two Years+Dreams


"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." 
Eleanor Roosevelt


I always liked the above quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.  It kind of sums up how I like to live my life.  I'm definitely a dreamer and not in the not living in reality type of way.  But I dream big and set huge goals for myself, some of which I never reach (I need to learn how to make attainable goals).

So I've had this blog for two years now.  My first entry was on June 28, 2010 (as usual I'm late with this post.  But I've been late with everything lately).  If you had told me two years ago that I would still be writing on translucent journey in 2012, I probably would have laughed.

But yet here I am.  I love to write and for some reason, I like to talk about rl things through the eyes of pixels.  In the next few months, I plan to knock out several tarot posts so I can at least complete the first ten cards of the major arcana.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go here and read my very long tarot entries.  I don't really have any big dreams for this blog other than to improve my photo skills.  I do appreciate the people that look at translucent journey (all two or three of you).  Seriously, if my happiness depended on how many hits I get in a day, I would have  stopped writing long ago.

So here's to another two years?  Maybe.  Probably not.  I don't know.  We don't know what the future holds for us which does keep life interesting.  Every day brings new experiences, new ideas, new people, new friends, new lovers, new ideas, new emotions and new dreams.  And if one of these days is interesting enough to write about than I will.  Or I can just blog about hair (or skin or prefabs).

Someone told me this week in an indirect way (they thought they were being nice by not saying it directly I guess) that what I was doing with my life was basically a waste of time, that I didn't have what it takes to be successful (*side story*:  a former professor of mine told me something similar once, when I was applying to graduate schools, "you can't go to graduate school-you don't have what it takes".  I never forgot that and I think of her every time I look at my Masters Degree-which is never *end of side story*).  I've been thinking of this conversation all week.  Instead of letting their opinion affect me (what I usually do), I've just become more angry (in a good way) and passionate about what I'm doing.  I'm a firm believer in pursing your dreams and reaching your goals and doing what you love doing whether it be publishing a book, having a successful business (in rl or sl), going back to school or having a kick-ass sl blog.  Don't let some dumb a-hole make you think differently.  Ever!  


Happy July First!
