Daydreaming

It took hours to perfect my makeup for the day.  And I have to say, my face was beat!And as much as I wanted to focus, my look of longing was misplaced.

The photographer snapped a quickie of me but never said anything.  When I checked my phone there was a message of “what were you thinking about in this moment?”  The truth of the matter is, I don’t remember.  I wish I could…my mind simply wandered off.  Maybe it’s the weather, maybe the time and place; it could even be the ceremony; maybe it’s me missing my dance partner…I’m really not sure.

Saying Yes

2018-02-27_002.png

I am a people watcher. And in SL, I see more of what I saw IRL among the people here. A lot of us…we are all alike in many ways; especially in how we treat ourselves. It may manifest itself differently from person to person, but the base premise comes from the same place.  And while some revel in it and/or embrace it, some of us torture ourselves with it trying to find a way out…but not always succeeding. I often see so many of us say yes to the wrong things and the wrong people because of our inner struggles of saying yes to ourselves.

So many of us are so quick and able to give the most intimate parts of ourselves to others but then become incredibly stingy and hesitant to give those same gifts to ourselves.  Things like trust, awareness, time, affection, care, love, respect and validation; these are all things we tend to give in hopes of receiving them from others but are so quick to deny ourselves. We rationalize how if we have this person or that person or any person in our lives that we can only then be happy/feel complete/be whole.

But in the same vain, we’re also a people that will uplift and try to instill those same values in our friends who may be suffering as we are in hopes that they too don’t fall into that same pit we live in.  Not because we don’t want to be alone; but because we don’t always feel worthy of the things we give so freely to anyone else.

We say we don’t, but we do.  How do I know this? Because when a relationship of any kind (romantic/platonic/familial…you name it) ends, we always go down the list of all the things we did for that person, stating that they didn’t do the same for us. But do we ever stop and say, “maybe if I had recognized that I deserved all these things in the first place, I wouldn’t have allowed for this to happen to me?”  Probably not. And that’s where the say yes journey should begin.

And I don’t say this to sound like a jerk or bitter or anything that denotes anything other than reality.  We have to treat ourselves better. We have to look into ourselves and figure out who we are, what we want from ourselves and what we want FOR ourselves before we can inflict those expectations on someone else. We have to know who we are and what we really want so we know what we are willing to accept and put up with; what we truly deserve: happiness and fulfillment.  But it starts with looking at yourself honestly and starting to really strip away the layers to get to your inner emotional meatiness and then working on figuring out the rest.

I’ve been on this journey for a while now; learning more about who I am, what I like, what I don’t like, what I want, what I deserve and just what I’m willing to put up with in order to achieve it.  It’s been a hard journey and it gets lonely at times.  But by saying yes to myself, vowing to myself to view myself better and love myself better, I’ve been able to say yes to myself more instead of saying it to the wrong people, situations, ideas or things.

Just a little food for thought on this Wednesday afternoon.

A Lil Sass

I tell you! I am seriously loving the stuff coming out of both the Booty’s Beauty and Kula camps for makeup!  They are throwing down fierce and making me look faaaberlerrrr! This lipstick from Kula is giving me so much life right now! And matches perfectly with my eye makeup and this darling outfit I picked up from Artizana at the Boho Culture Fair. I even got a little bold and tried out Booty’s new eye appliers and lashes just for a different look and man if I wasn’t feelin’ myself *cue the Beyonce track*)! I guess that explains why I got a little sassy at the shoot today.

The photographer said, “don’t be cute!” I poked my booty out, snorted and retorted, “Too late! 😛  Teehee!” I didn’t think the shot would be taken! LOL I guess I was wrong. Okay time to go get ready for this wedding I’m djing tonight. Ciao for now kids!
