I don't have fear about remaining in that place because I think that life is a practice. You call yoga a practice or meditation a practice, even doctors have a practiceâ€”in life, you're always learning, educating, catching up and taking notice. There's no success or failure. It's a process.
Everything didn't go wrong. I think everything went right, and I'm grateful that things went the way they went. I think if they'd gone any other way, my life would be very different and not necessarily better.
I had put a lot of pressure on myself to be productive all the time and to always be accomplishing. Ultimately if you connect your self-worth to that, you set yourself up for failure and an immense amount of pressure. I was on this frantic horse to always be doing and producing, and now I find that the real growth comes from being yourself, spending time with yourself and surrounding yourself with people who are conscious.
I don't know what my life is going to be like, but I'm really happy now that I've let myself off the hook in the expectation area. And, I guess the biggie for me is knowing that it will never be my goal to prove to anyone that I matter
