puzzle pieces

New Title

I'm a tad tired of being puzzled.
I think I've fit enough pieces together since I began this blog almost 2 years ago, to make enough of a picture.
And I've come to terms and realizations in many matters.

So...I've been thinking of changing my name.

Truthfully - I have begun to see myself in a different light. As well as the place(s) around me.
It isn't all about me and what I do and where I live and what I think.
There is more than just me here.
I am only just one life in this big old world.

Not only that, I have come to the stark realization over the past while ~~
we only do get to go around this track of life one time!

Just once.
And I'm just one person.

So...new name;

"Just~One~Life"

Hope the new name change doesn't go and scare anyone.
I still, am me.
Now whether that's a good thing or not...you don't have to comment;)

A HUMONGOUS THANK YOU goes out to Navigating Northward for my new header.
I love it.
I sent her my favorite pictures and she put them together for me.
(I am so useless in the design department.)
I am so truly grateful you did this for me...
Thank You dear blog~friend!!!

Now.....go have a wonderful weekend!

And live life!

Hi Kooky said...

I like it. I haven't liked the name of my blog for a very long time, but I also haven't had inspiration for a new name. Perhaps you have inspired me! Hm...

wonderful new look, dawn! i love how you ponder the everyday so much more than the average bear. ;o)

MDScaper said...

Dawn, in my opinion (and we are all entitled to our own opinions and I respect those that have different ones) we are all part of the evolutionary cycle. There is just one life, this one. There is no after life, no heaven, no hell. And so we need to grasp this life. And while we may be just one life that life is intermingled with all those around us. And it is from this that we need to get our joy in life. Not in material things or success but in how we relate with those around us. We need to remember that there are people all around the world who also have the right to happiness. The common thread that we have with those people is our ability to intermingle with others and deriving happiness from those relationships.

I'm clearly still puzzled - it took me a while to work out how this new blogger had suddenly appeared on my blogroll! Good luck with the new incarnation, don't go messing with your recipe too much:-)

Lynette said...

Great name...it gives a good idea how our lives continue to evolve and change.

sage said...

I like your new title and banner... The photo of your feet resting on a kayak deck looks like one of my shots--so relaxing! You'll have to check out my new post as I have a post card from your parts.
