Sometimes now, just looking back at where I came from, it was 2014 when I left New York for the first time ever. And I started traveling and then I moved to L.A. in October of that year. It was only four years ago and I feel like a totally different person.
I don't even remember what it was like to be the me that I was before that. It's so distant. It's very strange.

One of the worst, saddest things about trauma is that things have been so bad that you go out into life from that environment and you don't even realize when you're been given good things you don't even realize that good things you have or that are in front of you, that you have no capacity to understand why you have it. You feel like you don't deserve it and you have no capacity to actually like soften enough to take it in because that requires a tremendous amount of trust and that's literally what I am finding for the very first time in my life at 31 years old!

I don't know where to go and it's not easy to go through it, but it's easy to talk about it and create this trajectory once you are successful and everything is the past. But it's really unsettling to think about it. What way to go? It's like two different routes. Which ones should they take you? It's really hard, right?

You know, my brain is always like, "You're not working enough". It's like "You're not spending enough time doing these things", but I have to keep in mind that transformation is cumulative - it's not what you do on one day. You do it over time and I think it feels tough for me when I'm doing it by myself.

The thing is I love being alone and I've developed a life alone. And so figuring out how to make room for not feeling alone is also a balance in the period of transformation, which is like how do I balance these qualities of myself that I think I believe I can only have as an alone person. How do I open up to sharing that with someone and trusting? And that's what this transformation is about right now.

I know I'm in transition, I know I'm not there yet. I very much know that I'm not even close, because I’m still dealing with so much ego thinking, and I know that with more practice I'll be able to kind of whittle down my ego as much as I can, to just really live from a place of the heart.

I do feel very strongly that there's really no such thing as regrets that you have to experience. It's definitely a choice to feel regret. So yeah, there isn't a solution to not feeling lost. I think it's just whatever strategies someone could come up with to have faith in their decision, even if it's the wrong one, just stick by it and know that no one can predict the future.

Can I do that? Can I kind of let go of thinking small and really stop expecting somebody to give me a permission to do that? Versus just being like, Alright motherfuckers, this hasn't been built before, we're just gonna do it.
