If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

Messy hair, dirty feet, and wild sparkle in her eye

We are the girls with the messy hair, the dirty feet and wild sparkle in our eyes.

One of my favorite childhood memories was going down the creek and playing in the water. There was a spring that fed it and waterfalls that made it that much more interesting and entertaining for a young, carefree spirit. I remember going back home and being soaked, head to toe. Mud covered my feet from the walk back home and hair was all a mess. I would do it all over again if given the chance, even now as an adult. Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty and let life lead you where it may.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

All the right Distractions

New Year Ramble……

So, I’ve been a little bit of a procrastinator with blogging this new year. Trying to catch up with things and get back to the normal every day routines of both RL and SL. I will say… That I’ve had all the right distractions lately. Some may agree, some may not.. and some would just hit the fucking floor.. but you know what.. It’s my life.. and I am so ecstatic to see what this new year holds.

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Caught Up in the Rhythm

Say something 1024.png

{Flickr}
~Everyone knows all about my direction
And in my heart somewhere I wanna go there
Still I don’t go there
Everybody says “say something”
Say something, say something
Then say something, say something, then say something~

Opinions, feelings, honesty, communication…
Communication. We are all looking for some type of validation from someone. Whether we choose to admit it or not.. Sometimes those words are given to us, whether we ask for it or not. Sometimes we just get caught up in saying what we feel is best.

~I don’t wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

But is it really a matter of just going through the motions or can we say what we truly mean. I know I’ve found myself wanting to say exactly what is on my mind. Fortunately, I don’t live my life in react mode. I’m able to evaluate the situation and look for those empty words left unspoken.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~Everyone knows all about my transgressions
Still in my heart somewhere, there’s melody and harmony
For you and me, tonight (whoa)
I hear them call my name
Everybody says “say something”
Then say something, say something
Then say something, say something then say something~

Living your life out in the open is a risk. We throw our hearts on the line and openly give anyone the chance to rip us apart. Whether it is through blogging, creating, teaching, public work… whatever.. We leave pieces of ourselves with the ones we run across. They begin to learn who we are. They grow close to us, feeling like they know who we truly are. But do they really know us?

~I don’t want to get caught up in the rhythm of it
But I can’t get help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

Sometimes, the best way to protect yourself.. is let them take those pieces but reserve who you truly are for those that can do the same in return. Watch and wait. I can honestly say that there is a handful of people that know me inside and out. Both in RL and SL… They know my thoughts, they can predict my every move. There is beauty and also tragedy in this.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing~

I’ve come to realize… that just because someone provokes, questions, begs you … in any way or form, to express yourself … It is best to say nothing at all. Keep those reservations to that handful of people. Let the others wonder. Let them have their thoughts and play their games. Let them pick apart your moves and claim they know you. In the end, they are the fool and you are left standing with pride.

~But I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it~

Don’t get caught in the middle of what they want you to feel…. or what they want you to say. keep watching.. keep waiting. That building will fall, don’t let the stones from the rubble cause you to stumble. Stand your ground. Stay strong.

~Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have (maybe I’m looking something that I can’t have)~
~Sometimes the greatest the way to say something is to say nothing~

And remember…. Keep Smiling Y’all.

A little bit of random

it's cold outside 1024.png

Time for a little bit of random. About a week or so ago, the lovely miss Sadystika Sabertooth, sent out a challenge to give her two random items to write about. I gave her rainbows and snowflakes, which in turn she decided to write about the crazy weather we have down here in the lovely South. I laughed because I had made it to easy for her. I decided to play along and she gave me … a dog collar and a bar of soap…. welp….. Lets just say a lot of things came to mind, knowing Sady of course 😛 LOL! I’m teasing. Well, Just as you said I can thank your stinky dog for that bit of random… I supposed I can thank them again for reminding me it is bath week for my furbabies. 😉

Keep smiling y’all

I’ll Fight

I'll fight 1024.png

{Flickr}

~When you feel you’re taking all that you can take
And you’re sure you’re never gonna catch a break
And the tears are rivers running down your face, yeah
When your faith is low and you’ve got no strength left
When you think you’ve gone as far as you can get
And you’re too run down to take another step~

~Oh I will take up the struggle
Oh I know it’s a fight~

This woman, through thick and thin, as been there. She listens, she advises, shes the one that has fought and stood by me through a lot this year. To think, this is the woman that is suppose to be my enemy.. the one who is suppose to despise me… No.. She’s the exact opposite and I’m grateful for love, understanding and forgiving hearts.. Thank you, Ryanna. Thank you for fighting not only for me, but with me.

~So I’ll fight, fight that war for you
I’ll fight, stand and defend you
Take your side, that’s what I’m here to do
I’ll be there to be strong
Oh I’ll keep on, keep on the fight~

I’ll fight ~ Jennifer Hudson

Humble Soup

So… I originally planned to sit and write about everything that is on my mind lately.. All I can nicely say… STAY HUMBLE!…… It’s that simple guys. There are going to be times when we really succeed and we are also going to fail… its bound to happen. Give credit where credit is due.. go out on a limb and learn new things.. teach new things.. it helps us grow into the  people, bloggers, designers, and creators that we are. Also… love what you do. If you find you aren’t, Step back.. figure it out.. Talk to the people that are the roots in your life and figure out what is going on. Sometimes… these roots are also the windows. While you have been cleaning, dusting and trying so hard to see through… They are the ones already outside and know exactly what is happening. So… take some time to breathe, collect yourself, and in the end, You may see your whole world.. start to let in the sun 😉

Keep Smiling Y’all

Goodbye October

The fall 1024.png

{Flickr}

You ever have a month were everything just seems to hit the fan. You are running around everywhere, not seeming to catch a break, much less make sense of life itself. That’s been October.. One thing after the next.. just throwing on the smile and carrying on. Be strong, be brave, You got this…… Blah Blah blah.. can’t I just pout and whine for a minute. Scream at the top of my lungs.. throw a few things, Go outside and toss some leaves.. hey…. that’s a idea…. See you out there.. 😀 Goodbye October….

Some days I’m a super bitch
Up to my old tricks
But it won’t last forever
Next day I’m your super girl
Out to save the world
And it keeps gettin’ better
Some days are just jam out days….. care to guess what today is? 😉
