I'm Still Fighting For Peace

    “My spirit. This is a new thought. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it suggests I’m a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It’s not as if I’m never friendly. Okay, maybe I don’t go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but i do care for some people.” - The Hunger Games

Be Still

                        Without a struggle,
                                      there can be no progress.

                                                                  ~Fredrick Douglas

     I'm sure we've all had our moments when we wanted to try something new or do something we've already done better then the last time and let's face it, sometimes it is just plain HARD. There are days when I'll work on a project in either RL or SL and by the time I'm almost done and looking back at the results of all the time and hard work I've put in, I'm saying to myself,"Wow, ok...this is either going to be epic or all kinds of smh" lol. Other times we can get so anxious about how we are going to accomplish something or how it is going to turn out in the end that we can barely think straight and your brain turns into a big cluster of OMG. Why do we do this to ourselves? All I can say is, that when people have been kind enough to offer some encouragement or advice, what always seems to have the most positive effect is when I just remember to take a moment to calm down and be still. Even if it is just for a moment or two here or there, it's enough time to take some deep calming breathes and just exist outside of our own anxieties and worries. So I guess my message for the day is still...then close your eyes..and face the day. It's going to be alright.

      F.E.A.R has two meanings...
                                     Forget everything and run
                                      Face everything and rise
                                                                        The choice is yours


      I applied to be a blogger for the Unknown Hunt and was very excited when I got word that I had been selected. Hunts that involve a little mystery or the touch of the unknown are always so fun to do and are my favorite kind. How I view the unknown in RL however, can sometimes be a bit different. I must admit that I tend to prefer the expected over the unknown. Routines and knowing what happens next put me deep in my comfort zone, especially after a particularly stressful day or event. If I'm not careful I will sometimes get so entrenched in my little day-to-day habits that it almost freaks me out a little to change anything and that is NOT a good thing. Yes it can be great to maintain a sense of over all stability but at the same time, if we don't face or create new challenges for ourselves, how are we ever going to grow or overcome that which frightens or intimidates us? So I say let's pick a day to throw our carefully laid plans for that day out the window, take chances, walk on the edge of something a little without holding on to anything and leave your map at home. Make time for the unknown. You never know what you will find if you don't get out there!

Stand by You

Hands, put your empty hands in mine. Scars, show me all the scars you hide,
       and hurt, I know you're hurting but so am I. But hey, if your wings are broken
                       please take mine so yours can open too, cause I'm gonna stand by you.

                                                                                                           ~Rachel Platten

     One if the things I've always enjoyed about SL is the fluidity one can experience. The constantly changing landscapes and available skill sets can make being in-world very enticing for someone who loves to learn or has an avid imagination. Yet, underneath it all, regardless of what hobbies you cultivate and enjoy, it has always been and continues to be a strong social medium where people can connect to share ideas, experiences and emotions. In a place that can be so transient, it's easy to forget to show the people we care about that we value and appreciate them. Remember that the people who shared a significant amount of their time with you did so because they chose to; they saw in you something worth while and made a point of creating time just for you. We all have fallen short in these areas, myself being no exception, but I encourage all of you to seek out someone in-world this week, for no other purpose other than to say," Hey, how are you? I think you're awesome". Imagine how amazing the world would be, if we could all remember to do that a little more often.

Bohemian Rhapsody

     It doesn't mean to be in a place with no noise, trouble, or hard work
                It means to be in the midst of all those things.........
                             and still be calm in your heart

                                                                                                      ~Maya Angelou

     I think we can all agree that life can be hectic and messy and just make you want to grab your hair and scream your head off for a few minutes lol. When those moments happen for me and I feel the need to condense or ponder out some chaos, I like to go someplace beautiful and colorful and find myself a little hidey-hole to curl up in. If you're looking for a place like that in SL, I definitely recommend that you visit The Trace. From the moment you arrive, there is almost a tranquil spirit about the place; with a profusion of natural landscaping, pathways, and other fun surprises that can be great for just one person or if you are exploring with friends. This location is available through the generosity and hard work of Kylie Jaxxon and Elvira Kytori; who even allow visitors to rezz their own belongings with a group membership; which is free of charge. I can only say that, there is something about this place that makes me come back again and again. Today is a perfect example as, when I got here this morning, the sim settings were showing a beautiful and expansive sunrise. I stayed to appreciate it for a little while, feeling calmer then when I arrived, and after taking care of the needs of the day, here I find myself again, just in time to catch the last rays of a sunset that is so pretty it just makes you sigh.

Push It

The pain you feel today......
                   Will be the strength you feel tomorrow

 I decided at the beginning of this month that I was going to be ready to complete a 5K by fall. It sounded like a fabulous idea at the time and I was excited to get started. I had finished one once before, but 5 years and two serious car accidents later (neither of which I caused, btw) I was definitely NOT ready to just head out the door and show up at somebodies finish line. So 4 days a week, either right after work or right after lunch, I head to a park with a perfect set up for this type of run and get to it. The first day my run-buddy and I went, all I could think to myself was "OMG I'm dying! Screw this"! Yet one foot kept going in front of the other, and every training day my buddy and I do the best we can. So here I sit; it's late, my body hurts; and all I can think about is that there had better be an EPIC 5K available when I'm ready to run this thing! lol

So to everyone who is facing a challenge, no matter what it is, just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Take that pain or anguish or worry or whatever it is, and let it hone you into someone or something stronger than you were before. Your limits only limit you when you refuse to challenge them!
