After writing on this blog for five years, I decided I should probably explain the name. I was looking for a word that meant optimistic and went to the thesaurus, where I found the word sanguinity.
Its definition kind of blew my mind because not only did it mean confident and optimistic, but it also pertained to blood and life. I knew I had the right word for the title of my blog at that moment. Sitting alone on my couch. I can still remember it exactly.
The sunny part came from a nickname at a job I had when I was about 21: Sunshine. One of my coworkers told me I had sunshine in a bag. And as a writer, I’m a sucker for alliteration.
So there you have it: Sunny Sanguinity.
Wondering how to pronounce “sanguinity?” Wonder no more.
