Name changes?

Taking up the grateful weight of a new name is a glorious and terrifying thing. It is also a cause for celebration and a reminder that rebirth occurs continually.

(I thought perhaps to share my own naming story but it turns out I’m still quite upset about the whole thing. Though a story of failure on this path is worth telling I don’t want it to be part of this reblog. I am happy for my friend and that’s what this is about.)

    Thanks for the reblog! Also: I’m very much interested in hearing about your name change story. You are one of the people I was thinking of a lot as I considered adopting this name, because I thought of things like how we stick to names in our culture, and I know not everyone does, and that there are people whose chosen-later-in-life names fit them, in my mind, more than the names I may have first “met” them under, and such. Of course, the “story of failure” bit does not make it sound like a *happy* story, and I respect that, and I don’t mean to be all “share with us your pain!!” but, it’s an interesting topic, and I like hearing all the things. And also, ❤
