I read this amazing linkup through Kiki, from in its time blog, who always inspires me with her amazing pictures, devotion and her personality.
This month’s linkup is all about our blog’s names. How did you come up with yours? What’s the secret?
Well, if you’re interested.. keep on reading!
I actually named my blog about a year before I decided to start blogging. It was another lonely night in Brazil, before I moved to the US, and I was trying really, really hard to focus on positive things I had in my life.
I blogged before about just how hard long distance relationships are. And how I felt like I was living in a limbo. I turned a lot to youtube and blogs to cheer me up. I know it’s an edited version of someone’s life, but the encouragement, wisdom, and general niceness of people were real. I loved how lovely the community was.
It got me thinking: I’m too focused on the bad parts of my life. Just like that a lightbulb came on. There were amazing things happening too, I was just too miserable to see them. I decided, then, to live appreciating these moments. These lovely little moments in life. Where you forget the heartache, forget the problems, the negativity.
These moments, are what makes me, well, me. So on a whim, I decided to go for it and created my blog name. Each lovely thing. That’s what I want to focus in life. On the little lovely things that put a smile on your face and bring lightness to your heart.
I wasn’t completely myself until moving, and only then did I feel ready to embark on this journey to look for each lovely thing around me, and brush off what didn’t work. When I’m feeling down I take a moment to breathe, to pray, to look back at how lost I was feeling back then, and how complete I feel now.
I would love to hear how your blog name came to be!
