Are you ready to stop being cool?
Are you ready for a more gentle, kinder life?
Well, count me in.
Because I have been “cool” my whole life…
I have been cool for way too many years.
I lived in New York City.
I lived in Boulder, Colorado when I needed a break.
I lived in San Diego and Del Mar.
I moved to Los Angeles and I’ve lived there for a long, long time.
I moved to Seattle, which was a pretty cool little city.
Living in places that are cool, and hip and trendy.
I am always on the cutting edge of every single cool new term, from metrosexual to upper-sexual (okay, I made that one up).
I’ve got to tell you something, I have been in Montauk now for two days. And by the time this article is published, I will be back in Coolsville, Cool Angeles, so take that.
But you know what?
I am so tired of being cool.
You see, I am cool no matter what I do, no matter where I am, I am still cool because I am self-secure.
I know who I am.
I have got the right amount of self-love and asshole-ness to go about it.
But I am tired of living in places where you need to be cool.
Los Angeles is a fucking hellhole.
It’s not a bad place to live at all.
But I am so sick of “cool” Los Angeles. It is just ridiculous.
If I didn’t have a beautiful little girl who lived in this city, I would not be there anymore. I would ship everybody that I love and know to Montauk.
You see, the reason why I would live in a place like Montauk is because it is near the cool center of the world.
When I want to be cool, all I got to do is go into Manhattan and be cool.
If I want to go shop in cool, trendy stores, all I’ve got to do is drive to Manhattan and shop in cool, trendy places.
Fuck being cool. I’d rather be grounded.
I am tired of being cool.
I am tired of the game.
And I’m ready for a change.
I would much rather live in Montauk year-round.
I am so ready for that change, it’s unbelievable.
But unfortunately (and also fortunately), my cool little daughter needs me in her life.
Unfortunately, I’ve got to live in Los Angeles.
Fortunately, I am able to have the cool, amazing, beautiful little girl, and I am able to love dearly and be a part of her life.
Plus, I’ve got a pretty rock-on amazing girlfriend as well.
And she also needs to be in Los Angeles, which definitely takes the pain away of living in L.A.
But I am so ready to have a great life without being cool.
I am so ready to get the hell away from all the crap and the coolness, and just kind of live a chilled out life.
I am ready for that peace and quiet. Because what I’ve found is the ability to create every single day without any stress at all.
It has nothing to do with being on vacation. It’s because I really am in a place in which I am grounded with energy, and energetic grounding is really very, very important.
I don’t feel a need to be in Los Angeles at all. No matter how cool it is.
It’s not that I don’t have friends in Los Angeles. As a matter of fact, I have friends living next to me who are equally grounded and perfectly fine with not being so cool.
But at the end of the day, I no longer really feel the need to live in places that don’t resonate with me.
So the question is, how do I make this happen?
I’ve got a girlfriend who splits her kids with her ex man. I’ve got a daughter, and I split her, kind of, sort of, with an ex.
No sarcastic pun intended. She doesn’t even know my story.
So how do I get the best of both worlds? Because I certainly need it. And if the idea of waiting until I am an old man… it really kind of depresses me.
So, I manifest.
Help me manifest the life that I need, because I would love to live where I want to live. That’s at least what my mind has always been about, living where I want to live, and having no compromises at all. Living the life of true authenticity.
Alright, give me something to chew on today, all you regular and cool people.
