The past month or so has been an exercise in awareness of how the choices I make affect my ability to be responsible. How many times I’ve agreed to do something because in the moment I want to help, have the skills necessary to to the task, like the person who’s asking, or just want to have fun… any number of reasons. But when it comes down to it I have limited time and I’m not serving anyone if I take a task and make others expect I’ll get it done.. and not give someone else the chance to do it who might have both the time and the skill.
Wanting to look good to others can be a mighty barrier against actually accomplishing work that will distinguish one as a competent and useful person. As I progress through my career as a model in Second Life, I’m learning that I need to say no sometimes, possibly more often than yes. Saying yes to something means saying no to other things… and I wish to be certain I leave room for yeses that will get me closer to my goals. Come to think of it… this has so many applications… relationships, money, diet… uff, getting complicated again! Anyway… I’m curious to hear if anyone who reads this is either struggling with the same thing, or has solved that struggle, and if so, what habits you’ve developed to do that.
A few weeks ago I was given a gown to blog for Glam Dreams. The gown is called Simplicity, ironically, I think, since the ornate patterns embedded in the dress are anything but simple.However this is foiled nicely by the clean lines of the gown, hugging the torso and hips, and flaring nicely into an elegant train. There is a definite Art Nouveau feel to it, so I chose to pose at The Mercury Room and Owl’s Hollywood Hootery http://slurl.com/secondlife/Catalina%20Cove/126/44/1307/, a really beautiful Art Deco/Art Nouveau spot.
Glam Dreams[http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Agard/234/201/28] is relatively new on the scene but has some really nice women’s casual and formal clothing, non-mesh, partial mesh, and full mesh. The creator, sandytpr Lysette, has taken care to offer gowns in currently fashionable colors and classic shapes that will flatter any woman.
