I’ve reached a fork in the road, and the wind whispers a change. I wrote at the beginning of August, and lightly whispered it on Monday, I’ve been feeling a little blue, a lot creatively uninspired and just plain tired. Every summer I feel this a little, it’s when my view focuses more out the window than in and my feet thirst for a little sand between the toes. Did you know that’s why I often shoot ¾ pictures for my blog? It not only shows the outfit a little better, but like in RL, I prefer to feel my walk through Second Life so nine times out of ten, I am barefoot. (Thank you creators for creating Mesh feet) The feet are the symbol of understanding, so it means metaphysically all that we understand stands under us in consciousness, and what is rooted there can never be taken from us. So it’s good to feel your way on your path to wisdom. I digress (as usual) I feel this way every summer, but this year it’s worse than usual.
So these past weeks I’ve thought so long and hard about me, my life, the ground under my feet, the steps left to travel (looks softly at Dr. Taylor, see you at 8PM). I’ve been stretched thin, something we all face from time to time. It comes from being a “people pleaser.” I love people, and helping people, even if it is just having big ears and no mouth. I’ve wanted to scale back blogging for a while now, I’ve blogged almost every single day for two years now, but I couldn’t let myself let go because with so many of you, it’s the only contact I have with you. I’ve learned so much about my followers, and the people I follow just by peeking in their blogs or them commenting on mine. As an aside, to my blogspot bloggers, I peek at you too, faithfully, I just can’t always comment because it makes me type in the “secret” spam code and I can’t ever seem to type it right. But I am at a fork, and walking away a little bit, I want to do more than snap and crop a picture. I want to style, to create a picture. So for those I promised to blog, I will try but I may not get there, I am sorry. I will still blog charities and awareness campaigns, they just fit about my shoulders well, but all else will most likely be mix and match. Thank you for understanding.
Take from? I love the Martin Luther King Jr. quote, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.” So today, I took a small step of faith and letting go a little. We’ll never know what the future will bring. For now we have this moment, and this moment alone. Breathe, take a step forward and believe in yourself. The rest will fall into place. Least, that’s what I’m hoping. Looky there Draakje Dailey, I even put my knickers back on, I must be going out into public. SLURL’s on the “last know SLURL’s page to the left of this post.
