I am one of those intensely annoying optimists. Even when everything seems to be going to shit, I desperately try and find some hint of silver lining. Life and the world has become truly crazy in varying shades for all of us, wherever we are… and yet… it seems to be bringing out the best … More Hold Tight To Your Calmness!
So much is always said about not looking backwards as we travel through life. I very much agree with the advice not to remain in a place mired in past mistakes, or the burdens placed by the words and opinions of those no longer with us as we travel. True, the focus should always be … More A Backward Glance
There are times when it’s almost impossible to find words to go with a picture. It doesn’t mean my mind is silent… oh no, not at all. It’s often when my thoughts are in a jumbled state of turmoil, that the rambler that I am can’t seem to order them to make any sense. Oddly … More Silent Thoughts
I do love this time of year. It cheers my heart to see the signs of spring just starting to appear. I have always loved spring… well to be honest there’s something I like in each season, but the ‘newness’ of spring, and the promise of warmer days ahead (even if they are a long … More Green
Even the most simple of items can draw attention. Often the same thing happens when I look at a picture on Flickr, and I ask myself where I might be able to get such an… item. If that object is still on sale somewhere in SL, all I really would like to know is who … More Lipstick and pearls
I freely admit that one thing which annoys me on ‘competition-based’ shows on television, is when contestants are described as having been on a journey through the weeks of it all. It irks me, because life is a journey for us all, regardless of whether lived in the public gaze for a portion of it, … More Travel On!
It takes time, and life, to truly get to know yourself. When young, I thought my life would be completely sorted by the time I reached the age I am now. How wrong I was! Each year that passes… no, each day or week that passes has the potential to turn things on their head … More Know yourself!
There’s nothing wrong with being selfish, well… just as long as it’s the right kind of selfish. I am speaking of that self-centred guarding of one’s own happiness and peace. I don’t ever advocate treading over others to get what I want. Neither do I ever think it’s a good plan to make things better … More Calm And Coffee
I have been in a mood of deep reflection for a little while now. I think part of the reason is that I am trying to make sure not one small blessing passes me by unnoticed. I don’t think this is a bad thing to add to my refocusing this year. In many ways I … More Grateful
I am one of those people completely susceptible to good blogging! chuckles My major downfall are good blogging pictures about decor and interiors. I seem powerless to resist the ideas they sell! 😉 I can’t decide if I just never grew out of the idea of decorating a doll’s house, or if I am really … More Breakfast, beauty and bloggers
