NASCAR driver Danica Patrick is out there living her best life after breaking up with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Patrick shared some relationship advice in the wake of recent news Rodgers proposed to his new girlfriend Shailene Woodley.

On Instagram, Patrick revealed some stunning pictures of a recent vacation to Egypt. The professional driver did a bit of soul searching recently and has been focused on her own self. She compared her well-being to one of the ancient Egyptian temples. With that analogy, Patrick says she’s focused on her own “inner temple” and finding happiness and peace through herself.

“Temples. I thought a lot about this word when I was in Egypt. What kept coming through in all of my thoughts, meditations, and in my innate knowing … the word is an analogy. For our inner temple. There are a million simple sayings and ideas to prove why YOUR inner temple in so important,” Patrick wrote. You don’t see things as they are, you see them as you are. Your relationships are mirrors. We can’t receive what we don’t believe. (I made that up right now but I am sure I’m not the first.)”

It may sound cliche. But Patrick believes people should focus on themselves to find personal happiness. She doesn’t believe people will find what they’re looking for in relationships or other conventions. She admitted that she’s been guilty of using past relationships as a personal spring of happiness.

Previously, Patrick was married to Paul Edward Hospenthal from 2005 to 2013. She was also in a two-year relationship with Rodgers. But the couple called it quits in 2020.

“We see all of life through our own personal lens. What you seek is seeking you,” Patrick wrote. “You get what you think you deserve. When you change, things you see change. Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

Patrick said she was going to continue to focus on herself as her own source of happiness and encouraged her followers to do the same as well.

“So stop looking for a religious structure or person or home or a job or a city or a partner to make you feel better. Simply because it won’t work! I have tried!” she wrote. “I would love to see temples here and now to cultivate our ability to build our inner temples. And to remember our magical abilities (supernatural power over natural forces). Us humans have been playing small for a while … and if you don’t believe me, go to Egypt.”
