I decided on Renaissance Woman because I could not find my niche. I wanted to talk about baking bread, wood carving, hunting, archery, homeschooling, and more. There was a title in old Italy, the renaissance man (also called Universal Man) and it was an ideal that developed in Renaissance Italy by Leon Battista Alberti (1404–72), that “a man can do all things if he will.”
I have revised that to fit myself and say “I can probably do that if I just try.”
I welcome you to join me in this approach to life, you may find that you are capable of more than what you originally thought. When you read my blog realize that I am more of a “Jack of all trades, master of none” and that one of my greatest strengths is not in having all the information but in knowing where to find it and having a passion to share what I find with you.
I felt exactly the same way about trying to find my niche. My dad used to tell me that he and I both were jacks of all trades, masters of none. How do I narrow it down to just one thing when I love to try them all? I have also described myself as a renaissance woman. 😊
I finally settled on something of a self-reliance theme since it can encompass so many of those things that interest me. I’m enjoying following your journey as we share some common interests!
The whole quote is “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” It’s a good thing!
Always nice to find someone who shares my interest, they are too few!
