#SubscriberSaturday – What are you grateful for? (CLOSED)

**GIVEAWAY CLOSED – winners will be contacted inworld via IM or NC**

I am grateful for all the people in my life who has and continues to endure me at my best and my worst. I am grateful for all the experiences that shaped me to the person that I am now. I am grateful for even the littlest of blessings for giving me the motivation to do my best at all times. Lastly, I am grateful for all the failures/hardships that made me stronger.

It’s been a while (and I do mean a while) since I last did a giveaway for my awesome readers and I think it is just right to show appreciation for your never-ending support. Tune in every Saturday for #SubscriberSaturday where I will be giving away some cool (maybe random) stuff. The winners will be announced the following Tuesday with details on how to claim your prize.

To start it off, I will be giving away an ensemble from Ricielli‘s latest collection, the Porsha shirt and Moira denim pants, to 4 lucky readers. All you need to do is answer the question “What are you grateful for?” by commenting on this post together with your Second Life legacy name (no display names and please make sure you are visible on search) and the color of shirt and pants you like the most (click here to view the colors for the Porsha shirt and here for the Moira denim pants). Commenting will be closed Monday 10pm EST.

Thank you and good luck! ❤

P.S. Show me some lovin’ by subscribing to my blog or liking my Facebook Page.

Nothing but a reject…

Nothing but a reject _ body

Have you ever stopped and wondered how many times you have worked hard to impress other people yet it’s never good enough? You exert effort, stress yourself out… only ending up disappointed that things didn’t go the way you hoped it would. You feel like a failure and wonder what it is about you that people don’t like. Am I too plain? Am I not doing the right thing? Before you know it, you fall into this negative state of mind wherein you are convinced that no matter how hard you try, you are nothing but a reject. I’ve been on that boat quite a few times and it wasn’t exactly a festive Disney cruise. I felt uninspired and wanted to give up. The passion that was once burning inside of me was slowly dying.

Although it is difficult, it is helpful to be able to recognize the right people who you should keep by your side. People who would catch you when you fall, encourage you to try again, and give you a good beating when your feet start to float too high above the ground.

When all else fails, step aside and find another perspective. Get a breath of fresh air…

Nothing but a reject _ face

Be it Second Life or the real deal, remember that you should do things because you love doing it, because it makes you happy. A successful career and a hefty paycheck is nothing if you do not enjoy your work. There is nothing wrong with trying to please others because the feeling of “being accepted” is something needed by human beings in order to grow emotionally. However, it is not possible to please everybody. You will have haters, doubters calling you ugly, fat, stupid, and/or other negative adjective they could think of… and that’s okay as long as you are happy with who you are, you enjoy doing what you are doing, and not harming somebody else. No matter what, DO NOT lose yourself in the process of pleasing others. Stay true, do your thing, and leave the rest of the work to the universe… ❤

I am wearing a mix and match of Blacklace and Gizza today. I am also in love with this hair from monso called Yong!! I wonder if it’s named after CNBLUE’s Yonghwa? ❤ Have an awesome week!
