There is purpose in a season of waiting…


We were having another cold spell where temperatures dropped into the chilly 30 plus degrees last night and it made me sort of lazy to jump into Second Life even though it was my 6th Rez Day. Instead I snuggled under covers and read.  This meant I didn’t take any photos to blog and then when I attempted to log in today I found that they were doing maintenance so login was disabled for some.

In short, I finally made it in-world to put this scene together, process the photos and mark down credits, which I am leaving you to peruse as it’s close to dinner time.

I will always remember you

Circa 09

The OMGacha started January 10th and will end in a few days on January 24th. One of the gacha sets that you can find there is from [CIRCA], the “Winter Solstice.” The pieces that I am showing do not make up the whole set, just a sampling and are detailed below.

I’m also showing the curves shelf by Dysfunctional Designs, which I modified by sizing it down to sit atop the cabinet there against the wall.  They are texture based and come in different sizes.

Last week two well known people in the entertainment industry have passed and a couple of creators have made a gift in tribute to each.  The first is the Always Deer Hanging Art made my unKindness in memory of Alan Rickman. While I am familiar with several of his movies, the one I remember him most was from the holiday move “Love Actually,” which I really enjoyed.

The other tribute is to David Bowie, who is known as one of the most influential musicians of his era.  MLE, who makes wine bottles for almost every occasion at a very reasonable price, made this wine set as a gift in tribute to the musician.  I received mine directly, as I must have subscribed or purchased something at one point.  I thought it was a nice tribute and displayed it with this scene as well.

Loft Living

DaD 017

I became familiar with DaD Designs through their landscape creations and now being reintroduced again through their newest creation of the Tuscany Loft.   The loft at a footage of 24 x 30 is 100% original mesh and only a 40 land impact.  It’s beautifully textured and quite spacious and can be purchased at 20% off while at the Cosmopolitan Room.  It’s quite a bargain for only $390 lindens.

I’ve decorated using items already in my inventory and provided all the details below.

Lesson 46/S is for…(challenge)

S Challenge

I don’t often like to post twice, though I really do want to catch up on items and today I am motivated. I’m making progress with my real life work and taking breaks does help when you start to get bogged down in technical writing of policies.

Today the letter for the alphabet challenge is “S” and so I am not only featuring myself (joking), these horses and statue that were group gifts from Storaxtree and these trees that were part of 30L Saturday this week {still can get today} from Sweet Revolutions.  The desk and stool are from Ionic gacha items at The Chapter Four event this month.  I thought it would portray the lesson for this week of creating a plan of action of actions for goals you want to achieve in the next twelve months. The pose in the chair is called “inspired” which I thought was appropriate.

Lesson 46:  Create a Plan of Action!

Lots of people have hopes, dreams, wishes, and fantasies about how they’d like their lives to be, but few have translated their desires into clearly defined goals. It’s time to review your goals and create a plan of action for their fulfillment.

For a goal to be effective, it has to meet a few basic criteria:

First, it must be specific. You must state what you want in a way that’s clear, concise, and easily understandable.

Second, it must be measurable. You must quantify your goal so there’s no mistake about whether or not you’ve achieved it.

Third, your goal must be set up within a particular time line. When will you start, and by when will your goal be achieved?

Your assignment this week is to set one goal for yourself that will give you the greatest sense of having lived an extraordinary year, then create a plan of action for its fulfillment.

Your Self-Love Assignment

Close your eyes and ask yourself, “What goal could I achieve within the next 12 months that would leave me feeling inspired by myself and excited about my life?”

Now that you’ve identified your goal, answer the following questions and you will have created a plan of action that, if followed, will lead you to its fulfillment.

  • What is the measurable result I want to achieve?
  • How will I know when it’s accomplished?
  • What is the time frame in which I will accomplish it?
  • What three actions can I take this week that will move me toward the fulfillment of this goal?

Self-Love Points Earned

Give yourself 100 points for creating your plan of action, and another 100 points for taking actions this week to move you toward your goals.
