Forget Being Perfect

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

Country Girl at Heart

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

So y’all….. this girl…. totally been trying to steal her away for a collab for almost a year now. LOL. All it took was the mention of donuts and she was hooked. I won her heart. LOL. Just kidding.. maybe… 😉 Anyway, This lovely beauty is one of the best. I’m completely humbled and flattered she jumped in on this collab with me. Thank you for your patience through my crashes… and welcome to the crazy world of Addy. ♥ I hope to have many more pics to come… minus the crashes and of course.. lots of American donuts 😉 ♥

Exhaustion

Now that the holidays are over…. and life comes back to normal, I find myself just wanting to flop down and let it all go. The sun will find it’s way out soon and spring will be knocking soon. Don’t get me wrong.. winter is absolutely gorgeous.. but I’m ready for those signs of new life ♥

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. ♥

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.
