Authentic~ adjective... not false or copied; genuine; real: an authentic antique.
This word has been on my mind lately. I have read about it in blogs and Somerset Life even has a feature on authentic living. When I read the article I thought this is where I need to be. You see I quit my job in November, it wasn't just a job it was my retail career of 19 years. It was a great decision I was leaving a job that had consumed me and taken me away from my family more then it should. Don't get me wrong I love being home and there for my son. But a question came up everyday who was I going to be? I was always defined as that career girl . I tried to pick up blogging again but it just did not hold my interest like it had in the past. When I was that working girl I always dreamed of staying home , developing my blog and opening the little shop of my dreams. When I resigned I thought oh no problem I will blog and do my online shop.....easier said then done. So for the past four months I have cleaned my little heart out, cooked , and enjoyed family time... but felt like for the first time I had no direction.
After reading that article it clicked I wanted to live an authentic life... be that genuine real person.
So as I start this new blog today I look forward to see where it heads. I hope you will follow me along the way~
