It Melted

12.15.14.3

AHHH…. Someone quick HELP!!! My snowman is melting and not really sure why. It’s still fridged outside and I am ready for this to be over… what about yall? anyway… I am writing today because it is my A-day. Sometimes when I tell people this they look at me funny and then I have to explain this is my adoption day. The day my parents took me home for the first time. I have to say, I get the most weird looks even with my funny name for it. No, I am not sensitive about being adopted… my parents have always taught me that it means I am extra special. They found me after many many years of looking. Yes, I am open and excited about this day because it is special to me. No telling where I would be or who I would have become without my parents influence on me. I might not know the meaning of a melted snowman might mean. Loads of fun to be had building it that might not have come if I hadn’t of been adopted. I was lucky… and many are not. I am currently going to school for social work to help change this fact and I am sure most have heard me complain about how busy school is and it will only get worse as I enter the majority of my social work classes. I am actually humbled and nervous about my future career. I do hope it will make a difference with the fact that I have been where they are. Only time will tell! I just want to show them that even though they may stand alone like I am alone in this photo, they are never really alone. There is my “let you into my life” moment for the month. Just about enough for now. I can’t overload yall! TOOTLES

Good to be Back

11.24.14.3

I am back!!! I had a nice lovely break from SL for a trip home to see my family and my in laws and I am actually glad it is over. Anyone who spends an extended period visiting family is always glad to see it come to an end and get back to the way things usually are. Visiting everyone is just exhausting! I am coming back to two new events starting on the 5th that I have to show you so I wanted to do a quick snap of this dress by D-style which will be available at Winter Trends 2014. I also came back just in time to hit up the last black friday sales and to find out that TRUTH will be having an in world store sale of 50% off till December 15th! So many good things going on in SL lately and I am glad to be coming back at just the right time. During my away time I have had a lot of time to think about my future in SL and I will be happy to share that with you in a few weeks when things settle down a little. So for my quick welcome home and then back to business… it is great to be back 🙂 TOOTLES

Trust

When you feel depressed, confused or hurt, don’t worry. Stand in front of a mirror, you will find the best one to solve your problem. TRUST YOURSELF!” – unknown author

We all go through those moments when we doubt our abilities and doubt if we are doing the right thing. I began a week of positive thinking on Tuesday (I hate beginning things on Mondays), and that is when the doubt hit me. I finally do not want to have a negative thought and all I was thinking was horrible things like “I am not good enough” or “Why did this or that happen.. is it something I did?” This is a huge struggle for me and those closer to me understand this. I am constantly going back and forth about what I should do and over analyzing everything and every step that I take. It is exhausting! lol The letting go this week has been extremely hard but I want to start trusting myself and my abilities to do what I enjoy and what I love. The take from is just to trust myself… trust that I have my best interest at heart and to expect the unexpected and embrace it. That’s all I have for the day 🙂 TOOTLES!
