Over it!

It's hard not to look at something when you're standing over it!

Chris Zylka c/o - december 2013

Honey's, understand one thing and one thing alone: You are standing over the rest of your life everyday. It's at the bottom of your feet waiting to be conquered for you, by you. There is only an obstacle if you decide there is one. You are only out of control if you want to be. You can choose happiness, love and to see the good in everyone if you want to. It is in your control. However, you can not control people or the future. It's best to accept those things as they come and control how you react to them. That is truly authentic!

It's remarkable that I'm discussing this exactly three years later but it seems that someone needs to have it explained. When I wrote The Inauthentic Life I was knee deep in trying to figure out my direction at the time. It makes me laugh daily to realize that someone thinks it is a way to try to deter my direction at this point in my life. That in itself is Inauthentic of them. kisses!

Do you really want to know what an authentic life is?  To live an authentic life is when you are in control and decide your own direction by taking full responsibility for your choices and committing to them. Take that and apply it to everything. Your work or your passions outside of your work are the things that fuel your creative spirit, they are what interest you and enhance your abilities. Authenticity begins with you and not what someone else says or does to influence you. And realize constructive criticism isn't the same as crushing your spirit. When someone perseveres to attempt to squash your dream don't listen to them. You can succeed at anything at any age. I can give you a list of people who started their career at 35, 45, and 55 to be very successful! And I know a handful of successful youngsters that started at 15, 18, and 21. It's up to you to do whatever you wish and whenever you wish. 

When someone, ANYONE, including those you idolize tell you to give up your dream and focus on only what's in front of you, they are encouraging you to live THE INAUTHENTIC LIFE. Make no mistake you should always be aware of what's in front of you but don't discount that there is more in this world and if you want to see it, then GO. An Inauthentic Life, is a life that no one should live unless they want to, and in that case it would no longer be INAUTHENTIC. If you are living a life that does not bring you happiness, creativity, inspiration and are content with the lack of challenges you face then continue to do so. For many others it is Inauthentic but for you it is Authentic if you are satisfied with it.

If anyone tries to stop you or give you a bad time about what you're doing in life, please realize they are the one with the problem and hardly fulfilled by their life. You keep doing what you do best and love yourself the most! When someone that disagrees comes along by all means give them exactly what they give you and get OVER IT! Love yourself the most!

Kisses, m.
