Country Girl at Heart

Country girl-city life 1024.png

For most of my life, I’ve lived in the country. Out in the middle of absolute nowhere to most, but to me it is where I love to be. There have been a few times where life drug me to the city. All the lights, hustle and bussle of city life isn’t something I looked forward too. Even the night life is busy… I missed my stars, the crickets and the frogs singing me to sleep. I even at one point could walk anywhere I needed to go. I know, for a few people I know that walking or even catching a taxi or bus is a way of life for them. Not this girl…. The thought of even trying to flag down a taxi scares me. LOL. I love my life in the country, but if there ever comes a time where I would be called back to the city, I will always be a country girl at heart. ♥

Keep Smiling Y’all

My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies

“My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies. It comes from the love that’s in my dogs eyes”

I’ll admit… I am much more a dog person than a cat person. They get on my nerves at times and others more than I’ll admit in this post… LOL But I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. ♥

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.

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

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

Breathe in…. Breath out..

Take some time to yourself. Everything else will fall as it must. Just take the time to breathe.
