I was so stressed out, too, when i came here, but being forced to live in a tiny rural community with nothing to do made me chill out. At first, I freaked out. i was like, oh my god, what do I do? Time is slipping by, oh my god, oh my god! But eventually I calmed down and actually started reading and doing yoga everyday and getting up and going to sleep with the natural rhythm of the sun. I feel like a completely different person. I see through all the constructed BS of our lives in the US. The way that we feel like we have to constantly achieve, achieve, achieve--I think it's just an illusion we create so we won't have to feel alone or have to question if the relationships in our lives are really worth anything. I don't want to lose myself in that again. I want to stay true to who I am and be happy and be relaxed. I know that everyone talks about making sacrifices to achieve one's goals, but those sacrifices cannot come at the cost of one's own happiness or health. So this is what I will hold onto during the years to come . . .
