If you are a regular reader of my lately irregularly updated blog, you will notice that I've made some changes around these parts, and they're pretty big.
After two and a half years of writing under the "Bon Mot" header, I have decided to move in a new direction, and have changed my title to:
It's been a long time coming, actually. I've always aspired to be as chic and clever as the French title I had ascribed to my blog. I've tried, I really have, and, thankfully, I've failed.
About a year ago, I was in the throes (and still am, in many ways) of figuring out how to be a big dreamer who lives the day-to-day life in peace and contentment. I wrote a coupling of posts sharing the title "The Journey" (click to read: Part 1 & Part 2). I tried to articulate that I desperately needed to find the balance between knowing the dreams God had placed in my heart and living for the day when those dreams would come to pass. I had to figure out how to live through the now, the stuff that makes up real life.
I've worked (in real life) to be the me that blooms where I'm planted and carries her dreams as gifts, not burdens. In real life, I've become more thankful for the moments that carry us to wherever we'll end up.
My blog just took a little while to catch up to the new me, but it's here now, and I'm so very excited to see where it goes. The new title, if you didn't catch it, is "One Momentous Life," with a focus on the word "moment." My cheesy English nerd self loves the idea that the moments make up the stuff of our lives that we may one day look back and see as momentous. I'm beginning to realize that in rushing away the moments of life, the nitty-gritty of the processes we're working through, we miss so much.
So, welcome, friend. I'm a little more comfortable here, and I hope you will be too.
