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?

What is on your Earth Day Agenda?

Normally a Wordless Wednesday would go here, but I'm a member of an amazing group of bloggers the Latina Fashion, Lifestyle and Beauty Bloggers and we have decided to collectively make today about Earth Day in some way, shape or form as a group as an effort to help draw attention to our first tweet chat scheduled for Wednesday April 20th from 4:00 p.m. PST/7:00 p.m. EST to 5:00 p.m. PST – 8 p.m. EST. The theme of our first Tweet Chat celebrates the group launch and focuses on “Earth Day,” with hash-tag #LLBlog. Participating group members will also post their Earth Day themed blogs in the morning to showcase the Latina Lifestyle blog content diversity!

While I am sure that with over 180 bloggers participating in this initiative, there will be tons of different ideas and perspectives on Earth Day, lets make sure we are all giving more back to Mother Earth than we are taking from her. Let's leave things nicer than we found them. The rules our parents taught us about visiting someone's house for the very first time, are not bad rules to apply to how you treat the earth while you are outdoors!

Ascending Butterfly likes a life in balance! Mind, Body and Soul are very important, they must be in balance for you to be happy. I don't beleive that taking time for yourself, your needs or some pampering is silly or selfish, time spent devoted to your beauty routines is very important to your overall wellbeing. The moment you walk out the door, you can almost tell the kind of day you are going to have. You should always put the best face you can out to the world it makes a tremendous difference! When you are taking extra care of yourself, you feel more energized and enthusiastic to face the day!
