Wedged The Right Way

(Original Post @ Zooming Ahead)Wedge_and_FriendsThere are times in life where you just feel you’re between a rock and a hard place.
Wedged between the inconceivable and the impossible.
Those are the times when we should just stop — stop trying to break free.
Although, it may be difficult, start observing the positive around you.
Be thankful for the air you breathe, your ears to hear with and sight (spiritual sight, as well) to see with.  Before long, the space between the rock and the hard will begin to loosen and you’ll be set free.

For you Second Lifers, a new wedge has been created,
but this one is to be celebrated.
Guu Nishi, owner and designer of HOC Industries is back and with a vengeance offering us HOC junkies Wedgie Boots. (Pictured above)
These boots, like many of Guu’s designs, come with what I call a “Mega HUD.”
Being able to choose between 12 colors for the main part of the boot,
toe, edge and laces, the combinations are endless.
Completing my outfit with HOC’s Wrinkled Pleated Skirt and Tokyo77 Flimsy Tank, my friends and I are ready for any situation — impossible or not. ♥♥

Shine Bright, Shine Right

Beacon

(epic music begins)

“You think you have won! What is light without dark? What are you without me? I am a part of you all. You can never defeat me. We are brothers eternal!”

“Actually, that’s not true.  Hate to break it to you since you are the Lord of Darkness and all, but we are all beacons of light.  Sure, some of our lights are much dimmer than others, but the potential to shine bright is there and is waiting for it’s catalyst.
Oh and as far as you being indestructible….
…i love u.”
(epic music scratches to a halt)
GAME OVER

That’s my take on how the movie Legend should have ended.
‘Course, it would have been a total flop at the box office and probably ruined Tom Cruise’s budding career.
(There is a God!)
But, the message still stands true.
We are all beacons of light and have the potential to shine bright to lighten and give strength to someone else’s day.
And guess what?
When you shine right (no forced words or fake smiles) which is from the depths of your soul, you glow naturally.
I’ve never mastered the poker face, so when I am going through some sort of pain in my life, it shows.  However, my beacon, even though walled off at the time, finds it’s way through small cracks and tiny crevices shinning outward — connecting to someone who needs it.
Their face changes.
A smile of their own begins to form and because of that, for the moment,
life isn’t so hard.
Not for either of us.
