As part of the August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, this is the twenty-fifth post in a month long series of posts. (I had a hard time writing this, and I’ve been staring at the blank screen for over 24 hours.)
Neophytegirl started over a decade ago. It started because in 2001 I went through RCIA and became Catholic. (It’s not something I generally talk about for a lot of reasons.) Once you complete all the rites of initiation, you are a neophyte, a beginner. I liked that there was a term for it. A new being. With a beginning. (Too bad I didn’t use that as a reason to rid myself of things that were toxic in my life, even then.)
I wish (like I said in the past) that I had the backups to all of those posts from back then, and even when I recreated the site years later. I’ve kept it all these years in my hope that the newness will finally take over all aspects of my life, and I can finally be truly happy.
