Thankful...

Anyone who knows me well, will know that every once in awhile I'm compelled to be sappy. So here goes, sappy!

I was just sitting here thinking about Second Life. There's been a lot of negativity generally surrounding SL. The camping chairs, texture theifs, drama, grid crashes, etc.

There's one thing I know about Second Life, that will never change, I'm thankful for it and the people in it. Really... think about it for a second. How cool is SL? ANYTHING is possible. One can make a living. One can be creative. One can be a escort if that's what you want! You can be snowboarding in the mountains, next minute shopping for some hot outfit, next minute having a gun battle! Where else can this happen?!

Regardless of all the things that upset us about SL, I remain thankful.

For those who don't know, I have Lupus. Without SL, I'm just not sure where I would be or what I'd be doing for work. This world lets me have days where I just can't get out of bed, days where I can't move my hands, days where my brain is so scrambled that I don't know what I'm doing most times. It gives me what we all need more of. Time and freedom. I don't mean freedom in the traditional sense but more freedom from our daily routines. Wake up, go to work, lunch, more work, home, *insert free time here*, dinner, *insert free time here*, bed. Repeat. For some of us, free time is even less.

That being said, I'm also thankful to all my customers and supporters. Without you guys none of this would be possible. So to all of you, my sincere and humble Thank You. :)

And last but not least... I want to thank anyone who has ever blogged Nyte'N'Day. I appreciate the time and effort that goes into blogging all the newness of SL. You guys even put up with a lot of drama bs because of it! You all do a great job and I enjoy reading all the fashion blogs!


Ok, I'm done being sappy for the moment. haha.

I totally know what you mean, although my store isnt as well known as yours and i make pools and outdoor stuff, i am thankful for the friends and customers that i have made along the way.
I too have a life changing illness, multiple scerosis, sl has helped me out when days i felt to ask the question "Why ME", thank you for your gratitude and i want to say continue doing what makes you get thru your sl and rl .

I am sappy with you Nyte. As with anything in life, there's good and bad to both. It's just what you choose to focus your energies on. I have been laid off most of the year and without SL being my creative outlet, I'd go nuts. Thank you Nyte for your great creations and thank you SL for allowing me to explore my creative side.

Nyte - I really enjoy shopping at Nyte'N'Day and have many, many outfits as a result. I particularly appreciate you taking the time to work on my skin to make it work better for me :) Your work is truly appreciated.

Best to you - in everything,

Love Nyte'n'Day too. It's always amazing to see what you make and how meticulously it's been put together.

Your clothes (and skins) make me feel really beautiful.

Thank YOU! :) As a customer I really appreciate that you listen to what we want as well. The other night when I stopped by your store to shop and ended up filling out your survey, I never thought that you would personally contact me! Thank you!
I just wanted to also let you know that I really understand where you are coming from. I have severe TMJ disorder (with accompanying diagnoses of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia) and Second Life has been an amazing place for me to be creative and do things that I wouldn't be able to do in my real life.
Anyway, thank you for everything! :)
Sincerely,
Goodwillstacy Stindberg
