Forget being perfect.

 Forget being right.

Do what makes you feel good. Not just any good feeling though. That deep feeling of pure goodness. From start to finish, Get out of your head and let the beauty of it all surround you. Follow the steps, set the frame, a dash of cuteness and bam.

*exhales hard*

Keep Smiling Y’all

Craving You

craving you 1024.png

~Every time we have to say goodbye
I’m counting down until we say hello
Every touch is like the strongest drug
I don’t know how much longer I can go
I never had something that I can’t walk away from
But, girl, my self-control’s so paralyzed
When it comes to you, no, I ain’t got no patience
There’s something ’bout you girl I just can’t fight~

The first thought in the morning and the last message of the night. I have never liked goodbyes… It is always a “See you later” for me… or I will simply say I love you and hang up the phone when I am ready to. Many can attest to that.

~You’re like that cigarette
That shot of 100 proof
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving
That feeling when we kiss
The way your body moves
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving you
Craving you~

With you…. It is Never a goodbye… it isn’t even the see you later…. it is always with a kiss. Your scent is intoxicating to me… Your voice melts my heart and gives me a sense of home. Your hugs are that home for me. I could just hug you for hours… days… and never let go. Your touch sends chills down my spine in all the best ways. The way you trace my palm…. then look at me with those soft green eyes…. *Sighs*

~All the in-between is killing me
You know I come unglued from missing you
Sunset eyes, no, I don’t have to try
Because you know exactly what to do
I never had something that I can’t walk away from (walk away from)
But, girl, my self-control’s so paralyzed
When it comes to you, no, I ain’t got no patience (I ain’t got no patience)
There’s something ’bout you I just can’t fight~

No matter what we do, even when you feel like death… or vice versa 😉 You are always the best company. I carry you with me everywhere I go.. Now as I stand here.. watching the world go by, I watch as you go on your way. Be safe, my heart.. and know that I am never too far away.

~You’re like that cigarette
That shot of 100 proof
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving
That feeling when we kiss
The way your body moves
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving you
Craving you~

Smoke circles… Inhaling deep…Exhales slow…. still smelling you on me.. around me.. in the air……. Time apart will only bring us closer from this point out. The tears will come and go.. the memories will always be stronger. Knowing you would turn around with a simple request… warms my heart even more.

~Every time we have to say goodbye
I’m counting down until we say hello
Every touch is like the strongest drug
I don’t know how much longer I can go~

I love you….. I’ll always crave you…… More than you know….. ♥

~You’re like that cigarette
That shot of 100 proof
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving
That feeling when we kiss
The way your body moves
No matter how much I get
I’m always craving you, yeah~

~Craving you
Craving you (I’m craving you baby)
I’m craving you
I’m craving you babe~

The other day I was talking to a few friends of mine about the different deco scenes we create for our blogs. They had mentioned that house scenes aren’t typically their favorite but for me… they are. I enjoy creating a place that looks like home on the outside as much as I would on the inside. If you haven’t been to Uber yet be sure you go and grab this beauty from DaD. You won’t regret it. ♥

Keep smiling Y’all

Merry Christmas.. Eve! ♥

I wasn’t planning on posting this blog until after Christmas, but I was able to sneak away for some down time between wrapping and cooking. Today is a bit solemn for me and my family. We are missing someone very dear this year and today is their birthday was well. The Christmas cheer just hasn’t been the same but I know we will make it through. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas ♥

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.

What I’ve Missed Most

christmas 1024.png

{Flickr}

So Yesterday, I did something that I very rarely do. I dug down deep and pulled out thoughts and feelings that I knew if I did not,  I would wade through them on the daily. It is good to just be able to sit and write things. My mom has given me multiple journals throughout the years and always told me, Even if it’s just a few words, Write something. But the thing about journals for me is, they become more like something you are forced to do everyday. You skip one day .. okay no problem, then you skip two .. then it becomes a week. They say it takes three weeks  of repetition and if not.. the habit never forms.

One thing I feel is missing from that is the passion and determination to actually get down those thoughts and feelings. Without that, what is the point in it.. what is the point in doing anything for that matter if the passion isn’t there. Same goes for my blogging. With every break, Or at least blogging break, I have taken from SL, I’m thoroughly missed blogging. I’ve missed taking a creation and showing it in the best way I possibly can. I miss taking that picture and then applying  a song, quote,  or poem to it. But most of all, Is the one thing those closest to me miss as well: I miss my stories.

I miss writing about what is going on in my little world. I miss throwing every thought and feeling into words along aside a picture. I miss being vulnerable. When I first started blogging this is what I would do…. I feel like somewhere along the way I was captured in the mode of “Just get this post out.” Saying to myself each time,  I’ll write in the next one. Over the past few weeks, I’m come to realize I can’t do that to myself anymore. I’ve dropped a mighty handful of incredible creators. Even some that were serious blogging goals for me… Simply because it isn’t fair to myself or them, to keep trying to put out something I’m not absolutely proud of.

So in doing of all that, I’ve decided to come back to why I started blogging in the first place. I am determined to make myself write again.. I want to feel again. I want to throw myself into every post not only in the photo but also in writing too. In two short days, My blog will be three years old. Thank you to all of you that have followed my journey along that way. I hope you continue to stick around. There will be more stories, quotes, poem, and most definitely songs…..

But the one liners, They’ve got to go.

Keep Smiling Y’all.
