We Can Never Obtain Peace in the Outer World Until We Make Peace With Ourselves

“The worst battle you have to fight is between what you know and what you feel.”
~ Unknown

Life is a learning experience. That experience can be both a joyful one or a painful one, or anything in between the two, and often simultaneously. Sometimes you realize that the biggest obstacle you have in learning and growing or moving forward, is yourself. For personal reasons – I won’t go into them here – I’ve been in a battle with myself as of late.

When I saw the topic of Berry Singh’s Monday Meme this week, I saw it as an opportunity to focus on some of the positive in my life. The challenge is to share things that you’ve learned as a result of your time and experience in Second Life, whether the reasons are personal or professional, whatever those “lessons” have taught you.

Life isn’t About Finding Yourself. Life is About Creating Yourself.

This week for her Monday Meme Berry wrote about her blogging milestones. Since my blog and my posting regularly is new in comparison – sort of a toddler to Berry’s adult – I decided that I probably wouldn’t have too much to say about milestones quite yet. So I am doing last week’s challenge this week and because I am doing so on a Monday, the procrastinator in me somehow feels as if I am on time. Yes, I know. My logic is skewed – welcome to my world.

So last week for her Monday Meme, Berry proposed making motivational posters for Second Life. You know the ones. They were up ALL over the place – doctor’s offices, schools, company lobbies… I think I may have even seen one in a public restroom at one time. You can see her post about the topic here. She even linked it to a nifty website that lets you turn you images into a poster.

I think my poster is a little on the hokey side…

Sometimes You Will Never Know the Value of a Moment Until it Becomes a Memory

In my downtime over the last couple of weeks I’ve been binge watching old episodes of Numbers along with anyone who will sit down and watch with me. The show is near ten years old and it’s kind of interesting to see what the hot topics were at that time and a little scary to realize, when it comes to some topics, that things really haven’t changed all that much.

I am up way too late yet again so this is going to be short and sweet. For this post I have used some things from Oneword, but have also included a couple new releases from Tameless. All the credits of what’s what and where to get things are below. 🙂

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings

It’s far too easy to forget that we have so many things to be thankful for in our lives. Jobs ending, relationships gone bad, never seeming to have enough of what we want… things like those all tend to weigh so heavily on us we have a difficult time remembering the things we do have. I am as guilty of that as the next person. I have to make a conscious effort at times to take a step back and look at the big picture and all that I do have, instead of focusing on the little pictures of what I don’t.

We Lead Strange Lives, Chasing Our Dreams from Place to Place

Right now Cirque de Seraphim is going on. The event is a benefit for the ASPCA and  a portion of the proceeds are going towards them. There’s 2 full sims of creators and items with a circus theme. I don’t recall ever being a huge fan of the circus because to me circus = clowns. And clowns, like mimes, tend to creep me out. But even with my aversion to clowns there is PLENTY to see and buy. So go have a look around and shop some too – it’s for a good cause.
