I've had this blog for a long time. 10 years to be exact. With 10 years of having a blog comes a unique set of challenges, one being blog names. I created the name (and the domain) for this blog when I was 20 YEARS OLD. I was 20, guys. I was but a babe!
"She's Come Undone" was the name of my blog for almost all the 10 years I've had it. When I made the name, of course I thought I was being artsy...or something. I still like what She's Come Undone stands for:
- letting go of inhibitions
- being okay with the occasional breakdown
- throwing away the idea of being perfect
However, for the past year or two I've wanted to switch it. But to what? Little Turkish Girl? I'm not a girl anymore (although there is something to be said for keeping a child-like curiosity).
I settled on Little Turkish Lady. It's the grown-up Little Turkish Girl. I don't have to remind myself to "come undone" anymore because I've already succeeded in my goal. I am now a woman who takes chances, travels by herself, moves to different countries, stands up for what she believes in, and most of all, is open and honest about who she really is.
I'll keep my domain as it is for awhile because...sentimental value...ya know? And for those of you that have just stumbled on my blog and are asking, "Wait...you're Turkish?" Yep, half, to be exact. Turkey was my first real inspiration in life. It inspired me to travel and to think outside the box. For that I still owe it my blog's name.
