It’s my birthday…I significant, dreaded, birthday. The one I’ve alluded to in a couple of posts. In real life I’ve told everyone I don’t want anything and I don’t want to do anything and they seem, so far, to have taken me at my word.
In Second Life I had a beautiful surprise last night from Delicate Flower and Trouble Dethly and spent an amazing night with Zedekiah having our photo taken and being serenaded, just the two of us, by the amazingly talented and gorgeous person, Phemie Alcott.
Now, I’ve had a few messages from people asking ‘what do you get a blogger as a gift?’ That’s hard!!! A lot of my friends are bloggers and I know how hard it is to know what to get them that they won’t already have.
I noticed on Facebook was asking me, about a week ago, if I wanted to nominate a charity for gifts instead but that’s not really practical for Second Life. Then this morning it struck me what I’d like today.
It’s a Sunday and we all know that a certain website publishes on a Sunday. A website that publishes submitted attacks on other people. The submissions cause pain and hurt to a lot of people that are the subject of them and some of my friends have been the subject of them, including both of the people that made my evening so special last night.
So, here is what I want for my big, horrible, significant birthday:
I would love to see some love and appreciation shared today. It could be anyone. Someone you know, or someone you’re friends with on Facebook but have never spoken to, or someone you talk to every day. It could be a designer, event owner, blogger, singer, DJ, hell, it could be anyone that you admire or appreciate. Leave them a message telling them that. Leave it on their FB page, or in world, or in private message. Just choose one person to tell something awesome about themselves and what makes them stand out to you. I would love to see #ShareTheLoveSunday on posts today! That would be the best gift.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes thus far. I am sure it’s going to be an amazing day – this would be the icing on the cake to see people being appreciated today for all the good they bring to our lives.
