“You don’t have to live happily ever after with every single person in your life in order to live happily ever after. Some unfortunate endings are necessary.”
― Joyce Rachelle

Hey, guys! I hope you’re all having a nice day! I myself am quite excited for the weekend. Mostly because I realize how close we are to October, October is truly my favorite month I find myself in a constant need for fall and fall related things. I can’t wait to cozy up with some warm chili and wear my favorite sweater and sip hot cocoa while I watch the leaves fall. I chose this quote for my blog after I saw it on twitter a few weeks ago. It’s helped me get through some dark nights.

I think we are never done learning about ourselves. I’ve talked a lot about things I’ve learned about myself on my blog. Surround yourself with positivity, give the better part of you some time to shine and be ready for the light it gives.

Speaking of light! My boyfriends favorite color is yellow which fits perfectly because even tho he has a grumpy wolffie face he has brought so much light into my life and continues to do so. So, what’s a fox to do? Take pictures behind yellow sunflowers of course! We are currently remodeling our sim which you will see on his blog. I never knew I could have this much fun taking decor pictures mostly because decor is something I would just walk past. He has taught me to kind of value those things in SL more.

I’d also like to thank the owner of AF for being so kind and lovely to my boyfriend. It’s so nice and I can’t stress this enough when designers of stores you love are kind people. I’ve met my fair share of designers who weren’t the kindest. I know my boyfriend is a new blogger but he truly loves what he does and his complete love of decorating and blogging inspires me to be a better blogger. So, let’s all be kind and good to each other and mean it.

Goodluck!

Hey, guys! Man, it sure has been a hot summer right? The heat is currently keeping me up while I write this. So naturally, I decided to do a picture with fire. I got most of the items photographed here at The Epiphany. It was a little difficult getting in but once I was in. I was in complete awe of the creativity of the designers. I had to stop myself from getting nearly everything because it was seriously so good!

Ok, I gotta sit my butt in front of a fan for a few hours!

Good Luck!

Hey, guys! Whew, am I the only one who gets so exhausted after shopping? In the past couple of days, I’ve been hitting the events hard. I’ve gone to TMD, The Okinawa Summer Festival. Hair fair. ALL THE EVENTS!!! I think sometimes we forget that shopping can be kind of therapeutic. well I know I do. Sometimes my anxiety gets bad and all I want to do is hide under my boyfriend’s arm.

I’m lucky I can do that. I think when you have those moments of anxiety it’s important to reduce as much stress as possible. So I’ve done that. I felt guilty at first. But I realized it’s ok to put yourself first.  It’s ok to give yourself room to breathe and re-adjust.

I really can’t stress enough to be kind to your friends who suffer from anxiety. Making a moment of weakness about yourself isn’t the best way to solve something that might already be hurting the person to their core. My boyfriend said something recently that has kind of stuck with me. I’ve gone silent only letting him in. As I often do when one of my anxiety episodes happen. Not out of malice, I find that sometimes people don’t really know how to talk to people who deal with anxiety it becomes something about them when it really shouldn’t be. Anyway. I’ve taken steps to be more social and found myself expecting the worst in people. He told me “There best attempt might not be ours.” He was right. As he often is. Him saying that allowed me to be more open. To be more social and crack open that social butterfly door just a little. So we went shopping. OH DID WE. I got this cool shirt from David Heather that came with pants and one of my favorite stores VRSION released an amazing Katana backpack. I paired it all with one of my favorite hairs from RH and the Tokyo-Ghoulish mask. I hope you all have a great day!

“A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being.” -James E. Faust

Hey guys! I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! This month has been a little busy for me. Not the overwhelming kind of busy. But the lovely busy that involves cuddles, Phone calls, laughter and warm tea. Also! I’d like to wish my fellow LGBTQ+ friends a HAPPY PRIDE! It’s nice to see that we can all drift in to a place like SL Pride HQ where everything we are is celebrated and respected.

Lately my life has been so relaxed. Theirs a calmness and a freedom of mind that being in love can bring and after the year I’ve had I’ve more than welcomed that in to my space of existence. It’s nice to let walls down and let someone see who you are, completely. I’m lucky I have found that.

It’s wonderful to have someone look at you, and you not wonder what you did wrong. But wonder what you did right. I’ve struggled a lot this year. I went on my own journey of self discovery only to find my way back home. Life is like that. People will let you down. People will hurt you.. they will say mean things about you.  But if you can find one person who can hold you when you can’t hold yourself. Who will wrap a chain and anchor around the sun and pull it up from the ocean when you are sad then trust me. You’ve found someone amazing. You can ask the sun if it’s a good day to shine.. at least thanks to my boyfriend. I know I can.

Hey guys! I’d like to start this blog post with giving my amazing boyfriend a huge thanks for this adorable baby fox. It’s a well known fact among my friends that I collect fox-related goodies in SL. I feel very special that my grumpy Wolffie can indulge in my fox obsession.

