Cajsa built us a gym on our islands, which really feels even better than my converted bathroom for working out. There is something to be said for getting away from your life and selfishly focusing on yourself for a little. It calms me, it helps me better at focusing on other people when I get that time away. It makes me WANT to get back inside my own house and I feel a little joyful about it when I’ve put everything into a hard work out.
I love it. Continue reading
Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control.
That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.
I’ve surrendered my lindens to the Gods of the Arcade and I have NO regrets. My cup runneth over with joy and happy. The things I deleted have been replaced with new, wonderful things and I’m ready for the season of happy!
Some of my first pass loves are the amazing folk art pieces for the kitchen from The Secret store and these HUSKIES from Jian. Oh gosh there are so many and SO SO SO CUTE. Continue reading
I’m as excited as a cartoon girl can be about the new month of Collabor88 that just kicked off this month. CREATURES OF THE NIGHT calls to mind so many different things, not the least of which can be sexy lingerie for a girl who just needs ONE MORE SET.
That’s me of course. Continue reading
I’ve lived a lot of places and I tend to take “sayings” from those places with me when I move. One of my favorites was “Don’t get froggy” when meant – don’t JUMP into something, either with attitude or just generally sticking your nose in where it didn’t belong. If you started to start mouthing off into something that wasn’t going to go well for you, a friend would say “Oh don’t get froggy.” It always made me laugh. Continue reading
