Peace from Panic

It’s been a while! It feels good to be here, writing again. I’ve been devoting my time to another writing project, so I haven’t had much of a chance to be on the blog.

I want to say hello and share an article from Thrive Global I was recently featured in. They talked to me about my mental health advocacy and work with NAMI. I’m a speaker for NAMI’s in-school mental health awareness campaign, Ending the Silence.

You can read the Thrive Global article here.

It’s hard to believe it’s already the middle of August. My favorite season is just around the corner, yay! But I’m savoring each day of summer, aware that it is fleeting.

Take care, Jenny

“Where do we find peace? Peace is in the rosy softness of a new dawn breaking. It’s the sound of the wind across the mountain peak, the quiet and mystical beauty of a snow-flake drifting silence downward to a land blanketed in white. Peace is the elusive Kingdom of the Soul.”

“Peace doesn’t mean the absence of conflict, but involves reaching across our differences to find a way to resolve conflict. And there are so many ways to do that now – whether you’re talking about conflict with your neighbours, within families, or internationally.”

“Peace doesn’t mean the absence of conflict, but involves reaching across our differences to find a way to resolve conflict. And there are so many ways to do that now – whether you’re talking about conflict with your neighbours, within families, or internationally.”

“Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
