Setting Sail

Seek opportunity, not security.

A boat in a harbor is safe, but in time it’s bottom will rot.

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr

This is the time of year when everyone is reflecting on the events of last year, and the changes they want to make for this year. Well maybe I’m a bit late in doing it. My excuse, I was on holiday and really, really enjoyed it, but as all things in life, holidays end and life has gone back to reality. This means, it’s time to concentrate on today and the new year. Reminiscing about 2013, there were two major lows for me, which I don’t really want to discuss as it’s the past. These lows made me focus on more positive things in my life, one of which were my blog and it went from strength to strength. Thank you so much for all your support guys!

I read the quote above, and realized that even though my blog is doing well at the moment, I need to set sail and try new things with it. I need to learn more techniques photography wise and this year, I really, really want to do more writing. This was my goal for last year too, and looking back, I think I have grown, but mostly in the photography area and not so much in writing.

I’m excited about this year, with all it’s challenges and all the new things I’m about to learn. It’s already a great start! Here’s to 2014!

Sasha Cagen created a blog a while ago that only published “To Do” lists. She published an ad in a national magazine and everyone sent her their lists. It ranged from ordinary shopping lists to “what I want to do before I’m 80” It was like having a sneak peek into how people ran their lives and it had an almost therapeutic effect. When you read other peoples list of what they still need to do, you see that we are all far more neurotic, silly and imperfect than we like to present ourselves and that we all really do make lists.

Making a list is a way to structure a chaotic feeling, or when you are busy, it gives you confidence that you will not forget to do something, but you don’t have to constantly think about it. And writing down something you have already done, just so you can tick it as done, so you feel better.

Also lists could be like a mini dairy in bullet form, if you read back on old lists, you will get the exact same feeling you had when you wrote it down.

On a dreamy note, writing down what you really want, and listing it, may be way to let the universe know what you want, it can be really wild, because writing down a wish often magically makes it come true.

Now I somehow need to make this relevant to Second Life and my photos, so I’m totally writing this down as a wish that it may become relevant and hoping for that magic 😉 Did it work?

Now for something very unrelated to the above, but very related to the below. The pants are from Villena  and the top is from Amerie. I really love the style from Villena, the fit feels right.

There was some great excitement around the new Gos shoes this weekend. And with good reason, the hud for those shoes are really so easy to use and makes skin matching a breeze. I decided to buy a few pairs and the bare feet. It will be worth your while to go check it out.

My pants are from Villena. It is unisex and also a nice item to have. The Jacket and shirt; coldLogic.

Have fun shopping 🙂
