The Forgotten Virtue of Not Caring

I practiced yoga for years and then seven years ago I lost my leg. How could I do yoga? And jump through and all the things we do in ashtanga yoga. My yoga teacher said, take your leg off. I thought this sounded like the most mortifying thing on earth for people to see me without my leg on. After thinking about it for a few months and desperately missing yoga I said to myself, screw it. No one should be looking at me. So now I happily practice five days a week, take off my leg, switch to a different leg, all sorts of crazy stuff, and I just don’t give a f**ck. Thank goodness.
