Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.
There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.
In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.
Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/
Do you make an entrance? Are you confident about your look? Does it matter how you dress?
Do you have more than one persona? Can a shy violet succeed in the corporate world? Are you the person we see?
In real life we don’t look like avatars or dolls, our expressions change every passing moment. There is depth in our eyes, with or without words, we can make known dislikes and pleasures. Humans interact, it is part of living.
Success is achieved by working in harmony with others. If the people involved in a group cannot agree with one another, things do not progress. When they work together as one, they can move mountains.

An artist can create an avatar, but the avatar is only pixels, it is the person behind the avatar that brings the avatar alive. Dolls come in every shape and size, today I must have seen dozens of dolls and not one was the same as the other. How they were dressed, did go a long way in projecting personality.
In the questions above, there is no right or wrong answer, we are all capable of astonishing feats, and brilliant ideas. Each one of us, has at some time been a different person. Why. Because, we interact with other individuals differently. Look around at your friends. Each one, brings out a different “something” about you.
Isn’t this wonderful. A wink and smile to each and all. Thanks for sharing this moment with me.
We leave a trace everywhere we go, it seems impossible to enjoy without some how taking or leaving something behind. Some harmonize better than others. A wound may heal physically, but it will never be the same, ever. Life does go on, we are blessed in ways that we will never truly fully understand, Nature will soon blanket the scarred and littered land around us with the beauty of fallen snow.
The fairy tale world of a winter wonderland, will lull the weary, allowing for time to recharge and erase haunting memories. Right now she is blessing us with a wonder of colours and vistas of raw umber and burnt sienna interwoven with deep golden hues interspersed with rusty reds,
Today, I am the birch, patiently waiting for you to drive by, tires rolling across the asphalt, and the quiet to reappear till the next motorized vehicle comes along. Please do not be offended, it is simply time for us to hibernate.,
Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
Day 2 PL Calendar – Be forever Young and Seek New Challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the every changing world.
I so truly believe in these words. One of the reasons I enjoy Second Life so much (virtual world) click here is the opportunities it gives me to express my artistic self, as well, as be anyone, or any “creature” I want. The creative opportunities are endless.
Every day, we live our lives usually dealing with the immediate needs that come our way. To keep our senses sharp and be ready to adapt, we have to be willing to “let go” of old habits, and to allow new ideas and expressions to colour our world.
Little steps. One day at a time.
In the PL community there is always someone to listen. Someone to “help” .. someone to “listen”
