This is my first official post on my new personal blog! Formerly known as Woes of the Single Christian Female, I felt that that season had drawn to a close and my life needed to move away from the self-imposed branding of single and letting that be the primary definer of my life. This is no longer the blog of just a “single girl”–this is a blog about a young woman who is hungry after God and endeavouring to walk in the steps that have been predestined for her life. A woman that won’t be limited by labels and stunted by a pessimistic title (even if it was created in jest).
A new beginning merits a new name. I wanted a title that wouldn’t limit the content (which will probably be a haphazard mishmash) of this online diary that will document my personal (mis)adventures, growth, heart’s desires and general ramblings. I wanted a name that would grow with me and enable me. After hours of free association scratches on scrap paper, leafing through a thesaurus and a few duds that left my family laughing, I finally found a name that spoke to me.
reveries plural of rev-er-ie (Noun)
A state of being pleasantly lost in one’s thoughts; a daydream
soliloquies plural of so-lil-o-quy (Noun)
An act of speaking one’s thoughts aloud when by oneself or regardless of any hearers.
I have culled through the archives of my old blog when I imported content over to the new domain. It was essentially an emotional purging that was a necessity. Not that those weren’t pivotal moments in my personal growth and faith journey, but I could look through the facade of pretty words and realized that there was nothing of value in the hollow message. A lot has changed since I started Woes of the Single Christian Female and it is time to bid a final adieu.
