If you’ve met a man/woman who makes you sigh with desire, and you’re fairly certain you’re going to be getting into bed with them soon (if you haven’t done so already), there are certain things that are almost inevitable.

I bring you the four stages of lust every couple goes through – so which one are you at? I’m not telling where I am at present 😉
1: There’s a Spark!
This is when you realize that the person you just met – or have known forever and just rediscovered – there is chemistry with them. It is the phase of brain-numbing, spine-tingling, unmentionables-quivering excitement, the times of oh WOW moments that your eyes lock and you’re seriously dissolving in lust.
2: Read My Sext?
By now, you’ve established communications – and sexing galore. You’ve been talking frequently, conversations are full of double meanings and strong hints, and you’re really looking forward to “meeting” – read: “mating” up soon.
3: Snog
You’re both on board with getting down and dirty. You’re meeting frequently, and you can barely keep your hands off each other, totally sucking face. Your priority right now: how to get each other’s pants off; for all you care, the rest of the world can go fornicate itself.
4: Practice makes perfect
You can’t get over how amazing it is, its getting more and more like Shades of Grey and some, and how much you want each other nearly every hour. It’s the honeymoon phase of your activities – it’s pretty awesome, and it keeps getting better because the more you do it the better you get at it. Practice makes perfect – you finally know what that means.
You’ve also begun to care about the world a bit more – you want everyone to be getting as much…satisfaction as you are!
So which stage are you at present.

#668 Untouchable…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #668 Untouchable… for original post.

Call it the grass-is-greener effect. Almost everyone has found themselves drowning in romantic feelings for a man or woman she can’t have — either because the object of her affection is in a relationship with someone else or because she herself is (or both). Sometimes we fantasize constantly about the forbidden crush but don’t take it any further than that. Other times we actually act on our feelings by engaging in a sexual relationship with the unavailable person. 

Of course, you can wallow in “why me” misery or wish for a happy ending in which that unavailable person becomes suddenly available to you. But there are healthy ways to deal with this all-too-common situation that won’t waste your energy or wreck your life. Here are some tips for coping. 

1. Accept that your feelings are normal. 
A wedding ring is a pretty good sign that someone is in a committed relationship, but that little band of gold can’t prevent you from suddenly finding yourself drawn to someone who isn’t your spouse or significant other. Even people who have been in partnerships with the same person for years can easily feel attracted to someone else“Attraction doesn’t end once we’re in a relationship., but if they are married then it is time to look away. 

2. Know that unavailability often makes people more attractive. 
Seriously, love does not make any sense. Why would someone seem more appealing if he or she is obviously taken? At least for women, self-esteem issues may be at the root of the problem. 
Women who lust for unavailable partners may be unconsciously hoping that the person will finally commit and make them feel worthy. Again time to find someone that is not taken.  

3. Ask yourself if you’re being competitive. 
Take it from Taylor Swift — sometimes all you want is to tell your friend’s partner, “You belong with meeeee.” Maybe that’s because you think that unavailable guy or girl is hot; or maybe it’s because you’re trying to one-up your pal.  

If the object of your affection (or the person you’ve already gotten involved with) is actually attached,   consider whether your feelings might stem from a competitive spirit. Then think about how you can curb these competitive urges in a healthy way, without ruining either your friendship or your friend’s relationship or the guy/gal that your fantasizing about.. 

Wait till he wants you not the other way around. In other words don’t chase!!

#667 Bolshaya Neva River

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #667 Bolshaya Neva River for original post.

Six years I have spent at Secondlife and in that time I’ve met some amazing people from so many different countries, and religious beliefs. It has opened my eyes to different ways of living and life. Some of my closest friends I have come to realise wern’t men afterall were female, and vica versa and I embrace their secrets, and think it is afterall a place for them to be something different.

One place that I return to often to seek some solace is that of my favourite land being Neva River.

I remember when Neva Crystall created Neva River for the first time, sharing with her loved ones, and then opening it up to the public including moi so I could move in. With a ‘excuse the french’, shitty, crappy old computer I had to leave my home of Neva River as my computer would not see the gorgeous settings Neva had created.

Whilst Neva has been a friend of mine for many a years now, I’d like to express my awe of her creative abilities and the time she spends making Secondlife the beautiful place it is now.

#666 There’s a fire in my heart darling but it is not burning for you anymore..

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #666 There’s a fire in my heart darling but it is not burning for you anymore.. for original post.

