New name

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.

  1. What a perfect way to describe the best feeling in the world. Reading about how happy you are in your “new” life really brings me peace. I thought you might like to know that.

    (not that I don’t have my own happiness and peace going on, you just do a great job of reminding me about it — especially when I’m at work!)

  3. Love the new blog name! I don’t think there’s any blogging rule against it.

    Hope you and your blueberry girl are doing well!

  5. Hmmm…I’ve changed addresses once and names at least 3 times! It’s kind of like my hair – constantly evolving. I like the new name!

  7. I think you name is great! I actually got goose bumps reading your post about what it means to you, so it must be right.
