My life has been about coming home to myself and my body. I was a fearful child and loved nothing more than reading under any available bed. In my adolescence, I discovered drugs could numb my fear and bring me peace. The journey was short and destructive. After rehab, meditation became my drug. Then slowly, slowly, I started to trust that I am enough, even when I don’t feel at ease. Writing is a big part of rediscovering trust in myself and my own resilience.
