I get by with a little help from my friends

What would you think if I sang out of tune,
would you stand up and walk out on me?
lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
and I’ll try not to sing out of key.

So many times, we as bloggers are faced with the difficulty of not only blogging the item but showing it in a new light. I knew when I saw this amazing new dress from Blueberry that I wanted to show it in the shorter version. Don’t get me wrong, The long dress is fabulous! The lace is perfection y’all ♥ Just saying. I was talking with a fellow blogger deciding on how I wanted to show it. She mentioned how versatile it is and that it fits perfect with a jacket. So there was my idea with a spin. I can’t take full credit for the idea, so thank you Rina ♥

None of us are perfect. We all struggle in our own ways from time to time. I’m grateful for the people that have helped me grow as a photographer and a blogger along my journey. So, to anyone out there that feels like you are struggling, know that you aren’t alone. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for an opinion, some advice or help. ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
with a little help from my friends.

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.

Dare You to Move

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone’s here
Everyone’s here
Everybody’s watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Life happens…. It’s what you do with what you got that makes you who you are. Where do you go from here?.. what will happen next?…. I dare you to move. You can make it. Things only get better from here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be
Yeah
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before
Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself
To lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before

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

Many Faces

For weeks now, I’ve been toying back and forth playing with the new Genus Head. I scrambled just like most to run and grab it while still in beta.  I’ve bought different skins, shapes, and everything just to try to find a look that fit me. Finally, I found the skin I knew I  wanted… then it was time to really mess with the shape.  I’ve always hated trying to make shapes.. Kudos to you amazing shape creators. You are way more patient than I could ever be. As for now, I think I’m happy with it. More tweaks are sure to come. Who knows, I may just decide to have many faces.

Keep smiling y’all
