Since #WordlessWednesday is a day to let the pictures do the talking, here is a visual representation of where I am at right now!

So my visit to the Cost Plus World Market Hello Kitty Pop Up Shop in New York City where there was a Japanese Calligrapher who I asked to spell out "Butterfly" instead of my actual name totally got me back into Calligraphy again. I used to do it when I was younger, but haven't whipped out my calligraphy pens in a very long time.

In Japanese Calligraphy, here is where I am at right now (at least emotionally):

My Take:

Right now I am definitely an "Ascending Butterfly in Transition"

It is hard to believe that in a few short weeks we will be ending an entire decade!

Are you ready for a new decade?

I am trying to start thinking about my "focus word/phrase" for 2020 - have you figured out yours already?

I also want to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. 

Even if you do not do anything special to celebrate it - it is an amazing time of year to tally your blessings and take a moment to express your gratitude for all that has gone well this year.

Seriously, it's Celebrate Your Name Week!

I don't know why obscure factoids bring me joy but they do! Did you know it's Celebrate Your Name Week? It's celebrated annually the first complete week in March, and this year it's being celebrated March 3-9, 2013. Each day relates to a different element of what goes into your name. Sunday, March 3rd was Namesake Day, Monday March 4th was Fun Facts About Names Day, and today, Tuesday March 5th is Unique Names Day. Today is the day to celebrate those names that aren't found on things like ready made key chains or those tiny mini license plates!

If you don't believe me, check out the Names Universe website for more info and find out what is celebrated during the rest of the week!

I love the questions the site asks right at the start: Who would you be if you didn't have a name?

Your name identifies you to the world, it's a part of your personhood and this week challenges you to connect to your name!

I love looking up what names mean also, for example my first name, Tracy is of Greek Origin and it's meaning is "harvester, summer", it is also of English origin where it means 'place of Thracius", it's also considered to be an Anglicized form of the Gaelic name Treasach which means "warlike, fierce". (Most people that know me and my hair trigger temper would probably classify me under the Gaelic definition of my name, I am more patient now, but even the most patient people have their limits). There might be something to this 'What's in a Name' stuff because in the Greek origin where my name is attributed to Summer does seem to fit, I love Summertime, I love the Beach and swimming in the Ocean!

Fun with the name Tracy:

Tracy in American Sign Language

The name Tracy written in ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics

Hieroglyphs were called "the words of the Gods" by the Egyptians and were used mostly by the Priests. These beautifully drawn symbols were used to decorate the walls of holy sites and temples.


In other odd trivia, the name Tracy has an 'Expression Number' of 22 in Numerology, and for quite a long time I tend to notice the time when it's 2:22 whether it's a.m. or p.m., coincidence? You decide! 22's are considered 'Master Builders' and their Positive Traits are: perceptive, practical, strong, intelligent, and able to handle large scale tasks! and suggested careers for 22's are: manager, politician and builder! It's described as a hard number to live up to because it is capable of such great success.

Will you join in the fun and celebrate YOUR name this week Butterfly?
