When I first started my blog, “Be Nice” seemed like the perfect name. Being nice is something I struggle with, something that is constantly on my mind. I found a really nice quote, “Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves,” and I was all set.
Except that name has been bugging me because my blog posts never relate to it. Plus, I try to focus on the good things in my life rather than the struggles. Last night, when I was rocking Grace to sleep, a new name came to me.
When I say the name came to me, I really mean that it jumped out of a song playing on the stereo and smacked me in the face. My life feels like home. Even with the stress of being a new parent, working full time, and everything else, this is still the happiest, most content, most alive I’ve ever felt. I’m right where I belong.
So, even though it probably breaks some rule of the blogosphere, I have decided to change the name of my blog. I hope you don’t mind.
