Good Morrow Blogosphere! This post is proudly brought to you by The Lady in the Office who just got me Hotcakes for Breakfast.
I have been thinking as I am usually want to do about things in general, and my Blog Title in particular. As you may or may not be aware, when I started this blog I was in this strange limbo-land. Emotional, mental and spiritual limbo. I was convinced that it was in my nature to keep searching for that evasive happiness which like the end of the rainbow would always be just out of reach.
Like Cain I had resigned myself to the fate of the restless wanderer, without a clear destination, purpose or dream, living with a Gypsy in my heart, unable to settle.
As Lewis Carol so aptly put:
“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
Every morning I would wake to two paths and while still rubbing the sleep from my eyes I was forced day after day to pick a path, hoping that nothing unpleasant would greet me as I turned the page.
I do not want to live this way anymore. Life is a journey and because of the joy set before me I will continue to seek that pot of gold hidden at the end of the rainbow. However, I was not meant to live like the restless wanderer Cain was cursed to be. I may not be aware of it at this point in time but I am convinced that there is a greater purpose in my life than to wake up and survive another day.
Instead of misdirected and uncertain steps, I want to take bounding leaps of faith.
So, I come as I inevitably must to the point. I think I want to change my name from Gypsy Heart to something else, and because I think you are all rather fabulous I would like to hear your opinion on the matter. Whether you think I should keep the name or whether you think I should change it; and if so what would you suggest I change it to.
