has no filter of any sort and a lack of respect for my personal space.

I could sit and tell you how my housing situation is troubling me but I shall spare you that woe.

Today feels like there is so much on top of me that even creating a video I decided not to do.

My grandson Mason was sent home from school today as a child in the class and his family contracted and tested positive for COVID. So all children from that class have to now self isolate. They are only 5!

I’m still trying to get my head around what is going on around me in the world but also how incredibly selfish people are behaving.

Why send your child to school knowing he is not well? Why be so selfish and do that?

I need say no more.

You know how you would feel.

Just waiting right here

Just waiting right here

I’m into week 3.5 or is it 4 of my social experiment about face filters and how they really are cunning little things.

I say little because they come via a phone app or a camera nowadays.

The drastic differences to your appearance can be pretty shocking but even more so the concern as to how vulnerable as a human you can feel if you were to compare yourself to some of the imagery you see via such social apps as Instagram and YouTube.

I’ve certainly become quite observant now of anyone who appears on my social media that looks good. When I say good I mean with pore-less skin and looking more youthful than logic says they would.

Imagery that is not true to aspire to.

However here in Second Life, we can be whoever we want to be. Because we all understand that we are real people on the other side.

Today I’m that girl next door.

I feel like the donut

I feel like the donut

I feel right now like I ate all the donuts.

I haven’t, I just feel like it.

As a woman who has always questioned why in life. I am right now asking why why why do we every single month have to go through that feeling of mood swings, bloating, stomach pain and let the list go on. Why?

We simply have no choice, well some of us. Others are lucky to not have that experience each month and in my next life I want to sample being one of them.

I’m 54 years old and I’m sure menopause is in transition right now. But, whilst that is happening I still get all the feelings of being 13 again when I used to disappear to the medical room at school and lay down.

I guess that’s life and it’s the way it is. But why????

Now on that note enjoy your Saturday and don’t eat all the donuts.

They’re mine!
