You Can Be Anything–And That’s OK

Some of this one’s thoughts about its evolution that might be helpful to others.

  1. The past moulds and instructs us, but it should not constrict us or limit us.

  2. Letting go of bad memories and experiences is a major step in our personal growth.

  3. Being able to open up to friends about our feelings. To quote Spider Robinson: “Shared joy is multiplied, shared pain is diminished. Thus do we refute Entropy.”

  4. Take care of your physical well-being. Eat well, exercise when possible, get a good night’s sleep. Make a small change to your routine each day. It adds up over time.

  5. As important as the above however is to take care of your mental health. Depression, anxiety, stress affect more people than you might think. And if allowed to build up they can become debilitating.

  6. Social media can be a great way to stay in touch with friends, but it can also steal your time and attention. Keep it only for close friends, and don’t feel that you need to stay logged in all the time.

  7. Turn off notifications on your computer, phone or tablet. Except for those that you need to see. A mind forever distracted can never be at peace.

  8. Some people thrive on making others feel miserable. Or are demanding your time or energy and giving back nothing in return. Show them the door.

  9. There is no shame in seeking help from others. And there is no honour in struggling and failing on your own.

  10. Take time to observe the world around you. Realise that the news is not all bad. See the beauty and wonder in yourself and others.

  11. Life is not a zero-sum game. Your happiness should not come at the expense of someone else’s misery. We have more in common than we have differences.

  12. Pay it forward. Perform random acts of kindness. It all comes back around, and you’ll be a better person for it.

  13. Less is more. If you don’t use it, get rid of it. Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses.

  14. There is only one Planet Earth, so do your part to look after it.

  15. Your vote matters. Use it. And hold your representative to account.

  16. Your beliefs are personal. They do not and should not be a rod with which to beat others. No excuse, no justification.

One Year Ago Today…

How this one became a slave, and the effect it has had on its life. (Originally written 26th November 2016)

8391 met with Unit E1 (who was still Athena Leistone at that point) at the YMO sim in Second Life.

It had been a tumultuous few months for this one before that meeting. It had suffered depression, stress, burn-out. Plus the pain of ending its relationship with its earlier Master. E1 had reached out to and supported this one during that time. So when She asked it to help her at the YMO sim, it agreed wholeheartedly.

But now E1 was reaching out for not only this one’s service but its mind and body too.

I Am

I am many things. I am many parts.

I am the maid that dusts, the drone that patrols, the object on display.

I am the instigator of roleplay, who runs with words and leads a merry kinky dance with anyone who’ll join.

I am the moderator, the welcome, the guide to those who are newcomers.

I am the watchful eyes, the ears that listen for the predators, spammers, trouble makers.

I am the ears filled with music, entranced by sound.

I am the mouth that suckles, the throat that swallows, the ass impaled when Owner chooses to use them.

I am the lust that burns, the heart that beats faster in Owner’s presence.

I am the hand that comforts, the arms that enfold those who are suffering.

I am the stare directed at those who dare to attack the vulnerable.

I am the builder of pixels, vectors, text and code.

I am the mind emptied of fear, anxiety and doubt.

I am the soul that Owner unlocked and freed.

I am all this, and more.

But I am just a number. I am without identity, without a will. I am docile, obedient.

I am 8391.

Welcome!

This one bids you welcome to its new home on the Interwebz. 🙂

It has been a long journey for this one to reach this point, involving a lot of change and growth, and shedding of parts of its original personality.

It is excited to share its adventures with a wider audience than it has to date.

Comments and feedback will be welcomed. Flames will be redirected to /dev/null. Trolls will be vapourised.

Jumps up and down and squees.
