Triumph of Hope over experience

It’s time to end the year of 2015, and this will not be the last post of this year, but this surely will be the only one I post to recap the year!

Fact 1: I have been on Second Life (on and off) since 2010
Fact 2: I often felt I had not understood the completeness, the edge SL could have and thus I continued to feel less productive, wasted (not drunk – winks) on this virtual world
Fact 3: My first photo-shoot as a model was in July 2010, since then I have not doubted wanting to be a model!
Fact 4: I have in years between 2010 and 2014, had friends on SL that I could count on my fingers and these have mostly been people I have met / exchanged conversations in the physical world – Goes to say about my own ability to bond connect purely on the virtual realm

Feel 1: 2015 has been the first time in my life on second life where I have bonded with individuals beyond the level of acquaintances and had opportunities to have friends and family
Feel 2: 2015, has been without doubt the year I have had my most significant personal breakthroughs as a model in second life
Feel 3: 2015 has been one of the most stressful years of my life in the physical world
-        I have learned to give my heart away to a dog (a creature I have feared all years of my life before this)
-        I have learned that not all things you survive make you stronger – some take away your hair too
-        I have learned that loss of friends (Nishant I won’t stop missing you) will never be planned or anticipated to connect and reach out more often
-        I have learned that every relationship needs to have lines, lines that should not be crossed for reasons of love and respect
-        I have learned that I am capable beyond my awareness of forgiveness but I do not forget
-        I have learned that I am capable of dealing with pain on myself but not my loved ones
-        I have learned that I am capable of dealing with my physical pain, constraints through productive work on second life, through styling and working on pictures
