If you read my blogs regularly you will know that I talk about balance often. I seem to never get the balance right. I throw myself into one thing head over heels focussing on a mission, and in the process neglecting other really important things and then that makes the whole business fall flat.

So what is this “business” I’m talking about? A few months ago I decided that the job that I had was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I decided to do a career change and apply for something totally different. It was something that I thought I would enjoy; something that was out of my comfort zone and also something I have never done before so, would be challenge.

Surprisingly, I did get the job and I have given it my 200%, working like a mad person. Getting up early, going to bed late, working, learning… getting this thing right. Everything else just fell to the side. Yet, doing all this didn’t make me perform better and I made mistakes as I became really nervous about being on top, and getting there really fast. After two months of relentless work I had to sit back and realize that I made a mistake. This is not what I thought it would be. I worked really hard, but this is just not my fit. My personal life at that point did not exist anymore and blogging, the thing that I really loved, has also gone off track. I didn’t feel creative and I was bone tired.

Chapters

It was really hard to admit defeat. But I had a choice to make, should I choose the mentality “throw me to the wolves and I come back leading the pack?” or should I just stop. Admit this was a mistake and make yet another change. I decided to lead the wolves. Do better, be better. Until one week later (yes, only a week) I came home crying, having a meltdown. I had to admit defeat. I failed at this and I knew I would that is why I worked so hard to prove that I wouldn’t. I think that was one of the hardest things I have done in my life, admitting that I failed. The next day, I resigned and took two days off to sulk and lick my wounds.

The third day I replied for work again, but this time I was very selective and wanted to make sure that I choose the right one. I still didn’t know what kind of job I wanted, but I was pretty sure of what I didn’t want. It took me a month and a half and now I have been in my new role for two weeks, and somehow it just fits.

After the long story, finally the point. The other day I found something that made sense to me. Chris Brogan sent me a newsletter saying… there is no such thing as work-life balance… and my first thought was.. come onnn we all know there are, EVERYONE is talking about it. And then as I kept reading he said, your work life, home life, fun life must all be in ALIGNMENT or CONGRUENT. They all have to have the same goal. And there is no balance. Some you will spent more time with, some less. If you like your work life, you can align it with your home life, which will align with your fun life. All aspects of your life, needs to feed into each other. Get your alignment right to work toward a commitment with the right attitude. I learned the hard way that balance is only a circus trick. For now, I’m going to sit back and just enjoy my role at work, my home and friendships. I like this chapter of my life.

.:ellabella:. / 1 Hundred.

Just a quick post to show you this awesome tattoo which is a collaboration between The Plastic and .:ellabella:. It is available exclusively at The Body Modification Expo. This tattoo comes in a tattoo later, but also it has piercings you can add to the tattoo, but wait… there’s more! you can choose  different color metals from a  hud and can actually be playful and use two different color metals. This is surely a must have.

Then I would like to show you this stunning simple, classic necklace from 1 Hundred.  Also available in a variety of colors and definitely a timeless piece.

Clarity

High dive into frozen waves
Where the past comes back to life
Fight fear for the selfish pain
It was worth it every time

Hold still right before we crash,
‘Cause we both know how this ends
A clock ticks ’till it breaks your glass
And I drown in you again

clarity

‘Cause you are, the piece of me,
I wish, I didn’t need
Chasing, relentlessly,
Still fight and I don’t know why

If our love, is tragedy,
Why are you my remedy?
If our love’s, insanity,
Why are you my clarity?

Wicked Games

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I’d love somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

Today I was wondering about how I can show you the skin from Mirror’s Enigma’s exclusive at the Body Modification Expo. It comes in various skin tones including Medium, Peach and Tan and each tone has a long, long list of make ups. So I decided to wear just the natural Medium and didn’t add any make-up,  so you can see the essence of the skin.  All appliers (Lola’s, Slink hands and feet and PhatAzz) are also available.  Go grab your copy.

[:ME:] / [trs] / -SU-My eyes are from -SU- also from the Body Modification Expo. There are 8 colors and you can wear both eyes or match it up with wearing different colors together.

Then I decided to wear the corset and skirt from [trs] available only at the She & Him event. I rounded it off with the cute bow hairband from Mag and bracelets from Baubles! both available from the Soho Market.

Mes Sucreries / N-core / L&B

N-core just had a new release, which I’m just in love with. This shoe is really versatile as you can wear it with a goth/sexy casual or grunge look, it will go well with all.  Other good news from N-Core is that they have also just released an applier hud with nail polish for slink hands and feet! So now you hand nail polish can match your sexy N-core feet!

I am really excited about the  Body Modification Expo . The designers have really out done themselves and it took me ages to decide what to show you first! Then I got a delivery from L&B and I just knew I need to blog this, but unfortunately, my graphics card crashed twice during the photo shoot, so the quality of the pictures are not at all what I wanted it to be. It’s so disappointing, but that just gives you a reason to go to the Expo and look at it! The necklace has 2 rings on it which you can custom with your own initials and the one you love. It has a male and female version and a little plate that you can choose  Always, True Love, Forever or Friends Forever from. There are so many options and the best of all is that you don’t have to sent it away to be done.
