Today is the Fall Equinox, where the hours of light are equal to the hours of dark. Although the weather may not seem it, the solstices mark change; the chapter of summer has ended and the chapter of fall has begun.
Like the seasonal changes of the Earth, I am making changes in my life. I recently left my job of over two years, where I was unhappy, in pursuit of something that makes me feel fulfilled. While I whittle away at my measly savings account during that search, I hope to make a shift in my life. I want to stop viewing life as “what do I have to do today”, but instead see it as “what do I get to do today”. I want to achieve a richer and more meaningful life.
I thought today would be a good day to launch this new blog. I’ve titled it “Forgotten Skills” because I want to create a lifestyle that is more rewarding, breaking away from the consumer cycle and living a more natural life. Ways that people used to live. My dream is to run a learning center to teach others the basic skills like gardening, cooking, textile work, ecology and self-sufficiency. I hope to use this blog as a start to that. I wish to share the knowledge that I already know and learn new skills along the way.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
