I’m going to make a change for once in my life.
It’s gonna feel real good… Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right.
As I turned up the collar on my favorite winter coat, this wind is blowin’ my mind.
I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat. Who am I to be blind, pretending not to see their need?

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and one man’s soul.
They follow each other on the wind ya know? ‘Cause they got nowhere to go, that’s why I want you to know. I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

There was a time in my SLife when all I did was live and breathe SL fashion and modeling. It was always about which awards and contests to win next, what agencies to get in, and which designers to work for, etc… Though I am extremely shy and reserved, I think I did pretty well and I have achieved all that I wanted to do. During my modeling journey, I had lost plenty of friends, made a few enemies and been through plenty of Ups & Downs but through it all, I was true to myself, I stood up for what I believed in and I did it my way without stepping on others back.

One day I woke up…

I realized that I had put so much importance and revolved my life on something that most likely won’t matter 10 years from now. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love fashion and I love being able to express my fashion and artistic style in Second Life, but I think the obsession and constant need for attention and obtaining these “awards/agencies” are just too much and not healthy. It makes me sad how people act in SL. Some “important” people act like “GODS” and think they can look down and control others just because they gained some success in a Virtual World.  Some resort to ass kissing, back stabbing, lying, cheating, cyber bullying and other childish behavior to get some attention and notoriety. I ask you…Is it worth it? Does it make you feel great and superior to treat other people badly? You might ask….Who the hell am I to judge? I will be the first to tell you that I am NOBODY. I am just another human being behind an avatar who has feelings and gets lonely sometimes, just like you and everyone else. And I am not judging, I’m just voicing my opinion through my experiences. I deeply believe in Karma and I will treat people as how they treat others no matter how “delusional” they might be about their SL importance.

Now enough of the negativity…. lol. I’m not completely emo, I promise. The best part of the SL Fashion World for me is the many wonderful friends I’ve met. There are truly many beautiful and kind people out there and I have the honor to call them my friends and mentors. They have given me a lot of opportunities to grow, supported me through everything and loved me for who I am. You all know who you are and I sincerely Thank you for being beautiful inside and out. My awesome hubby, Editorial Clarity and I have slowly moved away from SL Fashion these past few months though we both know fashion is part of us. We will continue to produce The Fashion Teller books as a means to express our fashion and artistic sides, and I will probably model from time to time I’m sure. I’ve tried to retire completely so many times but a little tiny voice is always calling me back especially when I am inspired. LOL. So….I guess I am semi-retied. ;p

Best Wishes to Everyone in Both Lives.
