Authentic in Nature is a personal website to record my journey to live a mindful and purpose-driven life while celebrating growth, craft and wellness. 

I realize that many people are tired of the word "authentic", but for me "authentic in nature" means to celebrate and appreciate the true nature of things, whether it's the wabi-sabi nature of an object or building to the imperfection of our own lives and personalities. It comes down to stripping off any artificiality and deeply appreciating the true nature of things.

I want you to go directly to your heart and search for the truth with no words, to find your authentic self, and bring it out with all your power."
               - Don Jose Ruiz, The Five Agreements

Please join me in the journey in the art of crafting and enjoying a fulfilling life.
