Stronghold of My Life

“The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?” -Ps. 27:1

My Indian name is

Wabun Anung

which means

Morning Star.

When I was given my name

I was told I was the light

in a sea of darkness meaning

I have overcome a lot of darkness

but yet I still shine.

That I am the sign of the

coming of a new dawn.

Medicine is of hope.

I work as a Peer Specialist

and shine my light of hope

on my peers.

I am the Wounded Healer

sharing my wisdom of recovery

through lived experience with mental illness.

I share my experience, strength, and hope

with others in hopes that it will inspire them.

I role model recovery in everything I do.

I hope to be a good example to others around me.

I share lived experience with medications,

breakdowns, and hospitalizations.

I hold hope for others when

they can’t hold hope for themselves.
