I had a wonderful holiday weekend with my family and had a nice visit with a special friend in my real life.
To be honest, getting re-acquainted with blogging and taking photos again is a bit challenging for me. As if it wasn’t hard enough before because I’m just one of those people who lets myself get distracted easily. I spend more time shopping, chit-chatting with Lorelai and Aloriana, exploring fun sims, and trying to get a handle on my shit hole of an inventory, than getting any real creative work done. But, I’ve decided that it’s okay. The things I’m doing might not be as productive as I’d like but I’m having fun. And every moment matters.

(I got this outfit at May’s round of We Love Roleplay. It is a well made, well textured outfit that I really love. But, the full view didn’t make it into the photo.)

Anyone who knows me “well”, knows that I am a free spirit. I am one of those people who would sail around on a dandelion, floating from one amazing place to another if I could. This can be a wonderful trait because your always being exposed to brand new people and experiences, but at the same time it can also be a harmful trait as well. I’ve spent the past year in another place, a place I thought I needed to be. I wanted a change of pace, a change of scenery, a change of…well…everything.
But, in this past year, I learned an important lesson, about wanting to find bigger, better, more adventurous things. Nothing is ever really gained by never planting firm roots somewhere. To a person like me, sometimes roots can feel like a nuisance, like a binding that tries to hold me in a place that I do not want to be. But actually, roots keep us grounded, they keep us humble, and they remind us, of what stability really means. So, instead of trying to find that imaginary, perfect place that will make me feel most alive, a place I am pretty sure I’ve conjured up in my head….I am simply going to enjoy being me, Lamira Sangio, where my SL journey began in 5 years ago, and I am going to bloom right here where I am planted.
