2010 has been a very interesting year for those in the House of Void. I was in the middle of an implosion of my local community, when one of the leaders began a rabid campaign against anyone who had different views, I lost my job, got a new one, had to back out of a major commitment, got a servant, and even got married. It was a very big year.
But as I think back, I think it was over all a good year. The positives out weighed the negatives. I want to finish up this year with a thought. As a Master, it is my job to inspire my slave, not merely have her serve me. I linked to this video (Firework by Katy Perry) because I think it embodies that ideal. We have to bring out the best in our slaves and submissives by being their inspiration. And, every so often, it works in reverse too. Yes, my slave has inspired me to push myself, to get me out of my confort zone, just as I have inspired her. Someone told me once that a Master/slave relationship is an unequal relationship between equal people. I firmly believe this. I live this.
So, next year, be an inspiration to your partner. And try to see if your partner inspires you too.
