I can’t believe we only have 23 days left until Christmas, and for those who celebrate Hanukkah the Menorahs are already unpacked and everyone is all excited for the start of the Holiday on the 6th. This past year has flown by filled with surprises, joy, pain, heartbreak and above all else, learning. With the adjustments I have had to make with my back and neck finally deciding they were done trying to combat the damage caused all those years ago, I have learned I am capable of much more than I ever dreamed. I am a very introverted extrovert, which means I know a lot of people, and chat here and there, but for the most part who I am, and what I am about usually stays well hidden, except to a very exclusive group of people. Revealing my pains and sorrow, happiness and accomplishments to the world at large was something that terrified me when I began blogging and I stuck just to the fashion; at least for a little while. Over the months I found my voice, a place to share my thoughts, stories and musings, as I like to call them, and for the first time in a long time my confidence level began to rise and I learned I was something more than I thought, more than I believed. When push comes to shove and you have no choice but to change, to adapt, you learn a lot about yourself and find you are as strong as the people around you have been saying for years now, trust me I did and I was pleasantly surprised to find out everyone else was right! I am a fighter, a survivor and out of adversity comes a more confidant woman as I head into the holidays this year with my family. If you have been struggling to find a purpose or meaning, try putting pen to paper, or keyboard to screen, and see what you can discover about yourself, after all it is the best way to commune with your soul, and there is no better time of year to open a new door to your future than NOW!
Just like all the retail stores in our real lives are getting ready for the holidays with tons of sales and giveaways and teasers to bring you in, the creators on Second Life have done the same thing with the plethora of events currently running on the grid. The Arcade and FaMESHed opened yesterday; Tannenbaum Holiday Market opened the 25th and runs through the 25th; SaNaRae also opened the 25th and ends on the 18th; tomorrow the 2015 Holiday Expo – Frozen Christmas, Relay for Life event opens to the public with all kinds of amazing goodies for a wonderful cause.
