"Living An Authentic Life: My Journey". This post said it ALL and said it WELL! I didn't find pictures "to reference and inspire" me. I found words to reinforce what I already know deep down in my heart. I have been given a life and don't have to look at others to get my "clues"!
The Bible verse from which my blog is named tells me that God has given me EVERYTHING I need for life...AND godliness. A look around my house tells me I have been given MUCH. My "satisfaction, contentment and fulfillment" (Melissa's words) are not out there in someone's blog, but right here where I live and move and have my being (Acts 17:28).
By my loose definition, authentic living is living a life that works for you, instead of struggling against the one you have been given. It is finding satisfaction, contentment and fulfillment in the present. It is living on purpose and with purpose. And, perhaps more importantly, it is a life where we are useful to people around us because we are able to give of ourselves in the way we want to. (Melissa)
Now, in all honesty, I AM still looking for "a few, good blogs". Surely there are a few casual English/French (or whatEVER it is that I like) interiors out there in blogland!
