Enchanted Silence; How to Trust Yourself after a Painful Experience with Priyanka Yadvendu
Priyanka Yadvendu makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area and enjoys running, volunteering, and drinking chocolate martinis. For the first time at 24, she picked up her pen (well, actually laptop!) and began writing her debut novel Enchanted Silence. In the years that have since passed, her life has gone through several changes, but the breaking point came when dealing with the aftermath of her father’s stroke.
It finally dawned on her:
She wanted to laugh with the people she loved, not discuss agendas and errands. She wanted to tell her father she loved him, not be angry at him. She wanted to seize moments that made her feel alive, not feel overwhelmed with hectic schedules. She wanted to move forward in her career and relationships with flow and beauty, not cling tightly onto them. And, most of all, she wanted to feel deeply fulfilled, not chase happiness and say: “I’ll be happy when…”
Until she finally realized her outer world is a reflection of her inner state. Just like the protagonist Shivani Rai in Enchanted Silence, she then learned to let go of perfection and instead be kind and gentle to herself and the people she loved.
