[#524] Only The Strong Survive

It’s mine
It’s pure and…
As decent as I can make myself inside
We all know only strong survive

FLAW, ♫Only The Strong

For a very long time I have used music as a coping mechanism, as a soundtrack to not only this blog but also my life. That is one of the reasons why I have never strayed away from using anything other than music to bring inspiration, awareness and sometimes calm to the storms within my head. With my post today I’m using a song which has helped fuel me in dark times as a reminder that if you can remain strong in moments of struggle that you can rise back up and overcome anything.

I thought it would be a good idea to dig it up with having a bit of a creative block as of late and recall that I’ve been in that spot before and I found a way out of it. Strength is not only something that is physical but emotional as well and with my scene in this blog it is showing more of a physical strength it is still very much a mental one as well.

The Men Jail has an item by the store, Bent, which came around at a good time for me use it for the scene. The “#punchingbag” prop comes with poses built inside so you can either display yourself boxing, using your legs to kick, standing beside the bag after a sparring session and a couples pose added in for you to bring a friend or significant other along for the fun.

BENT #punchingbag Prop/Pose features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • 4 poses included (adjustable by clicking)
  • Exclusively @ The Men Jail until September 28th

It’s not often that I share information about a shape I am using as most of the time they are ones that I’ve had made or that I’ve adjusted from one that I have purchased but I couldn’t pass up the “Jeremy” shape by Go&See. I really like how this looks and am also wearing a previously blogged skin “Theo” which is also by Go&See but I am using the summer tone and that is something I’ve not done previously.

The shape has a handsome yet rugged face and gives the appearance of “I may be good to look at but don’t test me”. That probably didn’t make a ton of sense but I thought it sounded good as I was writing it and chose not to go back and reword it.

Go&See Jeremy Shape features:

  • Included style card (to give best look as intended)
  • Shape works best with Signature bodies
  • Eyebrow shaper also included
  • Exclusively @ Men Only Monthly until October 15th

Modulus’ latest release at the Man Cave event has made it’s way onto my head for this look. “Ryan” is a shorter length hair that can be worn to show it being combed to either the left or right side and that is one of the latest features of the brand’s hair products and that earns a 5 stars from me. I sometimes never know which angle is going to be the best when I’m setting up a photo so having that option to be able to make the product look good as well as the composition.

Modulus Ryan hair features:

  • 100% original “next gen” alpha hair mesh
  • Mirrored left and right versions
  • 5 color HUDs + integrated color tinting
  • 40 standard colors to choose from
  • FATPACK also available for purchase
  • Exclusively @ Man Cave until October 9th

My footwear is one of the newest releases by Native Urban dubbed the “Custom Sneakers” and that very applicable with the purchase of the FATPACK. For anyone that isn’t familiar with the Native Urban brand their top notch footwear has a HUD in the “All Colors” pack that allows you to break down the colors for just about every section of the shoe so that you can style it in a way that fits best.

With the amount of colors provided and faces that can be color changed it’s easy to say that you could go a long time without ever having to wear the same exact shoe style. I myself like things that can be changed to give it longer longevity as well to make it just about brand new every time you put it on. This is one of the many reasons to choose Native Urban for your sneaker fix.

Native Urban Custom Sneaker features:

  • 100% original mesh
  • 12 customizable shoe parts (All Colors Pack)
  • 22 different colors (All Colors Pack)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) male bodies
  • Exclusively for sale @ TMD until September 30th

As I wrap this up, I hope that anyone who manages to view and read this and relates to the beginning of the post knows that even though it is cliche to say that things get better in time…they truly do even if it seems to happen more than once in a lifetime. Strength can be found in many ways either through family, friends, a random meeting and by determination and will.

It also never hurts to show compassion and kindness because even if it isn’t show outwardly most of us are fighting some kind of battle. Until the next time our paths cross, onto the next conversation.
