Dalish is a fat kitty

Recommended Posts

Reposted from respawn point:

 

When I chose Dalish as my username, I picked it to sort of act as a goal point.  It was where I wanted to be, and all of my goals focused around this sort of ideal I had.  Outside in the world, long hikes, as much time rolling around in fields as possible.

 

Then last year I found out I was allergic to grass pollen, and everything pretty much changed.

 

I've tried since to keep going and maintain my presence here because I like the community and the accountability.  But I kept seeing the name.  Dalish.  And it felt kind of like a broken promise to myself.  A reminder of plans that had changed and dreams I'd put aside.  I needed a change.

 

So this time, no promises.  No setting a course for myself without knowing what the obstacles might be.  I'm giving myself the permission I need to explore myself and find my own awesome, without the weight of expectations hanging over my head.

I'm taking the rest of this challenge out, and I'll start up again next challenge.  Give myself some time to figure out where I want to explore and do with myself right now.

Thank you for giving us an update. I hope this name change helps you; I really like the attitude you express with it and look forward to seeing more.

Good for you! I gave myself a new name when I came back to NerdFitness after a long absence; the original just didn't vibe with my new goals and new outlook. A fresh identity is a great way to reset and respawn :D

Thanks :) I've been doing a lot of thinking about my approach to my health and my attitude lately.  Funny how small changes affect things in big ways!

Thanks!  :) I completely agree, sometimes you've just gotta flip it all on it's head and approach from a totally new angle.  And same, the old name just wasn't vibing with what I wanted from myself anymore.

Thanks for the update. What is the story behind this name?

 

Literally none!  I was so intent on having no history or promises attached to it that I actually hit up one of those online fantasy name generators until I found something that I liked the sound of.  So now I have a blank slate that I can attribute meaning to as I develop it.

Sounds good to me! :)