No matter how much we want things to stay the same, life is all about change. 
Sometimes change is for the better, and sometimes it’s not.No matter why things are changing, we need to be able to let go and move on. Whether it’s the death of a loved one, a painful breakup, a business failure, or a treacherous betrayal, holding onto past pain and resentment will only hold you back.
“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

The process of letting go of someone you love is one of life’s most painful experiences. When you have invested a considerable amount of time and emotional energy in someone, the prospect of living without them may be unthinkable. You may look back on the memories you shared, the plans you made, and feel nothing but psychic agony. If you are newly broken up, envisaging a new future may feel close to impossible. You may find yourself ruminating on what you could have done differently, the arguments you may have had, and the things you regret saying.
Every relationship is unique, and there are many reasons why cutting ties may be the kindest solution for all parties. Maybe you discovered as time went on that your values and dreams did not align. At first you may have hoped that you could overcome your differences, but in the end they drove you apart. Sometimes, love just isn’t enough and you come to the sad conclusion that it’s time to part ways. Whatever the trigger, the emotional fallout will be considerable. Be kind to yourself and expect it will take some time getting used to being on your own again.

#665 Today I don’t feel like doing anything…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #665 Today I don’t feel like doing anything… for original post.

As the song goes, “Today I don’t feel like doing anything”… Nothing at all..

So when did I start to take life so seriously?
 Sometimes, I just want to scream when I realize how wrapped up I can get in the “importance” of my day-to-day. This is an urgent reminder that I am in “serious” need of some laughter and good old fashioned play time. In these times, I turn to my inner child for help. We’ve all got one. They remind us how to be free, spontaneous, imaginative and most importantly, they help us to reconnect with our personal truths.
Here are 5 fun ways to get in touch with your inner child and help make them a part of your life:
1. Express yourself. Take out a piece of blank paper and draw. Draw whatever comes to mind. Even better Get your hands on a colouring book, stat! (Bonus points for using crayons.)
2. Play! Play! Play!  If you are lucky enough to have sentimental parents, you may have an attic or basement filled with your old toys. Not a chance? No problem. Hit a local second hand store in your area and look for old toys you used to play with. Bring them home and play! Have a drunken friend’s night and bring out Monopoly for some laughter.

3. Kick back and enjoy some me time: – Watch old children’s shows that you used to watch as a kid. Those memories will come flooding back and you’ll be feeling light hearted in no time. Some classic shows are now available on Netflix.

4. Sing – As a kid, I can remember belting out songs at the top of my lungs. I didn’t care who heard me and I didn’t care if I was any good. One of my favourite activities to do when i find myself too serious is to sing as badly as a I can. Turn up the volume of something that makes you smile and sing.. :).

5. Laugh – Find something that makes you laugh and do it! it’s impossible to think about anything serious or stressful when you are crying and gagging with laughter. Invite some friends over, who cares if the house is messy. They are coming to see you and have some laughs not to admire the mess.

#664 I still remember these…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #664 I still remember these… for original post.

A song that is grabbing me at present, is the beautiful music from Ed Sheeran – 
“Castle on the Hill”

How we are all getting older, whether you are 20, 30, or older, our friends are a major part of our lives. How we are all different in some way or another. How we meet, and then grow apart. How each of our lives will become so different from our own. 

I read an 8 year old saying… why don’t I have a life similar to that of what is portrayed in the video of Castle on the Hill. To the little 8 year old, don’t wish to grow up so fast. Explore your own area, live each day and smile, as one day you will look back and think where has the time gone…

It reminded me of the quote from Oprah. No matter our journey, or where it takes you, the person you want by yourside is the one that dosen’t mind taking a bus instead of a limo…
Some friends will always want the limo, and want the fast lane.

#663 The Storyteller…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #663 The Storyteller… for original post.

We often think of creativity as mythical and mysterious—it’s no wonder that creative types are often portrayed as isolated and socially disconnected. For those of us who work in a creative field we recognize that creativity relies as much on process, as well as skill, imagination and magic – ‘The Art of Storytelling’.

Storytellers have been sharing their techniques ever since our ancestors told the first story. The craft of telling stories is a tradition as old as the human race. As we can imagine, we learn stories from our parents, and subtly we learn from shared experiences and hidden meanings.

No matter the medium with which we work, we storytellers share a mission, and there’s much we can learn from those of other trades and backgrounds. Story telling comes in many forms and the ones that I adore is the hidden story behind movies. 

