Do you see the bigger picture?

I had a really interesting week. I signed up for a course on personalities a few months ago and attended this week. It is amazing all the things you can learn about yourself and the people around you. I have known most of the obvious things as I’m a total self critic (which was also confirmed this week). But there was so much more of my behavior that I was made aware off and it makes it so much easier to identify now.

One of the biggest things I certainly did learn this week was that we were 5 strangers in the group and it was easy for me to assess all of them. To pin their personalities down. At the end of the workshop the facilitator asked us to give each person a reflection of how we see each other and asked to keep it to about 2 minutes each. When it was my turn, I was waiting expectantly and they all just stared at me (which was awkward) and eventually one person ventured… you are an extremely nice lady.

I realized that we were thrown into a room for a full week and we discussed really intense subjects, yet no one knew anything about me, while I knew so much about them even though I really interacted and participated actively. I’ve learned that I’m a much more private person than I realized.

On that note, I did feel inspired and decided to blog this cute lingerie outfit from Glitzz and the pose is from Exposeur the white rooms.

Have a great weekend!

How to be picked out of a crowd

You know what is the biggest photography compliment of them all? Being recognized by your photography style. Who doesn’t want to be picked out of a crowd by the way they create?

Some might argue that all your pictures looks alike, but if you have found your style, you can still be interesting and the possibilities are endless. You are not chasing what others are doing, actually pretty much the opposite. Put your soul into it, embrace it and have fun!

How to be creative: It was never a secret after all

Today I was lucky enough to stumble upon a blog by Scott Berkun. It really caught my attention as he released a book about company culture, which is really relevant to my current work situation and very much under the spotlight. But, then I visited his blog and he had a link to his most read blogs, which is always really interesting to see what people love reading about. The first entry (not to my surprise, as it’s my personal number one most asked question!), is How to be Creative: the short honest truth. Of course I read it.  I want to be creative, I want to be interesting, I want to be good! The answer?… WORK. You have to work at being creative. By learning and doing it over and over. As you learn new techniques. The more you learn the more you can do, the more you can do the more creative you can be. This was never a secret.

Clearly, my avoidance technique (the one I recently adopted) was not helping. Time to get back to work!

While I was not being very creative in Second Life, I have been a little more creative in real life. Winter has finally arrived and I have been out and about in the snow.

Winter arrived ♡♡♡

Have a great day working hard!

Sunday evening musings

This was a great weekend. I didn’t do anything special, just pottered around the house. That is the best kind for me. I’m contemplating doing a painting for my dining room. I think I’ll get around to it next weekend. In the mean time, I logged on and decided to do a picture.

I watch a few tutorials on how to make photo’s look more vintage – I’m totally into vintage photos at the moment. I just really love how it looks. Dreamy and romantic. I’d didn’t get it right this time, but it gives me a reason to practice some more. So maybe next time.

In the mean time, I strolled around our sim and decided to take some pics. Hope you enjoy :)
