Maybe at some point, I was like, if it does happen, great, if it doesn’t, I am not going to beat myself up over it, I have had a great career. The best part about my comeback is it’s on my own terms. I want to come back to play, there is no gun to my head saying you haven’t achieved this so you need to do that."