I’d also like to thank my close friend Wenda for keeping me company and talking to me about elbow-licking and poking people with sticks while I edited. It’s always a good thing to reconnect with old friends.

We all have friends that we sometimes don’t talk to as much as we should but when you do. it’s like you never stopped. I think friendships like that are special.

I got this lovely jacket from TMD. I have to admit (yes you know it’s coming.) Shopping has not been the greatest for guys as of late. I got the Belleza body and I was upset because it seems like designers are apprehensive to get behind it. I hope in the next coming weeks there will be more releases for that body. It’s kind of becoming one of my favorites. So I look forward to see what amazing things will come from it.

Alright, I hope you all have a great day! Good luck!

Hey guys! I hope your May is off to a good start! I know mine is! I’ve finally reached a place where my SL is a much calmer steadier place. It’s such a nice feeling to be able to sit down and realize that the bad days seem to get further and further in the distance of the rear-view mirror of your mind.

Speaking of minds. I think it’s important to take a moment to reflect on who you are. Weather that be through meditation (yes that sounds cheesy I know.) or even writing things in a journal. It’s important to shift your focus outward to in front of you. To not look at things strictly from behind your eyes but from the outside. I think when you’re able to do that, when you’re able to shift your thinking from ME to YOU. You’re better able to realize that sometimes you’re a little harder on yourself than you should be. You’re more able to forgive yourself if you’re able to shift the center of your thinking outward. It’s no secret 2017 has had it’s difficulties for me. I’ve taken pride in my ability to solve things.. to not just hear my voice but be open to hear others. Even though it’s been difficult to do. I could have done this step a little better in the past months. But really,  that’s what it really comes down to. The ability to look at someone and say I hear you, I see you and what you say. Matters to me. (yes I shamelessly quoted Oprah.)  I’m fortunate I have surrounded myself with great people. I’m happy at my ability to forgive others. Even if I struggle to forgive myself for my own mistakes. I’m learning.. I’m learning to handle myself better and to ultimately be kinder to me. I hope everyone is able to do the same. We could all stand to be a little more gentle with ourselves.

I’d like to thank my boyfriend the stank face wolffie for putting up with my messy set building even tho I know I leave a mess all over our sim. Oopsie doopsie oopsie.

A life in pink.

A year in pink.

 

2017 has not been kind to me. I’ve loved, I lost. I’ve grown and 2017 has changed me. I don’t feel like the same person I was only a few months ago. I’ve made mistakes, I’ve hurt people I never meant to. 2017 has taught me about maturity. It’s taught me to be more mature. To recognize immaturity in others. It’s taught me to be guarded in friendships. Simply put, not everyone is your friend, not everyone wishes you well. There are people who will smile in your face to only be a jealous wreck behind your back. And even when you kindly offer to help them. They’re too stubborn to accept any help that is not their definition of help… and it’s taken me a bit to realize that. I’ve spent my month away from blogging and happily on alts. Though it’s not something I’m hiding anymore.. I do appreciate the few of you who have been clever enough to ask me. :p

2017 has taught me about the good and bad parts of escapism. You can’t make an alt to run away from an unhappy situation because you will still be unhappy. You will still lay your head on your pillow at night and wonder. You will feel bad, you will happily swallow your own dread just to make someone else happy. Because you love them, because they love you. But is it? Is love hiding parts of who you are just to avoid an argument.. or an awkward situation is that love? No, it’s not. It’s manipulative. I find many people I’ve surrounded myself with were manipulative and lied. Not to be mean.. but because of their own insecurities. I’ve learned it’s ok to move on. It’s ok to leave someone behind because they can’t begin to understand the depths of things you need. So here I am. In my early 20’s. A mess, I’m flawed.. I’m jealous and insecure. I’m possessive and demanding. But I’m learning to accept my faults. I’m learning to line my cracks with gold and not look at them not as something destructive. But something that’s part of me. I’m sorry I’ve hurt people, but I refuse to be the only one at fault here. People don’t mess up, they don’t hide from people if people haven’t done anything to them in return. No one is innocent. And no one deserves to have stones thrown at them. You need to respect yourself enough to clean up your own mess, swallow your pride and settle your own beef. You need to learn boundaries and accept a situation you caused.

Someone I love told me recently “I pity you because you will never know what it means to love someone.” I wish they knew how wrong they were. I wish they had the mental maturity and inner strength to realize making someone a bad guy just to move on from them is never a good thing. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve kept things I needed bottled up because I loved someone so much I was ok with putting my needs to the side to give them everything. I’m an electrical storm, and I needed someone with the inner strength of a glacier to not be scared by my roaring thunder. I needed someone who would not waver in love to not be afraid of me when they see my fire streak the sky. I will always be there for my friends when they need me. But I also need to be there for myself more from now on.
