I don't want to be strong. I don't want to be brave. I just want to live with peace and stillness in my heart.
It takes more than wanting. It takes more than hoping. It takes action, yes action, to have peace and stillness.
The storm that raged for so long within me has past. My mind is calm. This is what it feels like to have peace.
I am a daughter, sister, auntie, wife and friend.
