IN PURSUIT OF AN AUTHENTIC LIFE
On my quest to discover ways to live my life more authentically—to use my God-given gifts and talents more wisely, and to incorporate my passions and the desires of my heart more seamlessly into the fabric of my everyday life—I came across the book, Something More: Excavating Your Authentic Self by Sarah Ban Breathnach.
On the page titled Our Authentic Lives, just before the first chapter, was the following quote:
“I have a sense of these buried lives striving to come out through me to express themselves.” – Marge Piercy
Two thoughts came to mind as I read that quote: “Wow, that is perfectly worded,” and “Me too!”
Funny thing happened on the way to planning out my life and mapping its course… a God-directed change in plans occurred.
I was well on my way to getting our house, my email inbox and our family’s schedule, more organized (organization which included writing blog posts more consistently and finally cleaning out the garage… though, not necessarily in that order), when I found out that we were moving again for my husband’s job!
We were headed for a wonderful opportunity at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN. Go Vols! 🙂
