Key Takeaways:

  • On your journey of self discovery and healing, take it one step at a time. Drastic change will not happen overnight and habits are more likely to stick in the long term when done in baby steps.
  • A change or habit you start may not show results very soon - sometimes they can show up after a fair while so don’t lose hope!
  • Living day by day can be very freeing. Forget about tomorrow. There might not be a tomorrow.
  • If you want to see change in the world, you need to lead by example. You need to change first. 
  • Sometimes we need to use conventional medicine to buy time to make other decisions.
