Find Your Courage

No one taught me, or showed me where it was….it was just a natural progression in personal growth to take that extra step and stand up for myself.  To be honest, it felt incredibly good to be one move further from being pushed around.  It puts a smile on my face that I have come so far, even though it took a long time to get here.  So I stand today, on top of the world.  I look over the vast city spread out before me and even though I shudder, it is not from fear but merely a reaction to the chill in the air.

I know myself, and my surroundings, and I am incredibly loved.  I have to thank the people who do, because I know it is not easy to love me, but they make it seem so effortless.  My ability to grow, and to take steps is a result of being able to love them all back as fiercely as they love me.  I feel lucky to have found such wonderful people to accept me for all that I am, my darkness along with my light. So naturally I have to give them props for helping me feel on top of the world. D, Baldi, Keri, Amy, Tek, Tim, Phae, Emm….you will always have a place in my heart.

Happy Anniversary Arcade!

Congratulating Archie on 1 yr anniversary via pillow fight ❤

That cheeky monkey, Archie is at it again! To celebrate I grabbed a pillow and tried to start a pillow fight with him! I cant tell you how excited I am that the new round has started at the Arcade….Id like to send a warm welcome to all the new mods who have joined us ❤ One of the new mods I would specially like to give a shout out to is Mara…this girl is a total hoot and definitely worth getting to know!  Another awesome mod we all have to thank is Marianne…as head mod she has a full plate and deserves massive praise for all she’s had to do. In other news, Id like to welcome lylanis (ℓүℓ ωιтcн ) to the Couture’d Bacon team…she is now my super awesome Events Coordinator/advertising help/ other stuff 😀 I would also like to bemoan the loss of my iPad, which decided to leap in a massive suicide plunge to the floor from the counter.  I’m in the denial stage of grieving, but I am sure I will be reaching the anger stage soon enough.  This is just one more thing in a long line of crappy things happening to me this summer but it’s not the worst, so I spose there’s that. May all you have super awesome tradings!