Here are my top 6 movies with hidden ‘storylines’ or in some cases inspirational life lessons, so what are you fav movies.. there are so many..

1)     Forest Gump – (Do I really need to explain this one..?)
2)    The Notebook – (For better or worse)
3)    Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – (Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look    around once in a while, you could miss it)
4)  Braveheart – (Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM!” – William Wallace)
5)     Dead Poet Society – (Carpe Diem – Seize the day)

6)    The Breakfast Club – (“We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal”)… We are all the same. P.S David Bowie has a quote at the beginning. Another awesome story teller..(Did you see it?)

#661 The Truth Runs Wild…

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #661 The Truth Runs Wild… for original post.

“I am so angry with him. I need to vent …”
“I think it’s important that you know what she/he has been doing … “
“Have you heard the latest?
“Did you know..
“Did you hear “he/she” has come out?
Wherever people gather there will be conversation; sometimes (okay, often!), that conversation becomes gossip, which may blossom into rumour. 

So why do we gossip, why do we hurt people just to make ourselves feel better?
People who don’t feel good about themselves temporarily feel better when they judge others negatively. When people can’t generate interesting discussions based on knowledge or ideas, gossip can rouse people’s interest. People gossip in order to hurt those whose popularity, talents, or lifestyle they envy. It all comes down to jealousy.
Why don’t we just enjoy what we have around us, and get to know people unconditionally.
Just remember people who gossip about others will turn their attention to you one day. Stay away from the gossipers as they intend to hurt and one day they will direct their attention at you. They do this so they cannot see the hurt they are suffering themselves and end up focussing their hurt on others..

#662 Breathe out the future, breathe out the past..

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #662 Breathe out the future, breathe out the past.. for original post.

I stumbled across this You Tube video the other day and was mesmorized at the talent of this young woman.  I would like to share with you and have captured as much as possible from this video.

Please do like her video and listen, she has so many others but this one was awesome.
Video attached below.

20 Things I’ve learned in 20 years..

1) Do what you love and do it often and do it unapologising
2) Pay more attention to your thoughts.. What your thinking is what your attracting
3) Timing has a lot to do with everything..
4) Not everyone thinks the same as you do..
5) Silence says a lot
6) If an opportunity dosen’t exist, create it..If an idea dosen’t exist, create it..
7) Your feelings aren’t always valid. You are allowed to feel them and take as much time as you need.
8) Self doubt will be your creative downfall
9) It begins and ends in your mind, What you give power to, has power over you
10) Breathe in the future, breathe out the past
11) The most beautiful things in life are moment and feelings
12) What you see in other people is a reflection of yourself
13) If it makes you nervous it is worth doing
14) Certain things will never go back to how they used to be, and that’s ok
15) At your absolute best, you still won’t be good enough for the wrong person
16) If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done
17) Talk to yourself the same way you talk to someone you love
18) Focussing on the negative in a situation, destroys the positive
19) You can’t find happiness in other people
20) Know exactly what you want and don’t stop till you get it

#660 Roots run deep..

By – SL Destinations R Us. Visit #660 Roots run deep.. for original post.

Having a family member who was adopted, I personally believe that adoptees have a right to know who are their biological parents and do think it’s absurd that it’s even a question as to whether adoptees should be afforded the opportunity to obtain original birth certificates and know their true identities. 
Birth parents I also believe have a right to privacy, but by no means do I think that they should be able to have their identities hidden from their biological children. As individuals, a birth parent has a right to refuse a phone call and ignore an email or a letter, just like anyone else who does not want to correspond with someone. But hiding the truth is not the way to protect a birth parent’s right to privacy. Most adoptees I know and one being my brother, has searched for his biological parents to no avail. With ageing parents, the time is getting closer to never knowing. Adopted children yearn for their roots. They run into obstacles, but they keep going. They want to know. They need to know. In most cases, when they find their biological mother or father, they reach out just to understand and to see what other family they may have. They want to establish a connection, but they are also respectful of the responses they get in return.

Hiding the truth is not the way to protect a birth parent’s right to privacy. When I think of people who are adopted, I compare it to a massive tree. It’s strong and unmoving because its roots run deep, however the emotions are like the deep roots of the tree. They pervade the land and are, in a way, one with it. Deep running emotions define a person and affect the ways they act. A person without the knowledge of their past history, origin, culture is like a tree without roots and will act out. 


How can they grow and develop if they have no knowledge of where they have come from, otherwise they will decay inside and become part of the land…
