What I have now is definitely more authentic...is there a way to be MORE authentic than that? It kind of boggles the mind to comprehend.
Another way to think about it is this...what you would like to achieve in life where you ALSO would enjoy each step along the way to getting there.
For example, my childhood dream was to become an airline pilot and I really enjoyed all my training to get there. And my daily work environment doesn't feel like work. I'm just getting paid what I love to do. The days can be long and fatiguing but the actual work is not work for me.
