Reality Check


SL is an escape for me. I retreat here to enjoy the creativity and opportunity to express myself in a variety of ways that RL doesn't give me. However, sometimes reality gives me reason to pause and reflect on what my escapism means I am also missing out on. Today was one of those days.

It was one of those days were you just want to grab the ones you love and hold them tight. Why does it take a tragedy to make us want to do that? Surely that is how we should live our lives every day? Shouldn't we be living like anything could happen and not stressing the little stuff?

I apologise if this is a downer for you and I know that usually I am all about the fashion, but today I just feel like I want to breathe and reflect.

Today in my Real World 29 men lost their lives. Brothers, husbands, sons, grandsons and friends who walked out the door and went to work and never came home.

My challenge to you today is to hug the ones you love real tight and tell them you love them. I will be too.
