Behind ‘Polish The Soul’ & what it means to me…
The week I had finally decided to take a leap of faith and create my blog, I was stuck trying to create a catchy blog name. The hardest part of it all was trying to channel a purposeful name. For two days I battled with this. I asked my close friends and loved ones for their opinions on a variety of names. I knew deep in my heart the name needed to include the word ‘soul’. I tried tons of different ways to make it sound appealing. One night I had given up and decided to give it a break. I went on with the evening and eventually fell asleep. I cannot remember my dream from that night in detail. All I remember was the thought that popped into my head regarding the words ‘soul polish’. I woke up out my sleep to write it down which I never do. I instantly fell back to sleep. When I woke up the next morning, I had a faint memory of night prior. I quickly grabbed my phone and looked at my notepad where I had written the phrase from my dream. I played with the phrase in my head for a few minutes until I realized it’s potential. I debated and with careful consideration I decided to flip the phrase and add ‘the’. I hadn’t felt so sure about a name until then.
I am still soaking up the name ‘Polish The Soul’. My initial thoughts were the process of polishing something that needed some polishing. It wasn’t till recently that I realized the depth in the name. Polish The Soul is more than just a blog, it’s a lifestyle. Polishing the soul is an art. The art of renovating ones soul to it’s true self.
I do not believe I chose the name of my blog. I believe the name chose me. I feel so blessed that I was chosen to live out ‘Polish The Soul’ with purpose. Everyday that I get closer to understanding the wonders of the universe, the closer I get to my purpose. I am walking into my purpose. 💛✨🌻🌝
