I was 24 years old when the losing myself started.

Just one business work into the “real world” and also I knew something had not been right.

I kept wondering, is this my calling, is the advertising and marketing globe where I’ll stay and also truly shine, am I predestined to a life of 9-5?

Instead of sticking it out or working to figure it out, I ran.

I deserted my sweetheart (now other half) and moved to Italy with two girlfriends.

This is when real trip started.

I satisfied people who were bending the guidelines, not molding to culture, and carving out an one-of-a-kind path that included both fulfillment and happiness.

And also at the very same time, I was diving into a strong, stable asana method where time disappeared and also psychological clarity took it’s place.

Yet like most stories, this one involved an end.
