Yesterday, I decided to change my domain name. It’s not that dramatic and some of you may have not even noticed but I decided it was the right decision.
When I was creating my blog, I was so excited and driven to get it up and running that I tried too hard to be create a domain name that was unique and relevant to my content.
Rather than delaying starting this project, I just picked a name that I thought was suitable and that wasn’t already in use. It didn’t necessarily excite me or feel like it “belonged” to me, but I thought it would grow on me.
As I started to post on here, I felt slightly detached and felt like I wanted to change it but didn’t know how or what to do.
Recently, I have started meditating at night before going to bed. I can do a separate blog post on this if anyone is interested, but basically it has helped me a lot with clearing my thoughts while also focussing on the areas I deem important in my life.
With this time I spend on myself, it helps me to spread my creative wings and channel my thoughts. Again, this wasn’t as dramatic as it probably sounds and I didn’t have some sort of epiphany so to speak, but this just works for me.
In this time, I came up with my new domain: Refined at Heart.
To try and keep this slightly condensed and not ramble on too much, I will give a brief insight into what this means and what to expect.
About a year ago, I was in a really strange place where I was struggling with my feelings about myself and my looks, etc etc. I was quite unhappy within myself and didn’t know where to go or what to do.
Luckily, I have an extremely supportive boyfriend who constantly encourages me to take care of myself and do things for me. He encouraged me to visit my GP about a health concern I was having which transpired into months and months of revelations about my body and my health and got me to a point today where I am so far from that person I was and I am so much happier.
It is still an ongoing battle and I’m not exactly where I want to be, but I can honestly say that I am doing things for me that make me happy.
In order to be more “refined”, I am working on myself, inside out. Instead of doing what I was last year, which was trying to accelerate through life and do things as quickly as possible and not paying attention to what I wanted and needed, I am slowing things down a bit and taking control to be more Refined at Heart.
I am really looking forward to connecting with you all and growing this little platform of mine.
