Choose (your) peace.

Do not use

the stones

that were

thrown

at

you,

as

ammunition.

You,

can be

a strong

and

peaceful place.

If

you

choose

to be.

— Choose (your) peace.

Learning to live unafraid.

To live, unafraid.

Surrendered.

My heart at peace.

My future,

yielded.

Just breathing in

this exquisite

gift

of now.

— Learning to live unafraid.

The last few weeks have brought me personal reason to step back — quiet myself within and listen.

Listen for that still voice showing me (once again) what really matters. And how I need to fight — really hard, for these things, because they don’t come to us easily.

Living unafraid is not our natural state, is it?

Anxiety and fear about things beyond my control — important life-and-death things, are threatening to rob me of so much.

I am surrendering.

Learning to live unafraid.

It’s big, and bold, and unreasonably brave.

The fragrance of peace.

I,

am filled

with

silence

and

flowers.

It is

a fragrant

peace.

—The fragrance of peace.

Loss, has made me fertile.

All

the things

that were

ripped

from my hands,

have found their way

back

to me.

As words.

— Loss, has made me fertile.

(Warrior) Mum.

i mourn

the things

that

(this)

life

will not give

to you.

but,

i do not

mourn

you.

— (warrior) mum.

There are days that I mourn what my beautiful boy will never have in this life.

But, I do not mourn him.

He is joy and sunshine and innocence, and my heart is attached to his by an invisible umbilical cord.

He is the answer to desperate prayers and hope fulfilled — treasure in the shape of a boy.

Return to your Mother.

you,

are a child

of the soil.

if you have

lost yourself,

take off your shoes

and

let the earth speak

to your bones.

—return to your mother.

Nothing heals like nature.

Nothing feels like soil under your feet,

and green is the colour of peace and healing.
