{ Need a little help with my swing } The Liaison Collaborative is OPEN!

Golf_FINAL2

Hello lovelies… Spring is in full force here in the northern hemisphere, the world is bright and green and the days are getting longer so you can spend more time soaking up the sun!  For many people, it also means spending a lot more time being active instead of sitting behind the computer.. A time to rejuvenate and re-prioritize is never a bad thing.  We all need a little break from once in a while.  The Liaison Collaborative and the lead lady in charge, Katya Valeska is no exception.  The event is running it’s last round currently before taking a little hiatus for the summer.  But we’ve been assured, it will be back in full swing in a few months!  So for now, come enjoy this month’s offerings with a very male-friendly and focused theme of “The Gentleman’s Club”.  Ladies, don’t let the theme scare you, there are still plenty of unisex goodies as well as masculine inspired female fashions.  This round just opened May 15th, and will continue to run until June 10th.  Hope to see you there!

{ Fresh From the Market } & Happy Anniversary to meee!

My life is a constant ever-moving roller-coaster ride of ups and downs and all arounds… A to-do list that never gets shorter than a half a page and the “have to’s” far outweigh the “want to’s”.  But sometimes in the middle of all the craziness I just stop and put all the deadlines and chores aside and just do something, anything…for me.  It’s necessary, not only for my own emotional well-being, but the physical too.

A couple years ago when I was in the middle of a huge RL move and building a home and trying to keep it all together, stressed beyond belief, I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.  Often mimicking depression, most doctors dole out anti-depressants and send you on your way.  But I learned that the effects of stress on your body physically… are very real.  My body showed me that it was done.  It had run out of gas and I was going for the crash, by my back going out on me out of nowhere.   I didn’t do anything, I didn’t twist wrong or pick up something heavy.  I was standing there and it just hit me.  After taking a couple tests I discovered my cortisol levels had peaked and plummeted resulting in a body that wasn’t able to recover from things like.. a back going out.  It took months of chiropractic therapy and relying on narcotics just to get me through the rigors of moving and on to a less stressful life.  But I’m a chronic “yes” person.  So I would have to learn to say “no” more, to not take on more than I can handle, and to make time for things that I enjoy and relax me.

This week marks one year since I started this blog.  I’d been taking photos for long before that in Second Life, and had always enjoyed it, but sometimes you want to switch things up and try something different, so taking it to a blog format was new and exciting.  It is not and never has been a job for me, but rather a hobby, and I do it because it is something I enjoy.  The past few months I’ve had to slow down on all things SL because of starting school in RL but coming back to do a few pictures like this here and there are for my well-being..for my creative outlet… and I’m just glad you all let me share it with you.
