'I hope I find the strength to live life with zest like I use to and to not be afraid. I don’t know what this life now means for me but I’m willing to start the journey to find out.'

But what now? Who am I and what does it all mean? I want to believe and have to believe that this all happened for a reason because my faith in life, love and God can’t let this be ‘just one of those things.’ It must be a greater purpose that I just can’t see right now because otherwise it’s just cruel and unfair. I understand I have a privileged life and I may take it for granted sometimes but don’t worry, I now get the memo that I’m not immune from bad shit happening to me. I will try and be a good person and help others. I pray that my little girl looks over her dad, me and our families to keep us safe. I hope I find the strength to live life with zest like I use to and to not be afraid. I don’t know what this life now means for me but I’m willing to start the journey to find out.
