Hello there, I hope you all had a wonderful, pleasant holiday. Have a Happy New Year!
It has been a busy, stressful year for me. I hope you have fared better than I. It started off promising but somewhere along the way, I found myself getting sucked into ugly stuff...DRAMA. That stuff can always drag me down. I don't think I look for drama, but I seem to get it. Maybe I'm dumb or just oblivious to the causes, I don't consider myself to be very clever or bright.
Anyway, I have grown more appreciative about the word forgiveness. It is so hard to forgive and each time I get angry, I hear a voice telling me to let go and forgive. Being resentful and holding grudges just isn't a healthy way to live.
In SL, it is so easy to be annoyed and to just unfriend. I have had several friends who have chose to walk away from me. It is a hard blow to the ego or a "kick to the gut", but I have to accept it and move on. I hope that they have forgiven me, but when they never initiate contact with me I am led to believe that they never want to forgive me or have anything to do with me again. So my only course of action to take is to do what I need to do and not contact them. The urge to make excuses or any retorts to them is strong, but I know that they choose not to listen to me even if they do read what I wrote.
For some months, I have been on hiatus from creating. But lately I have been motivated to start create again. I wil start small.
Here is my new texture on an old pose I made in 2012, Backward Glance. It was Backwards Glance. The pose is still the same, only I have redone the photo and reduced the price.
I feel like I need to focus more on my photography to understand how poses need to look as well as how to make the most out of the pose and the avatar in SL. Plus, I have been shopping around. I don't buy everything I see though. It is all fuel for inspiration in any case.
In the new year, I intend to work harder to create more and better quality photos and poses. Working hard is always worth it.
Have a Happy New Year! Take care of yourselves! *hugs and love*
