Day Five- How does authenticity affect my work/life balance?

How does authenticity affect my work/life balance? That seems like a simple question. 

It’s not as simple as it seems as first glance. I’m super authentic in life. I love life. I love everything about it. I am not as excited about work. I would prefer to work at life or rather have my work revolve around actually living. 

Authenticity affects my work/life balance in the sense that it is currently driving me to reinvent how I work, what I work on, and where I’m heading in a professional sense. I want to create a life as an Influencer, an Entrepreneur, a Creator. I am a Michelin chef by trade and that’s been an amazing experience but if I’m being authentic I don’t ever want to have to walk back in to another commercial kitchen ever again. It’s hard physically, mentally, emotionally, everything. I can tell you authentically that while one of my passions is food, my main passion is life. Working in a kitchen is a life suck. Meaning it will suck the life from you. I digress. 

Back to the question. How does authenticity affect my work/life balance? It has forced me to seek out a work life that better fits how I want to live my life. I believe if you’re not working at a job or career that fulfills you on multiple levels then you might want to reevaluate if you’re living authentically.
