A New Identy

Who knew a blog could have an identity crisis? Well, my blog thinks it's unique, and it really started wondering, "Who am I?" "What message do I want to send?" "What are my goals?"....

So after some coffee, chocolate and discussion, we decided "The Offensive Christian" just wasn't who my blog wanted to be, and we eventually agreed on a name change. How did we come up with Delightful Existence? Well, for starters, "Happy Girl", "The Happy Girl", "A Joyful Life" "Joyous Life", "The Happy Christian" ..(you get the point)... were all taken.

More than that however, my first name Kylene means "Delights in God" and my middle name is Joy. I am so glad my parents named me that way because it has seeped into my whole being. I also believe that our purpose on earth is to glorify God, and that existing in this world as his child is a delightful existence indeed. No matter what happens in life, HE is there to guide you and pick you up.

The first half of 2014, for example, has held many stressors for me and my husband whether they be dealing with the consequences of poor choices made years ago, work, or my seemingly constant health issues. Today in particular I have felt very frustrated because after a doctor's appointment I didn't get the answers I wanted. I don't particularly enjoy tests, and when possible I like to avoid prescriptions and find natural alternatives. So it's an ongoing journey, but regardless of how I feel physically every day, I have a deep Joy that comes from within because God is constantly looking out for me. I may loose my cool a few times along the way, but in the end how lucky am I?

The fact that I have the ability to GO to the doctor, chiropractor/nutritionist, OBGYN, dentist... is wonderful. The fact that I have the ability to buy healthy food and the time to make healthy meals is not lost on me. Can I just say, the INTERNET - how cool is it that I can google something like "gelatin and gut health", learn about it, and if I want to, go out to the magical Health Foods store and get it the same day? Plus let's face it, I wake up every morning in 'MURICA baby! Definitely cannot complain about that.  All in all, life is good and I am truly thankful. Absolutely a Delightful Existence.

It's Cocoa again -shhhh don't tell my Mom I said this, but she has nooooo idea what an identity crisis is. My first name is Cocoa which by definition means "a chocolate powder made from roasted and ground cacao seeds."

I guess the implication is that I'm sweet, and enjoyable, so I go with it. But in regards to my middle name, I have so many I just don't even know what to tell you. My Grandma calls me "cocoa-nut", the little master calls me "cocoa-puff", daddy calls me "bean", mommy calls me "cocoa-precious","cocoa-chanel", and "coco-bean".....

I have a lot to think about, so I'm going to go bury myself under some blankets and....ok lets face it, I'm going to sleep.
