Death

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Albert Pike
My Lovelies, this post will be a long one so warning everyone in advance. Lately, there has been a lot of drama on Facebook with my MVW Sister Eva and her supposed death from an aneurism. Many people in SL all came together to band as one to say how much we loved her and will miss her. It turned out to be a hoax and she is alive and ok. I am so glad she is alright.
This situation hit very close to home for many of us and many of us are confused as to the whole thing. I am one who is confused but this situation is close to home for me as well. In September of 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. I was not expected to live and I have not told anyone in SL about this cancer because I wanted to be known for my hard work not someone being sympathized because I was sick.

I went through chemo and radiation, both did nothing to help shrink the tumor. I was terribly sick and dropped down to about 80 pounds as I could not eat anything or what little I did eat, came right back up. They had to drop some of the treatments down because I was so sick and during that time. the tumor became really aggressive and spread everywhere. I was lit up like a Christmas tree.

My doctors sent me to the Oncology Unit at the University of Chicago and they found a clinical trial that cured me over the course of 6 months. I still had to do rounds of chemo and radiation with it but the main trials zapped it out. I was accused by some people online who I thought were my friends that it was not true and I made it all up. I even had photos of me with the doctors and proof to show I was sick.  In the end, I just had to focus on getting better and living, not worrying what these so called friends thought if I was sick or not.

My point of all of this is I am lucky to still be here and sometimes, you have to do what you have to do in order to fight and live. Each day should be considered a gift even if some days royally suck. People can suck and I don’t get it when someone can be so awful and horrid. In such a social media frenzied age, things get out fast. Its one thing to play a little joke, its completely another to play with so many people’s emotions. Some actions have consequences long after the drama has died down.
Anyway Lovelies, thank you for being here with me and thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate every one of you.

Destiny, Love and Kindness

Lovelies, I have a question for you all. How many of you believe in destiny or that everything happens for a reason? I believe in destiny to an extent but I also buy into the you control your own destiny as well. I often wonder in our highly technological world what it is doing to society as a whole. People can be just as mean sitting behind the computer and even more so then in real life. Its not exactly as if you can confront them face to face and even if you did get together online to talk it out, who is to say they aren’t telling you exactly what you want to hear.

I have always been raised to treat everyone how I want to be treated and if you are nice to me, I am nice to you. I think I am pretty genuine and very caring. I care about other people and at work, I have several customers that will only come to me and through my line because they like talking with me. I see though working with the public a lot of people who are just so mean and ornery at times, it makes you wonder what they believe in besides their own self serving needs. Customers will sit there talking on their cell phone while I am trying to do my job and check out their groceries and they look at me like I am a rude one. Is that how society is becoming? Everyone is so absorbed in their own world that it gets harder and harder to crack a smile? It takes more muscles to frown then to smile.

My point Lovelies is, whether it is real life or second life or whatever form of media that you use to socialize with others, that we all should try to be kind to each other and love one another. Life is way too short to walk around being pissed off all the time. As for Second Life, we come to SL to have fun, and relax, escape from our real life drama for a little while. Each of us has our own battle we are fighting and its nicer to have a helping hand when we need one then a cold shoulder. So try to love one another and spread a little sunshine. Together maybe one by one, we can at least brighten someone’s day.

The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love,
which includes not only others but ourselves as well.

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird,
and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
