That overused and little understood word. Authentic.
For the longest time, I heard it being bandied around.
But I only recently understood what it means.
It means leaving a little mess before your guests come home and maybe more.
It means forgoing perfection and priding yourself on the lack of it.
It means a stray hair that is lovingly kept astray.
It means sharing an Instagram image which is less than perfect.
It means laughing out loud.
It means saying the shit that goes on in your mind instead of what you’ve been taught to say. That’s why we love Bridget.
Stripping off what you think you ought to do.
Doing what feels damn good for you.
